GOP Rep. Jack Kingston Wants to Make Peace With Obamacare

If we really believe that Obamacare is the motherload of all entitlements;  that it will create permanent dependency for tens of millions of Americans; that it will induce unsustainable inflationary pressure on the cost of healthcare and health insurance; that it will saddle the next generation with crippling debt, why would we ever stop fighting it?

Unfortunately, it appears that many within the GOP have surrendered the field to this new leviathan.  Republicans failed to even make the Obamacare tax hikes – the most unpopular part of the law – an issue during the tax negotiations.  So what is in store for the next Congress?

Well, here is what Jack Kingston (R-GA), the incoming chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee on healthcare, had to say about the law:

“I don’t want to go in there saying, ‘By golly, there’s a new sheriff in town,’” the Savannah resident told POLITICO. “Obamacare has been the law of the land, and it is getting implemented. We have to work in that context.”

The Politico article goes on to say that Kingston is basically committed to passing a bipartisan appropriations bill to fund the HHS and Obamacare.

This is why we must turn away from Washington and to the sovereign states for any bold leadership against the law.  Republicans in Washington have already given up even on partial repeal or defunding as part of any leverage in budget negotiations.  It’s incumbent upon the Republican governors and state legislators to grind this un-American law to a halt.

    Your plan is exactly what is needed. Let the states recover their sovereignty and unelect officials who will not accept that plan.

    You can thank Jack Kingston for the flood insurance rate debacle in Georgia. I now pay more than twice as much for flood insurance as my
    homeowners insurance, and for less coverage. Jack Kingston voted for the bill by Maxine Waters which is devastating Georgians while sending
    billions from Ga to the north east and LA to cover hurricane damage there. That money could have helped to boost employment in Georgia, but no. Jack Kingston actually thinks he did a good thing and that he lifted the flood insurance burden from taxpayers. Well, I am a taxpayer and this is a hidden tax dumped on a few people like me who happen to live by a small harmless creek in Georgia.

    This is what happens when we elect people like Jack Kingston with no business sense. 22 years is enough! Do not vote for Jack Kingston to
    become a senator with even more misguided power. That hippocrit has even posted objections on his web pages to what HE let FEMA do to us as if he had nothing to do with it. Please vote for David Perdue on 7/22.
