Repukes keep saying they "promised" the American people they would get rid of the ACA.

Problem for these pond scum, is that the MAJORITY of Americans want to keep or improve the law, NOT destroy it. Of course, facts never get in the way of these fascist creeps from selling us all out.

1. This bugs me too. They keep saying they promised, but did their constituents actually demand this?

This issue has been nurtured by angry Republicans for 7 years. Most of the general public is not outraged by Obamacare, and recent town hall meetings show the opposite.

They need to be called out on this.

3. Exactly. Unfortunately, few in the MSM are confronting them with their lies.

What else is new?

2. They made that promise when most people didn't know what the ACA did

Only that the Kenyan Socialist had his name on it so it's bad. "I don't have Obamacare, I got my policy from Kynect!"

Now that the idiots realize how it benefits them, it's too late.

4. That was a huge part

of their campaign. They have been promising for years they would appeal it. Their voters must have liked the idea, because they have the majority to do just that. Hell it is in their platform that they would

Restoring Patient Control and Preserving Quality in Healthcare Any honest agenda for improving healthcare must start with repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare. It weighs like the dead hand of the past upon American medicine. It imposed a Euro-style bureaucracy to manage its unworkable, budget-busting, conflicting provisions. It has driven up prices for all consumers

5. The political target embedded in the term "Obamacare"

As initially coined by the GOP: OBAMA. That "scary guy from Kenya", guilty of "presidenting while black".
So get rid of Obamacare, and you will get rid of Barack Obama his legacy, and everything ever associated with him.
The "care" part is insignificant in this context. If my pre-existing condition no longer applies to my insurance eligibility (said the Teabag conservative), do I really care if it benefits me? No! If Obama is for it it is automatically "bad". End of argument.
Cynical beyond measure, but another tool in the shed for motivating people to oppose their best interests.

6. annoyed because they are prevaricating

--all most people wanted was to be free of the fine if they didn't get insurance
--to say they are fulfilling a promise is only true about one small aspect of what their plan includes

7. They did

 

They spent 8 years repeating over and over that their priority was destroying the ACA, and they won a majority in both houses.

We all know that most people who voted for them either don't understand what they're actually voting for, or don't understand it'll effect them too, but let's not get it twisted. GOP voters are getting exactly what they voted for, and everyone is suffering as a result.
