ANALYSIS/OPINION:

For eight long years we Americans have waited for Obamacare to be repealed. Republicans have used the promise of repeal to get reelected. It appears this was a false promise, a betrayal.

We, the people want full repeal of the law immediately through budget reconciliation. President Trump should sign it. By the way, do Congress and the other two branches of government have to abide by Obamacare? Do they have $850-a-month-to-$1,250-a-month premiums with $10,000 deductibles?

And isn’t it strange that we have to pay a fine not to buy Obamacare? Right now the fine is $695 per adult, or 3 percent of gross income, and for a child under age 18 the fine is $347.50. For a family of four that amounts to a staggering $2,000-plus.

The Republicans have the votes right now. How long are they going to let this madness continue??
