Over the past couple of months, Republicans have been desperately attempting to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, and have failed horribly.

The GOP attempted to pass the first bill through Congress, which only had a national approval rate of 17 percent, and were unsuccessful. But not before embarrassing themselves a second and third time in their desperate attempt to bring “Trumpcare” to life, which resulted in a huge crash and burn that was worst than the first time.

On Saturday morning during MSNBC’s A.M. Joy, host Joy Reid conducted an interview with Massachusetts Congressman, Joe Kennedy III, asking him why Republicans are so worried about repealing this bill instead of improving it.

Kennedy told the morning show host:

‘There isn’t any real justification for (repealing the ACA and replacing it with something that robs 24 million in coverage and guts the actual care) other than the concerns that are somewhat valid, that some Republicans are hearing back in their districts about challenges that their own constituents have about concerns over getting quality affordable health care. Which, by the way, I and my colleagues — Democrats — are 100 percent committed to ensuring that we strengthen the ACA to make sure they do get access to that coverage.  When you ask that question to Republicans, they don’t have an answer.’

Basically, Kennedy is saying that, despite the willingness and eagerness from Democrats to sit down and work on some of the problems of the Affordable Care Act, such as bringing down deductibles/premiums that have skyrocketed, Republicans have refused to do so.

Along with their big time money donors, the GOP is mainly interested in laws that will benefit major corporations and the wealthy rather than making sure that every American is insured.

A recent poll showed that a majority of Republicans believe the GOP and Trump are to blame for future problems with the Affordable Care Act. Sounds like they may want to get it together sooner or later, or they are going to face even more problems.
