Repeal Replace Repeat

bucket list
If Peter Roskam's re-election campaign was on life support, it just got a shot in the arm from ObamaCare. And not a minute too soon, because if ObamaCare had been repealed then Peter Roskam's Congressional career would be flatlining.

Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, represents a district that Hillary Clinton won by a 10 point margin. And, in what could only be described as a near-death-experience, Peter Roskam this week came perilously close to casting an up or down vote to repeal ObamaCare. Had he voted to repeal ObamaCare, Roskam risked losing his job when his constituents lost their health insurance. But vote against repealing ObamaCare and Roskam risked losing his job to a Tea-Party challenger in the Primary.

As luck would have it, Roskam had to risk neither this week -- because TrumpCare was DOA. And for now and the foreseeable future, Peter Roskam is ObamaCare-free -- a medical miracle!

Roskam was feeling his oats well enough this weekend to tell the North Cook News ...
Six-time Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam said he would have voted in favor of the president's proposed health care bill but it was pulled from consideration before it could proceed to a full House vote on Friday.

If the North Cook News looks familiar, it is published by the same outfit that publishes the Lake County Gazette -- Lake County's #1 source of pro-GOP fake news.

Just what the spin-doctor ordered!
