Language Alert: “Conservative Opposition To #Obamacare Repeal”

Emphasis mine:

Privately, senior Republican lawmakers and staff are more blunt. They say they have no problem steamrolling conservatives by daring them to vote against an Obamacare repeal that their constituents have demanded for years.
Sen. Rand Paul walks to a room on Capitol Hill in Washington on March 2, where he charges House Republicans are keeping their Obamacare repeal and replace legislation under lock and key and not available for public view.
“Conservatives are going to be in a box,” said one senior Republican lawmaker. Trump, the source predicted, eventually will “go out front and … tell the conservatives … they’re either for this or for keeping Obamacare.”

Wait a godforsaken minute. If they’re actually repealing ObamaCare, then Speaker Ryan should be greeted with hurrahs. What sort of Orwellian suppository is this? Conservatives don’t want any part of this noise, and the Progressive tools in Congress have made no alternative case.

FreedomWorks suggests we Join [Them] in DC for Our Day of Action on March 15!

It’s starting to look like I might have to take the afternoon off and visit the compost heap at the East end of the Mall.
