GOP Donor and Attorney Suing Republicans Over Obamacare Repeal

It seems as though congressional republicans’ constituents are sick and tired of their elected officials’ inability to deliver on Trump’s campaign promises.

During the grueling and lengthy election of 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump made a very clear argument to the American people regarding his priorities should he wind up taking control of the White House.  Now, after Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing loss in November, Trump stormed into the Oval Office ready to lay down the law on a number of these issues, not the least of which was his campaign promise to repeal and replace the disastrous “Affordable” Care Act, or, Obamacare, as it was unnecessarily bankrupting our nation’s middle class.

Now, as President Trump faces a ridiculous liberal “resistance” to his presidency, that has unfortunately spread deep into the republican ranks as well, the battle for Obamacare’s repeal is still ongoing…6 months into Trump’s first term.  The latest blow to the process could be a fatal one as well, with the August recess set to begin for Congress momentarily.

This abject failure concluded with a number of republicans turning tail and siding with the democrats, not the least of which was John McCain – a notoriously liberal Senator from the state of Arizona.

For one GOP donor and attorney, this latest treachery from the party to which he donated was the last straw.

“A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act he’s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering.

“Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren’t going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

” The GOP ‘has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats,’ the suit said. Racketeering, perhaps better known for use in prosecuting organized crime, involves a pattern of illegal behavior by a specific group.

“The lawsuit lists as defendants the Republican National Committe and Virginia’s two national GOP committee members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, as well as the Republican Party of Virginia and state party Chairman John Whitbeck. “

Heghmann isn’t alone in his disappointment either.

A great many Americans share the abject displeasure of watching the republican party fall victim to infighting and Washingtonian elitism over the course of Trump’s young presidency.  Too great a number of our nation’s legislators on the right side of the aisle have turned to self-preservation as their number one priority in governance, as opposed to committing to the will of We The People.  This partially explains why Congressional approval ratings dipped to an unfathomable low this week as well.
