The Republicans displayed this Obamacare Rube Goldberg chart when fighting against it. House Republicans just voted to implement this chart for Medicare – Email the Senate and tell them “NO” Obamacare rationing and cookbook medicine in Medicare!
Last Week, House Republicans demonstrated their hypocrisy on Obamacare, bringing nearly every key item of Obamacare into the Medicare.
