It’s time for members of the GOP, the ones who truly value their words over their re-election, to begin calling out the dysfunctional members of their party. These “two-timing” Republicans are destroying your credibility.

And in honor of their incredulous deceit, I, somewhat unceremoniously recognize them for the “most outlandish political lie” in 2016.

Congratulations GOP on winning “Free State Patriot’s ‘Lie of the Year’ Award” for promising the American people that once you controlled both Congress and the presidency, you would immediately repeal and replace Obamacare.

To your discredit, you’ve worked hard over the past eight years for this recognition.

Per the Washington Post, from the time The Affordable Care Act passed in October 2009 to March 2014, the House of Representatives voted 54 times on measures to undo or update the healthcare disaster. When Republicans finally took control of the House on the back of the Tea Party, in 2011, they passed a measure to repeal all of Obamacare, knowing it would never be considered by a Democrat-controlled Senate.

Republicans kept assuring constituents they were attempting to do the “right thing” for their country but stood no chance of successfully ridding our country of President Obama’s healthcare debacle until voters gave them control of the Senate and the presidency.

So, in 2014, conservative voters rose to the occasion and gave the GOP exactly what they asked for – the Senate and full control of Congress.

But Republicans still claimed they lacked the wherewithal to get the job done, under the rule of an ultra-liberal president. We must have the presidency! Once this occurs we promised to become a “death panel” for Obamacare! Just trust us, said the spiders to the fly.

But as we approached the 2016 presidential election, success loomed distant on the horizon. Acquiring the presidency meant defeating the Clinton machine and the liberal media. Who would be the people’s champion?

But from one of the largest Republican fields ever to clutter a debate stage, billionaire businessman Donald J. Trump, a non-politician, emerged the victor. Motivated by a patriot’s love of country, Trump decided to shed the comfort of his entrepreneurial empire and return America to greatness by winning the presidency.

Armed with an agenda, requisitioned by an electoral landslide, Donald Trump stepped into the Oval Office ready to execute the mandate of the people and sign legislation for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.

But, incredibly, after having eight years to prepare for this signature moment, Republicans proved more worthless than “teats on a boar hog,” unwilling to fulfill their promise to the American people.

So, what’s it going to be GOP? Are the worthy among you prepared to demand your party do whatever it takes to keep your word? Or shall voters issue your walking papers at the end of your term?

It’s your call, but know this. You work for us.

We will not forget. We will not forgive. We will replace you.

And in the words of ’70s TV detective, Tony Baretta, “You can take that to the bank.”
