Plenty of people are angry that Republicans haven’t kept their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act now that they hold Congress and the White House. Retired attorney and GOP donor Bob Heghmann wants to do something about it.
The Virginia Beach resident has filed a lawsuit against the national and state Republican Party to get political donations back, accusing the party of fraudulently deceiving its supporters. “The people of the United States do not want this,” he said of Obamacare on Wednesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”
Republicans up and down the ballot, including President Donald Trump, ran in 2016 on the vow that they would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. They promised to repeal Obamacare when it came to fundraising millions of dollars for 2016, but now that voters want to see their promises in action, Republicans can’t seem to follow through.
Heghmann is arguing that the Republican Party is responsible for its campaign promises to donors and should withhold funding from members of Congress or return donors’ money if Obamacare isn’t repealed. Ultimately, both the Republican National Committee and our lawmakers should be held accountable.
“I’m really trying to rally the people to go to their Republican congressmen and senators [and ask], ‘What is going on?’” he explained.
