GOP Sued for Failure to Overturn Obamacare

Aug 7, 2017

A donor to the Republican party is suing the GOP for fraud after legislators failed to pass an Obamacare repeal. Bob Heghmann is suing the GOP for fraud and racketeering and wants his political donations to be refunded. In the suit, Heghmann argues that GOP raised millions of dollars in campaign funds promising to repeal Obamacare but knew full well that they would be unable to do so. The national GOP raised $735 million in large part because it promised to repeal Obamacare. Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, two of the defendants in the case, called the suit a “frivolous nuisance suit that should be thrown out of court by any judge.” Even if the suit is thrown out of court, it makes the point that voters are angry. Republicans utterly failed to deliver on their promises. “Too few conservatives are willing to invest their time, talent, and money and personally participate inside the Republican Party,” Blackwell said. “A Republican majority will mean a conservative majority if and when a sufficient number of conservatives figure out why the success of their principles depends on their personal involvement in local, state and national Republican Party committees and in party nomination contests.”
