Compulsion to confess…from a prominent Swamp Creature.

Via BizPac Review.

….Former Republican House majority leader Eric Cantor revealed that though the GOP banged the drum of repealing Obamacare for years, he “never believed” it was going to happen.

“To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office . . . .” the former Virginia congressman told the Washingtonian, shaking his head. “I never believed it.”

Cantor was at the forefront of the charge to repeal former President Obama’s signature policy, making the hot button issue a central part of the GOP rhetoric. Supporters were promised that if and when Republicans ruled the Senate and House, they would get the job done.

    Was his boss secretly meeting with Obama, a tipoff?

    2012 RomneyCare nominee would only say that RomneyCare was wrong for a federal program. That was too weak for many and some stayed home because if we elect Romney and get Ocare permanently as a result, was it worth it? I guess we’ll find out now.
