Republican Party Fail, II

The top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, Sen. Judd Gregg (RINO-NH), does not want to de-fund or repeal Obamacare. The Hill reports:
"I don't think starving or repealing is probably the best approach here," Gregg said on the Fox Business Network. "You basically go in and restructure it."

That's a change of pace even for Gregg, who's been among almost all fellow Republicans in the House and Senate who've called for the repeal of the measure, which Democrats passed through Congress earlier this year and President Obama signed into law.

"Our view is, you repeal and replace this bill," Gregg said on CNN in March. "You replace it with better law and better approaches towards healthcare."
On the one hand, he does seem to understand that Obamacare is a bad law. On the other hand, the populace is the middle of an historic revolt against big government. Even Democrats, when they fear losing in 2010, talk about repealing Obamacare. Yet, Sen. Gregg seems to have missed the spirit of all that and is talking like it is business-as-usual-in-DC. It is good that he is retiring from the Senate at the end of the year.
