Elise Stefanik Profile in Courage: AHCA Edition

Choconillaberrydough is her favorite flavor. That's from my comment on a previous post. Yeah, that's probably not worth pointing out. If Ben and Jerry's starts to make that I want royalties, though.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, was still undecided, as of Thursday evening, on her vote on House Republican legislation to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama’s health care plan.

“The legislation is still being finalized and she is waiting to review the final text that is passed through all committees and negotiated by Congress and the White House,” said Tom Flanagin, the congresswoman’s spokesman. 

And besides, she needs a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Here's the scoop after the humiliating withdrawal of the bill.

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsboro, who did not take a public stance on the legislation before or after the vote was canceled, said she remains committed to repealing and replacing Obama’s health care law.

And she never will take a public stance so all you meanies stop being so mean and asking. It's not like she's your rep to Congress or anything. I do like to see that she's committed to R and R. I'm holding out hope that it will be an annual occurrence on ACA signing day. The GOP will flail around trying to cob together a bill to replace it. 

Let me point out a pet peeve.

“Throughout this process, I’ve fought for the needs of the North County and negotiated better access for critical issues like women’s health and maternity care,”


“We need to continue working to find solutions we can agree on that will help continue to replace Obamacare with reforms that lower costs, increase access and improve quality for hard-working North Country families,” she said. 

Ah the irony of someone who won't hold town halls using the buzzword 'access' every chance she gets. 

Stefanik said she remains committed to improving the health care system.
