A Republican donor is fed up with RINOs who paid lip service to repealing imploding Obamacare for 7 years but failed to do so when they had the chance.
Bob Heghmann, a retired attorney from Virginia, filed a federal lawsuit against GOP leaders accusing them of fraud and racketeering.
Heghmann, 70, wants his political donations back, saying weak-willed Republicans raised millions of dollars in campaign funds over the years by promising to repeal Obamacare.

By failing to do so last week, Heghmann said some GOP lawmakers are hucksters involved in “fraud” and organized crime to make money off phony-baloney promises.
“[The GOP] has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering, which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors,” the lawsuit claimed, as reported by the Virginian-Pilot.
The lawsuit names as defendants the Republican National Committee, two members of Virginia’s national GOP committees, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, the Republican Party of Virginia, and state party chairman John Whitbeck.
The lawsuit alleges the GOP raised more than $735 million nationally between 2009 and 2016 by promising to repeal Obamacare.
Virgina GOP executive Morton Blackwell dismissed the complaint as “frivolous,” but said he understood Heghmann’s anger.
“[The lawsuit is a] sign of conservative anger that the Republican-controlled Congress has not yet repealed and replaced Obamacare,” he acknowledged.

It’s not just Republican donors who are furious at weak-willed GOP lawmakers. Last week, President Donald Trump unleashed a Twitter storm against RINO senators who voted against the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare, trashing them for being all-talk, no-action.
The repeal failed in the Senate by one vote after anti-Trump RINOs John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins went against their own party and voted to keep the imploding Obamacare health program.

The lame legislators had bellyached about repealing it for the past 7 years and then failed to dismantle it when given the opportunity.

“After seven years of “talking” Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding Obamacare!” Trump tweeted. “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”
Trump then laid down the gauntlet with a call to action: “Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!”
