As much as the majority of Americans were disgusted with the way Democrats foisted Obamacare on the country, destroying the private insurance market, blowing up monthly premiums and exploding out-of-pocket costs for most, they are going to be even more disgusted by the fake Obamacare “repeal” measure currently being crafted largely in secret in the GOP-controlled Senate.

After the House barely managed to pass a measure that, while not perfect, at least dismantles sizable portions of the Affordable Care Act, Republican leaders in the Senate vowed that version of “repeal and replace” was “dead on arrival” in their chamber.

And, true to their word, it was. The latest iteration of healthcare “reform” is a sick joke being played on Republicans’ constituents and all Americans, as it perpetuates some of the worst things about Obamacare — meaning, the bill the Senate is writing will do little in the form of providing relief to Americans.

However, the bill will be a nice payoff (at taxpayers’ expense) to a number of Republican senators who, for some reason, think they have some inherent right to hold the entire country’s health care system hostage for their own personal gain.

Here are a half-dozen ways they are doing so (note that three of these apply specifically to that RINO Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska), as reported by The Federalist. They are:

— Buying off Murkowski for her support (again): Section 106 of the Senate bill contains brand-new language that dedicates one percent of the new Stability Fund to “each state where the cost of insurance premiums are at least 75 percent higher than the national average.” Only one state fits that description, Bloomberg News reported — Alaska. If passed as-is, that means $1.32 billion in Stability Fund dollars is automatically going to Alaska.
