Two months ago, Republican leaders in Congress (including South Jersey Congressman Frank LoBiondo) met in secret and tried to ram though an Obamacare replacement that was just as bad as Obamacare. They were stopped only by the determined opposition of some three dozen conservative Congress members known as “The Freedom Caucus”. Then it looked it looked like no repeal of Obamacare was possible. That was when our own Republican Congressman Tom MacArthur of Ocean/Burlington County stepped forward and became a game-changer.
Tom MacArthur reached out to conservatives in the Freedom Caucus and found common ground with Republican moderates. He almost single handedly worked out the compromise that includes some very good conservative ideas. If Republicans in the Senate do their part, MacArthur’s bill can bring free markets, competition, better care, and lower prices back to our health care system.
The Republican Establishment is now punishing MacArthur for doing the right thing. Yesterday, they forced MacArthur was out of the “Tuesday Group”– some 40 “moderate” Republicans who include anti-conservative NJ Republican Congressmen like Leonard Lance, Frank LoBiondo, and Chris Smith. These “Tuesday Group” Republicans are generously funded by “the swamp” that Trump promised to drain. It is not enough to criticize and politicians who oppose us, and relentlessly advance their big spending, big borrowing, big tax, big government agenda. We must also support politicians when they do the right thing. Now, nobody deserves our support more than officials like Congressman Tom MacArthur when they do the right thing.
