Kevin Yoder started and ended the past week with his boast that he and other Republicans in Congress have a great plan to replace the Affordable Care Act.
It’s a proposal called “A Better Way to Fix Health Care.” No surprise: It is extremely short on details about how it would actually work and — especially — how much it would cost Americans.
Those are huge missing pieces, begging the crucial question of why the GOP wants to kill a health care plan without being ready to put another one in its place.
On Friday, Yoder once again expressed his political hatred of what he calls Obamacare in this Twitter post.
Today, we began the process of replacing Obamacare. My full statement below: pic.twitter.com/hb1XXnThRG

And once again — as I wrote regarding Yoder’s nonsense last Monday on the ACA — Twitter users lashed out at the congressman.
As long as the U.S. representative for Johnson and Wyandotte counties is on the front lines of trying to kill health care for millions of people, I’m going to keep writing about it.
UPDATED 7 P.M. SATURDAY: To be fair, a shout-out to Yoder on a different but important matter. In a tweet, he rejected Donald Trump’s attack earlier in the day on Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis, who said Friday he thinks Trump is not a “legitimate president.
Wrote Yoder, “Disagree with questioning legitimacy of Nov election, but repjohnlewis is a hero & icon. He deserves all of our respect. He’s earned it.”
Now back to Yoder’s deep-sixing of the ACA: Here’s the best response to his actions from Yoder’s Twitter timeline, followed by the rest:

Finally, will this one come true in the 2018 congressional elections, assuming Yoder runs for his office again?
