U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder has made a career out of saying he’s on the case to get a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. He did it once again in The Star this weekend, with predictable results.

Readers blasted the Johnson County congressman for the lame defense he and two other Kansas GOP representatives — Lynn Jenkins and Roger Marshall — provided in whining that it would take some time to get things right and repeal Obamacare.

Fact: The Republicans more than seven months ago released their ballyhooed A Better Way “plan” to replace the ACA, which Yoder referred to it in The Star. And yet Republicans are struggling mightily to move forward.

Yoder was just re-elected in November, so he has no immediate concerns about losing his job. Then again, if informed Kansans and others stay in the loop, Yoder could be gone in 2018.
