U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner called out lawmakers for “spiking the football” after the Obamacare repeal failed in to gather enough votes for Senate passage.

He’s right, there is nothing here to celebrate except for a partisan political victory from special interest groups who want to keep the status quo that has failed Coloradans and the nation so that Democrats can get reelected.

Democrats have failed miserably in coming up with their own solutions, and now the media is snipping a quote from President Trump to “let Obamacare fail” and suggesting that he has some sinister trick up his sleeves to make that happen.

But the sad reality is that Obamacare has already failed miserably on its own. It’s caused insurance premiums to skyrocket and taxed those who can’t afford it so that they are paying huge sums for no insurance in return.

Just days ago we learned that Colorado premium costs will climb even higher next year by 27 percent.

Gardner’s right. This is not the time to celebrate, but to pick up the pieces and keep trying until we repeal and fix the Obamacare pyramid scheme.
