WASHINGTON DC – Illinois' U.S. Senator Dick Durbin conveyed his dissatisfaction with the Senate Republicans taking their first step in repealing Obamacare Thursday afternoon on Facebook.
During the voting marathon on 26 measures set before the Senate Wednesday night, both Senator Durbin and Illinois' new U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth voted with the Democrats against any effort that would weaken or repeal Obamacare.
The proceedings got contentious at one point, according to the New York Times:
During the roll call, Democrats staged a highly unusual protest on the Senate floor to express their dismay and anger at the prospect that millions of Americans could lose health insurance coverage.
One by one, Democrats rose to voice their objections. Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington said that Republicans were “stealing health care from Americans.” Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon said he was voting no “because health care should not just be for the healthy and wealthy.”
As Senator Durbin wrote:

Commies gotta Commie
If he were stupid and not evil I’d say I don’t think Durbin understands the difference between “health care” and “health insurance” and doesn’t know the definition of “stealing”.
Of course he is evil and not stupid so I know he makes this confusion intentionally.
If Durbin is beating the drums, can he pause to take requests, something with a nice, snappy beat 😉
Obamacare has been disastrous for American citizens! Illegal aliens love it though..
