Americans for Prosperity, a group founded by the Koch brothers, met in Florida to hear some super-serious thoughts from presidential contenders Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, along with Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry and Rick Scott. No, the discussion was not about the situation in Syria. Don’t be silly.
The topic is their war on Obamacare, because that’s their top priority. Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips began the meeting saying, “Well, good afternoon, fellow freedom fighters.”
That welcome was met with applause from Republicans, all of whom have no new ideas to offer. Wash, rinse, repeat. They gathered to discuss their strategy, but the only thing missing was a strategy.
While many Americans take time off this weekend, a group of conservative activists are meeting in Florida. Americans for Prosperity, a group that was founded by David and Charles Koch, is holding its annual summit in Orlando. That gathering includes several rising stars among conservatives – Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Texas Senator Ted Cruz. But in terms of issues, NPR’s Greg Allen reports, one seems to stand above all – stopping Obamacare.In a sickening display each Republican weighed in on deregulation, school voucher programs, Obamacare, but nothing was mentioned about Syria. Nothing was mentioned about what to replace Obamacare with.
