Who is GOP looking out for?

Thanks to Obamacare, the premiums on health insurance went down 50 percent in New York. This is in addition to closing the drug doughnut hole, covering children until they're 26 and preventing insurance companies from dumping clients if they get really sick and run-up extensive medical bills.

But, of course, the Tea Party-controlled House of Representative has voted 38 times to repeal Obamacare and almost all of the GOP governors have refused to participate even though the federal government pays for 95 percent

You have to wonder who the Republicans are looking out for. It sure isn't people who want cheaper insurance coverage. Maybe it's those lobbyists on K-Street and their political donors?
