“I hope so”

If Republicans tie a repeal Obamacare's individual mandate to their tax cuts for the rich, will the sweeping health care law collapse?

At least one Republican senator hopes that is the case.

Look at this asshole:

When asked by TPM if the mandate’s repeal would be a “death blow” to the Affordable Care Act, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) first answered “kind of,” then, chuckling, amended his answer to “I hope so.”

Asked if he was concerned that repealing the mandate would—as many experts have predicted—drain the market of young and healthy people, spiking the health care premiums for those who need insurance and remain in the individual market, Inhofe told TPM: “Let’s find out. I don’t know.”

Ha! Get it? Because 30 million people could lose their health care and corporate fat cats will walk away smiling.

Super funny!
