This is what he said to his constituents in his weekly newsletter:

This week, I took the first step in fulfilling a promise I made to the 16th District and was elected on: repealing and replacing Obamacare with a more patient-centered, affordable, and flexible health care system. Ohioans are suffering under Obamacare. Premiums have risen over 90 percent since 2013, deductibles are skyrocketing, and insurers are running for the door in the exchanges.

Please understand that there is a lot of misinformation out there and the AHCA does not allow insurers to discriminate against people because of their gender and pre-existing conditions, and no one can be denied coverage. [That’s true, AHCA does not do any of those things, HOWEVER, the AHCA—aka Trumpcare 2.0—gives states special permission to do those things if they so wish, so everyone should expect reduced services at higher costs for fewer people. JH] The bill is now in the Senate’s hands, where it will undergo more changes before its passed into law. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the other chamber on producing the strongest legislation possible to make healthcare accessible and affordable for all Americans.

Here’s what Jim Bupkis* Renacci said before the vote.

Note that at timemark 4:03 Renacci pretends that he’s already been elected governor of Ohio.

Can you say hubris?

Meanwhile, in the Senate…

*After extensive searches, I have been unable to determine what Renacci’s middle initial stands for. Until I can find a reliable reference to Renacci full name, Bupkis will do.
