Tea Party Patriot James Webb, 51, is a retired conservative video blogger who has over a million YouTube views. He posted a video explaining why he might just vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
He’s worried a Republican President would take away his healthcare – his Obamacare – and force him to go back to work.
Webb covers a myriad of topics on his “Hot Lead Retired” YouTube channel. He sticks to ultra conservative subjects such as rants on gay men kissing and 2nd Amendment rights.
On April 13, he departed from his usual messaging and made a few bold statements against Republicans which may anger some of his loyal followers.
Webb said, “And I’m serious because I asked myself, ‘Which party has helped me out the most in the last, I don’t know, 15 years, 20?’ And it was the Democrats. If it wasn’t for Obama and that Obamacare, I would still be working.”
“With Obamacare, I got to retire at age 50 because if it wasn’t for Obamacare, I would have had to work until I was 65 and get on Medicare because health insurance is expensive when you’ve got medical problems,” he explained.
Webb also said he hoped to get into shape, and that his health insurance covers his gym membership as part of a “healthy lifestyle” plan.
“But you know, the Republican Party, they haven’t done nothing for me, man. Nothing. So, I’m leaning toward voting for Hillary unless something major comes up. I don’t trust the Republicans anymore because they’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare. And I don’t want them to do that, man, because then I’ll have to go to work again. My life’s already planned out.
“Just a tough decision. I voted for Republicans for 32 years, I’m a charter member of my Tea Party Patriots chapter. I’m also a veteran of the U.S. Army under Reagan, when Reagan was in. That was great when Reagan was in there.
“Things have changed. So unless the Republicans change with it, I’m probably going to have to swing my vote over toward Hillary.”
