Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter derided congressional Republicans in her latest column, asking what they've been doing for three weeks while President Donald Trump has chosen a staff, sent cabinet nominees to the Senate, and signed orders.

"More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross 'staffing an entire branch of government' off the list," Coulter wrote. "Only the Senate confirms nominees, which they've been doing at a snail's pace, so they've got loads of free time — and the House has no excuse at all.

"Where's the Obamacare repeal? Where are the hearings featuring middle-class Americans with no health insurance because it was made illegal by Obamacare?"

Coulter's column carries the headline, "The Silence of the Lambs Congress." She points out that during the Obama administration, House Republicans passed six bills that would repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Trump has vowed to work with Republicans to repeal and replace the healthcare law,  but thus far there has not been any hint of a bill that would do just that.

"The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law," Coulter wrote. "Back then, Republicans were full of vim and vigor! But the moment Trump became president, the repeals came to a screeching halt.

"This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They're utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump."

Sen. Bob Corker recently admitted the Republican party has not yet begun working on a bill  that would replace the controversial healthcare law first signed in 2010.

Former Texas Republican lawmaker Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV last week Obamacare needs to be repealed in the next two months in order for Republicans to keep their campaign promises to American voters.
