"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately." -- Benjamin Franklin
The Republicans failed on the replacement for Obamacare, and it has given Nancy Pelosi and her gang of Democrat Party leftists reason to celebrate. The media is loving it. Understand, however, Donald Trump is not the failure here, it is the fearful Republicans who are so worried about politics that they've failed to do what they are there to do. . . repeal an unconstitutional law completely. Screw replacement, pass a one page bill repealing the whole thing. When people cry about lost healthcare, remind them that the States have their own healthcare safety nets. . . which, by the was, is constitutional. Not recommended, but constitutional. The Affordable Care Act, they say, will collapse if left to die on the vine, but until then federal money will continue to funnel through it because Paul Ryan and the fearful Republicans blew it, couldn't get their act together, and refuse to simply repeal the unconstitutional law.
I wonder if they can even get Gorsuch through confirmation in the Senate?
What is with these Republicans?
We gave them the House in 2010. We gave them the Senate in 2014. Now they have the White House, and the Republican Congress still acts like they are in the minority. I know what a minority looks like, I live in California. Democrats, in this State, have a supermajority. There is nothing the GOP can do about any of the socialist leftist madness going on here in this State. I believe we can flip this State, while most think it is a lost cause. No wonder they think that. We can't even get something simple and obvious like repealing Obamacare done when we hold both Houses of the U.S. Congress and the White House. What in the heck is the problem, here?
The Republicans have failed Trump, and they have failed the American People.
Trump wants to drain the swamp, and that has to include the staffers, bureaucrats, Democrats, and apparently, an enemy faction in the Republican Party who refuses to do what is right, conservative, and constitutional.
