Yesterday’s cancellation of the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare was an outright embarrassment and disgrace for Trump and the GOP. They had a chance to do something positive for the American public and they totally blew it with a farcical document and subsequent voting catastrophe.
We have to realize that after eight miserable years of Obama’s crap, we look like beginning four years of Trump/GOP’s nonsense. Same game different ball. They can’t even create a replacement for Obamacare, which shouldn’t take much of an effort, because Obamacare is bordering ridiculous and very few like. As such, even the Democratically-controlled Congress that passed it (without reading its contents) seven years ago made sure through law that they were not, in any shape or form, covered by it. They voted on it for the American public to suffer.
So, we should have realized that the GOP was going to deliver pretty much the same farce, and right on cue they did. They couldn’t even get their troops to rally like the Democrats did when Obamacare was passed, so their attempt to change Obamacare didn’t even get to the voting stage.
Based on this performance, you can be pretty much assured that Trump, Ryan and everyone in favor of the replacement – American Healthcare Act – will be distancing themselves from it over the next several weeks, and putting on a good ‘aw shucks’ face, hoping the public will quickly forget the embarrassment.
Fat chance; most of the public want Obamacare repealed and replaced with something decent, but the GOP, led by Trump and Ryan, have let them down straight out of the gate. Is this a sign of the future? Money says yes, as we have kindergarten running the show.
