Trump Care, or to be more apt, Death Care, was withdrawn by a House that didn’t have enough Republican votes to get it through to the Senate. I can’t seem to wrap my head around the reason for its failure. Was it because of moderate Republicans who would have to face a constituency that would find itself either uninsured or paying up the wazoola for health care? Or was it because of hard-line, conservative Republicans who thought that the bill was too generous and will not be happy until there are bread lines.
It’s hard to believe that the Trump administration thought that they could ram this bill through Congress in a month’s time and move on to gutting the infrastructure of the country via a budget bill. Talk about hubris.
