So, where IS the Republican health care plan?
today at 10:47 am
Republicans and most particularly President Donald Trump have screwed up politically by failing to come up with a replacement health care plan for Obamacare that is believable, comprehensive, affordable and practicable.
The usual GOP excuse is that the Democrats in their blind partisanship would kill any such plan. Except Republicans never came up with a realistic plan that was appealing to and understandable by the public. At one time, Republicans held the White House and both houses of Congress, yet… nothing.
Republican incompetence has enabled Democrats to label the GOP as insensitive and as tools of special interests, such as the insurance industry. Democrats at this moment are clubbing Republicans over the head with this failure during the Senate confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Barrett.
And it’s working. The voting public doesn’t care about the intricacies of judicial philosophy on which the confirmation vote should hinge. They care about the people who need to be protected, including themselves, from the inability to find affordable health care.
One more reason that Trump possibly has blown his re-election chances.
