Drudge Put it Perfectly: Congressional Republicans Flail and Fail

Incompetence hinders party from accomplishing Trump’s agenda

On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on.

This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program.

Republicans better commit to campaign promises. Find a way to get it done. If they don't, their terms will be short. We don't need the Democrats ruling again anytime soon, if ever. They got us into all the mess we're in today.

The problem they're having is that they're still trying to run a business they know absolutely nothing about.

They need to realize their own incompetence and hand the business back to whom knows how to run it; Doctors, Hospitals, Health Insurance companies and their patients!

Some things are not taught in Law School. This is one of them.

I think Republicans are starting to realize that the vast majority of Americans, and even Trump supporters think health care for all is a pretty good idea. They just can't figure out how to make sure Obama gets no credit for it. It would be good if the politicians focused their efforts on fixing the things that need to be fixed and forget about this whole repeal sham.
