The failure to repeal/replace Obumblecare lies directly at the feet of RINO Paul Ryan (shown left).
President Trump trusted him – a mistake – to come up a healthcare fix. Ryan and his insurance company buddies came up with a bill behind closed doors that was a “take it or leave it” scenario, and attempted to ram it through – similar to the Demwit debacle in 2008.
But, the Freedom Caucus – and others – balked, and the votes to pass were not there.
Questions for Ryan – what was the all-fired hurry, why the secrecy creating the bill and why were conservatives denied a place at the bill-crafting table?
And now there’s an attempt to come up with critically needed tax reform, which must originate in the House. Gonna be even harder for that since there were many sources of funding that were addressed in the withdrawn Obumblecare fix(?). Ryan’s speaker-ship was severely damaged with his healthcare fiasco. If he fails with tax reform, he’s toast as Speaker.
