Instead of coming up with policies that could pass the House and Senate with bipartisan support, the White House and the Senate Majority Leader are pointing fingers and placing blame for their collective failure to repeal Obamacare. Trump is to blame because he never led on health care. The White House had no plan, and Trump as a person has zero credibility or influence with Senators. The President is worthless when it comes to legislating.
McConnell is to blame because he never really wanted to mess with health care in the first place, so he tried to jam one of the worst pieces of legislation that has been written in decades through the Senate in a rushed and secret process. It was a bad bill with terrible planning and horrid execution. That is all on Mitch McConnell.
It is a sign of how wrong things are going that less than seven months into total control of the Legislative and Executive Branches, Republicans are already at each other’s throats.
If the American people want a functioning government again, they are going to have to elect Democrats, because Republicans are locked in a civil war of complete self-destruction.
