Oh deary deary deary dear. I was watching the Trumpcare falboat set sail Friday afternoon, and idly wondered how it was playing in the land of the Freep.
Wonder no more.
Conservative Republicans are Today’s Biggest Losers

The Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—finally came up for a final vote in the House. First put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan in 2009, it offered few surprises to Republicans. And the effort itself was very familiar, as Republicans had voted over 60 times to repeal Obamacare since its passage eight years ago. Yet, when the time came to exercise the prerogative of the majority and finally repeal and replace President Obama’s deeply flawed social program, Republicans came up short.
Over the past two weeks, moderate Republicans argued that they could not vote for a plan that did not keep certain fail-safe protections for the elderly in place. Conservative Republicans—many in the so-called “Freedom Caucus”—complained that Ryan’s plan kept popular portions of Obamacare on the books. They wanted a complete repeal, and many would accept nothing less. In the end, no-one got their wish. As Speaker Ryan admitted this afternoon, “we are going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” This, in part, because the Trump Administration refuses to have its agenda held hostage. It is sidelining healthcare and moving forward with tax reform.
Democrats are celebrating Republican missteps. And the collective finger-pointing within the Republican establishment has already begun in earnest. An early contender for sacrificial lamb is Speaker Ryan.
You’re completely full of shit!
At least I thought it was…
RyanCare did NOT bring back the medical system BEFORE obamacare.
We are not stupid.
The jury’s still out on that one…
Stupid people did not elect President Trump.
A WHOLE BUNCH of stupid people elected him.
We know when people like Ryan are lying, and he’s ALWAYS been a liar and a fucking weasel!
The Conservative Cause are HEROS for standing up to Paul Ryan, a stance that allowed time for millions of us to raise our voices and ultimately convince WAY more Congressmen to oppose this than just the Conservative Caucus.
I STRONGLY suggest you go pimp your pathetic piece of shit blog at a more appropriate site, like therightscoop.com, where they’ll lap your bullshit up like it was chocolate sauce!
