Number One Campaign Promise Bites the Dust.
Vote Canceled. Bill Pulled.
Betrayed by Extreme Far Right Conservatives.
Of course all Democrats would vote against it. Not enough Republicans would vote for it. Trump tried to satisfy the far right with a few changes to it, then lost votes of moderates. Sweet spot could not be reached. Therefore the American Health Care Act has been abandoned. Dead on arrival.
Republicans control Congress – House and Senate, and hold The White House, yet they still fail because they continue to be divided. Those who demand all or nothing, and those who are willing to make deals. So it appears the all or nothing conservatives (who hesitate referring to themselves as Republicans) maintain controlling interest by standing in the way.
ObamaCare – Affordable Care Act – stands as is.
