Trump has suddenly realized that being president is hard. Who knew?
Well everybody actually that’s rather the point
Still the point he was referring to was healthcare, and how the house and senate still haven’t come up with a replacement or can even agree on a basic idea. Some don’t want to spend a lot of money, some don’t want to interfere with the market, some are generally clueless, and it’s all basically a mess. And Trump is just realizing that yes, it is in fact a hard thing, a difficult thing, to be president and deal with healthcare. Kind of why Obamacare is actually a really good thing that people (suddenly, of course) have decided is actually pretty great.
So what’s the plan now? Repeal-and-delay, better known as ‘Republicans have no plan because they bitched for too long, and now they’re gonna avoid the question entirely’. For about three months.
The senate bill in question probably won’t pass, but if it does it’ll give some breathing room for the house and congress to come up with some sort of plan and not a [placeholder]. It’ll also piss of their base, 20 million people suddenly without healthcare, pretty much every liberal period, and galvanize the Democrats. So it also might not pass. Which will still piss of their base and leave Republicans back at square one.
Isn’t Politics fun?
