Quote of the Day
“So, we just pulled it.”
-- Pres. Donald Trump to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa on the decision by Trump and the GOP to pull their plan (which pleased no one) to replace Obamacare. So it was a good day. Of course, Trump being Trump, he blamed the minority Democrats for not backing a proposal that no one liked (and few had seen in its most recent iteration), rather than majority Republicans with their 44-vote advantage, who could've passed the bill without a Democrat if the bill had been worth passing. But it wasn't. To anyone. And now my friends continue to have health care coverage. A good day.
I can't believe golfing every weekend & holding goofy campaign rallies in blue districts didn't lock this terrible repeal vote up for Trump.— John Dingell (@JohnDingell) March 24, 2017
