    Can Republicans say YES?

    You can't make this stuff up. Lost track of how many times the Republicans voted NO in the last 8 years on Affordable Care Act. Now they have the White House and both houses of congress and can't find a way to vote YES. Unbelievable.

    The republican congress is too divided to say yes.  I don't think Trump realized until now, the make up of the republican congress.  He had no idea that the Freedom Caucus came from the Tea Party and they are in opposition to the hard line republican congressmen. 

    When it comes to passing health care, it's not America first. It's Trump and Ryan first.  They are more concerned about getting their bill passed, than the well being of the people. Ever since Obama care passed, we have heard republicans saying, "it is a train wreck, a disaster, it's killing jobs, it's in death spiral, it's over 2,000 pages long."

    They have also said for eight years, they have a better plan. Many candidates said that on their first day in office, they were going to tear Obama Care to shreds.  Well now it comes down to where the rubber meets the road.  It's turning out that their plan was nothing more than smoke and mirrors.  Trump himself said that he didn't realize how complex health care is.

    Now Trump wants to get it passed, so that he still looks like the good guy and meets his promises, regardless if it works or not.  They are trying to pass it as a budget item, so that it won't be subject to filibuster by the senate. So now they are just cobbling something together to just get it passed, so that Trump can move on to his next promise, tax reform. He has created a manufactured pressure with an arbitrary deadline.

      All republicans have to do to improve ObamaCare is remove the obstructions they attached to it in the first place.

    These house Republicans, you know, the ones that can't get out of their own way and are going to mess up the wet dream that Trump has handed them... where they only have to VOTE and PASS any... ANY type of Repeal and Replace this Friday... are actually...

    Wait for it... you won't believe it...

    Not vote on it...

    And then go on vacation for two weeks!!!

    Hahahahhahhahhaha.... OMG!!!
    And you thought the Democrats were dumb!
    I mean, how D U M B can a group of politicians be!

    Every single Republican in the house today is there because the voters put them in there to get rid of Obamacare... NOW!!!

    And these brain dead twits don't get it... they still want to play politics and pull each other's pec... well u know.

    So what does Trump do???

    People in the media ask him:
    Media - "Mr. President, if they don't pass it today will you still work on it?"
    Trump -"Nope... we are moving on to the rest of my Agenda... America's agenda."
    Media - "No? ... Mr. President, don't you mean... well uh, its Congress who decides..."
    Trump- "Nope... I'm done with those idiots, I told them to vote now and get it done... now its on to Tax reform, then a new China Trade agreement, then..."
    Media- "But... Mr. President, what if the Republicans don't want to finish with the ACA now..."
    Trump- "Screw them, let those idiots tell the voters why they couldn't get it done... I'll be happy to tell the voters what dumb asses they are for holding up the change I promised..."

    Really... how DUMB can these politicians BE!?!? 
    These Republicans think the voters who supported Trump are going to support them??? 
    What does Congress have... a 5% approval rating? 
    They are proving him right, that the Swamp needs to be drained, that CONGRESS needs to be drained... maybe removed all together! 
    These politicians think they are going to have ANY leverage on Trump after they muff this up???

    Its so funny, Trump will destroy them, the American voters will despise them, they won't know what hit them... it won't be Trump that pays the price, it will be Congress... the whole lot of them, Republican and Democrat alike... they are all a bunch of flaming a----les.
