So Obamacare is failing with rates spiraling up out of control and choices narrowing for people that need good affordable healthcare.
And the Ryancare replacement plan failed to garner enough votes and has been questioned by the alt-right as not going further enough to change things for the better.
Blame the parliamentarian, blame each other, blame the Russians.
Between the two sides of the aisle, there aren’t enough centrists, and the parties won’t work together on a solution to this or anything else apparently — hence the utter catastrophic deadlock and lack of progress in Washington going on for years now!
The democrats passed Obamacare along party lines without a single Republican.
And now Ryancare similarly had not a single Democrat.
Resistance. Resistance. Resistance!
This is how polarized and ineffective our system of governing has become, when the two sides love their position and power more than they love the people of this great nation!
The Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, and Iranians didn’t have to fire a single shot…they just continued to shame our ineffectiveness with bogus deals and aggressive posturing, fed us boatloads of misinformation (“fake news”) to agitate our already divided country, and then they left us to split asunder under of our democracy’s own weight.
As the Republicans point fingers and the Democrats gloat — there is a great refrain of La La La Koosh Koosh going on — and the Superpower U.S. is looking not only asleep, but also fat, stupid and sprawled out pathetic with no where to go but up from here. ;-)
