Done. This attempt to pass a replacement healthcare bill to replace ObamaCare? Never voted upon because it would not pass.
So you sit there and ponder upon this.
For seven lousy years, you had to hear GOP bigwigs out of DC....from McCain to Ryan and at least 150 Republicans who'd appear on Sunday chatter shows....gushing over how they'd have a better idea and fix the terrible dilemma that ObamaCare laid upon the nation.
It was a farce...a hoax....a joke....and never worth discussion.
This is part of the problem of the Republican Party now. They have so much hype and theatrics built into their operation....that you can't tell where fake chatter starts and ends.
What should you expect now?
1. Ryan is practically worthless on leadership, and some challenge will come up to replace him. Frankly, if I were him....I'd leave the chairman job, and move to some other occupation after the election in 2018.
2. Democrats shouldn't say much of a happy note. ObamaCare is losing participants every year. It's built to have a very limited life. By the GOP screwing this up....it's laid out a very short string of survival....maybe four to six years before various states, and a large number of the public are complaining bitterly. Single-payer is the only method left.
3. If the financial bill comes up and faces the same type of GOP division....then you can assume that the big-plus-up that would have occurred in November 2018's election for more Republicans....will never occur. In fact, you might be able to assume that 25 House seats will shift over to the Democrats, with two or three Senate seats also going to them.
4. For Trump? New reality.....the GOP is fractured and unable to be of any benefit. He might as well assume this for the remaining three years, and just make the best out of a marginal situation.
