GOP RALLIES BEHIND IDIOTIC BILL

Republicans are about to do something very stupid. Using bribery, threats and cajolery, they intend to pass a catastrophically unpopular bill on a party-line vote.

GOP: Obamacare is unpopular, so let's pass a new health care bill that's even MORE unpopular.

Normal Person: Why would you do that?

GOP: No, you don't understand. Obamacare is totally imploding, so if we pass this bill now, all its problems will be blamed on us!

Republicans would be better off doing nothing. They can survive the ridicule for running against Obamacare through four election cycles and then not repealing it. They cannot survive a bill that does nothing to fix the actual problems with Obamacare.

The only explanation for the GOP doing something so stupid and unpopular is that it's all about tax cuts.

Why can't we get it through their heads that we didn't elect Trump to cut taxes? Forty-five percent of people don't pay any federal income tax -- and they voted for Trump! Taxes on high earners (or "Hillary voters") are at a historic low.

Here's a somewhat more important issue I'd like to submit for Republicans' consideration: PEOPLE CAN'T BUY HEALTH INSURANCE THEY WANT, CAN'T SEE THE DOCTORS THEY WANT AND CAN'T AFFORD THEIR PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIBLES.

How about allowing people the option of buying insurance that doesn't cover sex change operations, gambling addictions, psychotherapy, liver transplants for illegal aliens and so on?

Instead of squandering this moment, Trump the businessman should seize it to trumpet the free market. This is a golden opportunity to give a speech explaining why, contrary to everything your professors told you, communism doesn't work. To paraphrase Talleyrand, what Republicans are doing with Obamacare is worse than a crime; it's a mistake.

They weren't elected to do nothing. Funny how many people are saying they should do nothing now that they're in office.

I hope we aren't still watching the GOP campaign against Obama 30 years from now.

Exactly.
This is what happens when you define yourself more by who or what you oppose than specific goals that drive a legislative agenda. It is a fundamentally negative approach to governing and it can't succeed in the long run.
