GOP Is Going To Pull A Reagan On Healthcare… I'll Explain
As more and more Republicans come out against the Senate GOP's so-called healthcare bill, is it even going to pass?
As the Senate Republicans move to delay a vote on their murderous healthcare bill, the White House says it's optimistic that changes will be made.
But will those be real changes?
Or just cosmetic changes designed to push the savagery so far into the future that American's won't realize what hit them until decades from now?
In the face of growing dissent in their own ranks, Senate Republicans yesterday delayed a vote on their tax cut for the rich disguised as a healthcare plan until after the July 4 recess.
Despite the setback, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Trump was still "optimistic" about his healthcare agenda as a whole:
"We're continuing to be optimistic. The president is committed. And he said, and all the members of the administration have said repeatedly, to repealing and replacing Obamacare, working with the Senate, working with the House, making sure we get the best bill. For us, it's never been about the timeline, but about getting the best piece of legislation that helps the most Americans."
Right. So what happens now?
The AP is reporting that right-wing donors are threatening to "close the piggy bank" unless they see progress on healthcare (aka their tax cuts).
Is this kind of pressure from the oligarchs enough to make this bill pass?
And are Trump and the Republicans are going to pull a Reagan on this and push the changes far into the future?
