Yep – Republican inner-circle hack, Lamar Alexander, is working with Chuck Schumer to stab us in the back.
Have we voters finally woken up to the reality that Republicans, save for a relative few, never really wanted to repeal and replace, or just repeal ObamaCare?
It’s not that they are enamored with the un-Affordable Care Act. I don’t think they are at all. They are just lazy, shiftless and lack any kind of courage or leadership.
These Senators have the luxury of being only one of 100. The President effectively stands alone. He can’t hide behind other members of the “august” body. He can’t make promises like our current Senate leadership and then blame the failure on some arcane procedural or parliamentarian rule.
He can’t take to the microphone to make some bold statement and then slink off to some back room where a double-deal is being hatched behind locked doors. If he tried, you could be sure it would be leaked almost immediately.
