Catastrophic Failure of Leadership: Incompetent and Dishonest Sen. Mitch McConnell Says Yellowbelly Republicans Are Giving Up on Health Bill

Sen. Mitch McConnell is an incompetent fool who needs to immediately resign as senate majority leader.
  The failure to repeal and replace ObamaCare  fails squarely on his shoulders along with other establishment Republicans who lied to the voters for over seven years.  These feckless cowards are a disgrace to the country!      

NY Times reports senate Republican leaders on Tuesday officially pulled the plug on the latest plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, scrapping a planned vote on the measure and effectively admitting defeat in the last-gasp drive to fulfill a core promise of President Trump and Republican lawmakers.
The decision came less than 24 hours after a pivotal Republican senator, Susan Collins of Maine, declared firm opposition to the repeal proposal, all but ensuring that Republican leaders would be short of the votes they needed.

“We haven’t given up on changing the American health care system,” Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, said. “We are not going to be able to do that this week, but it still lies ahead of us, and we haven’t given up on that.”

Mr. McConnell said Republicans would move on to their next big legislative priority: overhauling the tax code, a feat that has not been accomplished since 1986.

Democrats responded by calling for the resumption of bipartisan negotiations to stabilize health insurance markets under the Affordable Care Act. Republican leaders had squelched those talks as the latest repeal plan gained steam, hoping to present senators a single, take-it-or-leave-it decision on the legislation, written by Senators Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

  1. Well said. The Repubs, no matter when they've been the Majority, will always act as the Minority party.
