If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2017
"You break it, you bought it." Of course, announcing loudly that you are about to break it isn't usually part of this scenario, but nobody ever said he was very bright.
I mean, seriously: this is not the way things get done:
“I think his attitude is this, and his attitude is pretty simple,” [Budget Director Mick] Mulvaney said. “What he’s saying is, look, if Obamacare is hurting people — and it is — then why shouldn’t it hurt insurance companies and more importantly perhaps for this discussion, members of Congress?”Because the only time government should hurt people is when they are our enemies?
And on that note:
Don't give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace...and go to 51 votes (nuke option), get Cross State Lines & more.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2017
He's still on about the filibuster, apparently unaware that the "skinny repeal" failed by 1 vote (it needed at least 50, with Pence the tie-breaker), so "going to 51" has already been tried.
It failed. So did Trump.
Maybe that's what's bothering him.
