A month ago, there was a lot of optimism that the Senate process would go better for conservatives than the House process initially had. They were given a seat at the negotiating table, with leadership inviting both Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas to participate in the Senate’s health care “working group.” But with leaders seeking to assuage concerns from all sides of the GOP, conservatives are facing potential policy blows.
But now, it is clear, Trump is just a chump. Not only is he under investigation by the FBI for having cheated with Russia to effect the results of the U.S. election, he has also shown that he really doesn’t care about the healthcare of America, he cares more about keeping himself and and his family out of jail.
So hats off to Republican members of Congress, cause you won ‘power’ without really having any.
