The Senate version of Trumpcare has been unveiled. Joy-Ann Reid’s statements made it clear recently that Republicans are in a no-win situation whether or not they pass Trumpcare. It is a result of their dishonesty with all Americans and specifically their constituents.
GOP Trumpcare dilemma: Two trains barreling down
Joy-Ann Reid explains in detail the Trumpcare dilemma that Republicans find themselves in which they must take away something their constituents need.
“Here’s the reality,” Joy-Ann Reid said. “There are two trains that are barreling down the tracks at the same time toward each other. One of them is that every single Republican who’s in Washington elected today has to be able to go home to their state of the district and say I voted to destroy Obamacare. But they also have to be able to go home and say I did not take away you and your grandma on your mom’s health care. But what Paul Ryan fundamentally wants to do is take grandma’s health care. He is just as determined to take away grandma’s health care and take away health care from the poor to give a giant tax cut to the rich as Donald Trump is to create something terrific that will pay for everybody and leave nobody poor. These are two things that are in fundamental conflict with each other. And Republicans cannot say no to Trumpcare. They have to vote for it because they feel like that is their prime directive. But once they do, 2018! I know they feel good right now about Georgia 06. But all that says is that Republicans vote for Republicans. The problem is they’ve gotta sell this bill the way Democrats had to after 2010. And Democrats expanded health care and still lost.”
It is time for both those who support the Affordable Care Act and those who will be emaciated by Trumpcare which includes many who voted for Donald Trump, to protest in every fashion imaginable to ensure Republicans are made aware their future political aspirations are toast.
