GOP So Divided Over How To Repeal Obamacare That They Might Not End Up Doing It At All!


Republicans could actually screw this up, and they have Ted Cruz to “thank.” Extreme right-wing conservatives like Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah are insisting they won’t vote for any repeal bill unless it allow insurers to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions and sell everyone junk insurance that doesn’t actually cover anything.


Meanwhile, almost all other Senate Republicans find such a proposal abhorrent, and say they won’t vote for any bill that allows insurance companies to do that.


Cruz’s proposal is so heartless that even very conservative Republicans like Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Jerry Moran of Kansas are strongly opposed to it.


The best part is, as long as most Republicans stay opposed to Cruz’s demand, then Trumpcare cannot pass the Senate. This is because there is no way that Cruz and his small band of extreme right-wing Senators will back down from their outrageous demand, and so Republicans will just be at an impasse.

Let’s keep the pressure on and make sure Senate Republicans remain hopelessly divided.
