Trumpcare Vote Today: Lose-Lose for GOP
Despite opposition from all sectors of American life, massive unpopularity, opposition by doctors, liberals, conservatives, budget watchdogs, and anyone with two neurons to rub together, Trumpcare is going up for a vote today. From TPM:
“What is happening today is a lose-lose situation for the Republicans,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said of the legislation during a press conference with party leadership.
“It’s a lose for the American people, that’s for sure,” she continued. “But the people who vote for this will have this vote tattooed to their foreheads as they go forward.”
House Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley (D-NY) added: “The adage, ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t’? They may feel damned if they don’t. We believe they’ll be even more damned if they do.”
