Where The Senate Health Care Defeat Leaves Trump, GOP
http://www.npr.org/2017/07/18/537820847/...-trump-gop

From the article:
Quote:The defeat of the GOP Senate health care bill is major blow to all Republicans involved.

President Trump, whose approval rating stands lower than any recent president this early in his term, is now staring at an agenda imperiled. Despite his boasts, he has achieved little of significance through Congress. That failure is compounded by the fact that his party controls both chambers.

Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, hailed for all of his senatorial maneuverability, does not appear so enviable Tuesday morning. He showed he could gum up the system and manipulate the rules to deny a president of a different party, but he has not showed the ability to control his caucus in order to govern — the way past great Senate leaders have.

...

Good news! Once again, the repubs shoot themselves in the foot. Clap

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.
