217 members of the House of Representatives voted for the AHCA otherwise known as Trumpdoesn'tcare today. Then 45 held a victory rally at the White House and a bunch of smug, mostly white men gleefully celebrated their victory. Assholes one and all.
For 7 years Republicans have bitched about Obamacare. Every bad thing that has happened over that time has been blamed on Obamacare. Hell,Republicans blamed Obamacare for the stunning defeat a few weeks ago when they didn't even bring their first draft for a vote.
For 7 years, it was easier to bitch about Obamacare that actually try and create a better program for the people Congress is sworn to serve. Social Security was an imperfect program when it was created; changes have been made over the years. Changes could have (and should have) been made to Obamacare. But you have members of Congress who are much too into serving themselves and the rich folks that help get them elected and they do not remember that there are millions of people in the US that are NOT wealthy white men
So to the 217 members of the House of Representatives...
