On Tuesday, after the failure of the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Donald Trump said:
“At some point there will be a repeal and replace, but we’ll see whether or not that point is now or will it be shortly thereafter,” he said at the White House. “But we are disappointed in certain so-called Republicans.”
Even though he may not recognize it, Trump’s comment represents a stern rebuke of the high degree of partisanship in Washington. According to Trump—and, let’s be honest, Democrats too—you can’t be a real member of your party, Republican or Democrat, if you don’t mindlessly tow the party line.
This is not normal.
At what point does serving in the best interests of the American people come back to the halls of congress? If you really want to make America great again, do that.
Just do that.
It’s Thursday, the 28th of September, 2017.
