Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has had a rough couple of weeks trying and failing to repeal and replace Obamacare. However, GOP legislators, with pressure from President Trump, have vowed to come back and reform healthcare.
In the meantime, McConnell tried to put a positive spin on a tenuous situation on Saturday during an interview with local radio station WFPL. McConnell said:
“I choose not to dwell on situations where we come up a little bit short.”
Then he dropped the hammer:
“Even on the night when we came up one vote short of our dream to repeal and replace Obamacare, here’s the first thing I thought about: feel better, Hillary Clinton could be president.”
Mitch McConnell has a lot of faults, but this time he totally nailed it. Republicans can get so caught up in what they haven’t been doing that they forget- conservatives have done A LOT, and no matter what, it’s a heck of a lot better than it would be if Hillary Clinton had won.
The GOP is the best hope we got for getting health reform right- with President Trump steering the party, we have a lot of reasons to hope our other political representatives will get this right!
