Senate is trying to get two-for-one with tax bill
The Senate is again in the process of trying to claim victory by gutting the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) by attaching it to the tax overhaul bill.
I guess it would give great satisfaction to the Trump/conservative base and claim a major victory before the 2018 midterm election. It is hard for me to understand what kind of thinking goes into the satisfaction of seeing millions of people with no health care.
Many in this Trump base are seniors who love their government-sponsored Medicare and have received much more than they have ever contributed. Could it be that because it has been associated with the name Obama it must be erased? Or, maybe it is just the smug satisfaction of having something that others don’t have.
