Vote today – Healthcare Reform, Trump is disgusted with Congress

“Today members of Congress will cast their votes for or against the House-proposed Obamacare overhaul legislation. The Paul Ryan bill is a confusing, contradictory thing, largely beholden to the pharmaceutical industry that has donated so generously to his political career. (These same large annual donations apply to other members of the current GOP leadership team in the House and Senate as well.) The vote will be close and the ordeal has given Mr. Trump his first real taste of the deep-rooted, self-serving dysfunction that is Washington D.C.”
The New York times indicated that Mr. Trump’s son-and-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, wanted the President to back away from the Ryan Healthcare Reform bill proposal altogether soon after it was announced. Kushner knew it was a mess, knew it did too little while pitting conservative Republicans against moderates, and would stall the Trump agenda.
It appears Mr. Kushner was right about the Healthcare Reform Bill
Trump is left today trying to push an 11th-hour success for what is, an already less-than-successful bit of Healthcare Reform bill legislation that will get further trampled when it is shipped off to the Senate side. Even if he pulls off this messy partial political victory in the House, it has left a very sour taste in his mouth.
Donald Trump is one who is willing to forgive, but he never forgets. He is learning a great deal about how things don’t work in D.C. Paul Ryan is a big reason for this dysfunction. Ryan appears to be doing what some very deep pockets sent him back to D.C. to do: Stall the Trump agenda until 2020 when they can be rid of him.
