No Repeal of Obamacare….
No Tax Cut….
Conservative ‘true believers ‘ banned from the White House?
Sure Donald Trump HAS the support of most Republicans….
But even THAT is dropping….
But hardcore rightwingnuts got in bed with Donald Trump because they believed he would DO what THEY wanted….
Things haven’t turned out that way…..
Could the Republicans be on the way to running a batch of crazies like Roy Moore?…Could those same rightwingnuts be SO pissed at their parties inactions that they stay home…or put guys in place could turn out to be strident that even in Red state’s they lose?…..WOULD THIS SPLIT THE GRAND OLE PARTY creating a whole for Democrats to walk thru?
Could Donald Trump and the crazies be the best thing that Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer could have helping him get Mitch McConnell’s second job?
Republican leaders are facing a conservative backlash if their latest effort to repeal parts of ObamaCare this week fails — or even if it passes.
GOP base voters are frustrated with the lack of accomplishments, and their frustration is on full display in the Alabama Republican primary runoff, where former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has a substantial lead in the polls over incumbent Sen. Luther Strange.
Conservative activists say the latest GOP health-care bill sponsored by Sens. Bill Cassidy (La.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) falls short of the promise to repeal ObamaCare “root and branch,” but it’s better than nothing.
If that fails this week, as expected, Republican primary voters will have even less confidence in the GOP establishment — a rift that could spell trouble for incumbents in next year’s primaries.
“The backlash for the members of Congress more than the president could be significant if they truly can’t get their ducks in a row and get repeal accomplished,” said Chip Roy, former chief of staff to Sen. Ted Cruz(R-Texas), warning of danger for Republicans up for reelection next year.
“They would be in a much stronger position if they had done what they said what they were going to do and should have done, which was repeal it at a date certain and then have a series of discussions and debate about how to reform health care,” he said.
“We’re now staring at a much messier 2018 if Republicans continue to fail to get the job done,” he said.
Republican strategists and conservative activists predict that combined with Moore’s projected victory over Strange, an ObamaCare defeat will embolden conservative challengers to take on Senate and House GOP incumbents…..Share on Facebook
