Mission Accomplished ... now go run and hide

Have you even seen anyone go out of their way to throw a party celebrating a supposed win, only to run and hide from their constituents and the media, it's flat out hilarious how Republicans are hiding from their train wreck of a healthcare bill.

It's safe to say the RNC did some internal polling after their little celebration party, and it's also safe to say what the results were.

1. I hope they ALL get their asses handed to them

Get out the torches and pitchforks, folks! And the tar and feathers.

4. The party our Orange Marie Antoinette threw at the White House is about as tone deaf as one can get

Trump is so used to creating an illusion of accomplishment through confusion and chaos then moving on before people realize nothing was accomplished, that he actually believes people will forget they are sick and can't afford to pay for healthcare. This is one time his con game will fall short.

2. its also safe to say, they don't work for us! They work for the Billionaire club. Their job is to

serve the Billionaire club at our expense. They don't give a rat's ass what we think!

3. Wait and see what happens when the CBO scores come out

Hope it happens while they are still on break. They will have to hide until it's time to go back to DC.

7. Not one of the 217 RepubliCONs who voted for it would explain it on TV to MSNBC. Not 1.

8. Leading Democrats need to hold Town Halls in all their districts to EXPLAIN it. See NY19


I think a prominent Democrat in District NY19 suggested this.

Was a DU thread or two about it. Could a kind member post a link if they have one?

9. I've come to the conclusion that this is all an elaborate Kabuki theater designed to make Dolt 45*

and Lyin' Ryan look to their base like they did something. They had that big, showy, beer party on the White House lawn to pat each other on the back and to make the Fox-PAC bots and other hate wing media swoon. They knew full well that it would be DOA in the Senate. McConnell is probably in on it too because he needs to keep his wife employed and it might somehow damage President Obama in some way. They know they can't really do anything remotely like that piece of shit that passed the House or else they're all out in 2018.

It's just one big show for the baggers and Drumpfcultists because they know this bill can't possibly pass the Senate and the Senate bill will be torpedoed by the "Freedom" Caucus, i.e. Big Fat Selfish, Greedy Babies.

10. Everything Trump does ... is to make it look like he did something.

His Sanctuary Cities Executive Order is a perfect example, the White House counsel knew damn well it was dead on arrival, but he issued it anyway just so he could blame his failure on a judge and make his simplemind base thing he actually did something. His entire life is one big con game.

11. Yes, just like his Religious Restoration executive order.

Whole bunch of Jesus words for fundies that will accomplish absolutely nothing. ACLU is ignoring it as unworthy of a challenge in court.
