56. Irrelevant. And GOP voters do NOT want this. But their

congressmen and senators for the most part do not represent them. They represent extremist wealthy donors who think everyone else is sponging off them and want to put a stop to it.

Both the Kochs, and the hundreds of metamillionaires and billionaires alllied with them, as well as Robert Mercer, closest billionaire wingnut to Rump, want to get The People off their backs. Those who can't pay all their own pay are unworthy sponges and should be left to find a way on their own.

While strong conservatives have always opposed safety net programs like Social Security, many conservatives believes some were appropriate, and most believed in the need for compulsory public education. No more. The Republican Party has overall become far more extreme. The goal of these people who've packed Congress with their people is to completely destroy ALL social programs, every one, and change the Constitution to outlaw compulsory taxation to pay for such things, including public schooling.

Those who vote for these people don't know this. Fox never clued them in. BUT, we're almost to the point where they can't miss it. The reason why Ryan wants to spread the losses out over several years while propagandists continue to convince people the programs were doomed to fail anyway.
