The tepidly named Better Care Reconciliation Act that Republicans hope to replace the current ACA with is having a tough time, if you believe the news. The most dire bit of news for the new healthcare bill is that Republicans aren’t coalescing around it — indeed, some prominent GOPers are standing in the way.
83-year-old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley tried to tweet his shame about the Republicans’ failure (so far) to deliver on the healthcare promise to the GOP constituency. Grassley and Siri, or whomever he’s dictating his tweets to, sounded unhinged and spelling-challenged in issuing what seemed like a warning to fellow Republicans that their majority status could be jeopardized by a healthcare failure. But it’s not totally clear that’s what Grassley meant because he says “WE WONT BE ASHAMED WE WILL GO FROM MAJORITY TO MINORITY” — a move that presumably wouldn’t trigger an abundance of pride, shame’s opposite.
52 Republicazn senators shld be ashamed that we have not passed health reform by now WE WONT BE ASHAMED WE WILL GO FROM MAJORITY TO MINORITY
