re: Graham says Trump should reach out to dems.... gets booed - BobBoucher
I'm sure I'll get downvoted, but it makes sense for three reasons. 1, he's got a job to do. 2, it might bring some of the GOP to heel. Either get on the bus or it's leaving town. 3. A Bipartisan bill or left leaning bill with some GOP input will ultimately be better than what will happen if nothing ...

re: It's now Trump's baby: the new left wing narrative - BobBoucher
The story is that he campaigned on the promise to repeal and replace, and the voters gave him the presidency, house, and senate to get it done and they couldn't. Yet. So there's a legit (but not popular) argument to say they are right. So far. ...

re: So Dems are celebrating that they will continue to be hated & blamed for Obamacare? - BobBoucher
[quote]So Dems are celebrating that they will continue to be hated & blamed for Obamacare?[/quote] You can easily argue The GOP owns Obamacare now. It was failing, and repeal and replace was a core promise of the GOP platform, and the voters gave them the house, senate, and president to do it, an...

re: Crooked's tweet "Today was a victory for all Americans" - BobBoucher
[quote]Trump owned this bill. Trying to pin it on Ryan is bull shite.[/quote] Disagree. Trumps mistake was hitching his wagon to Ryan's bill when so many on the right didn't like it out of the gate. It's Ryan's bill, but Trump made a tactical error unless he's playing a longer term strategic ga...

re: Trump Calls WaPo - is full of BS - BobBoucher
On all fairness, the Dem PR campaign to save Obamacare as of late paid off. Public opinion went from majority repeal to majority keep. Once the rhetoric dies and people are reminded of their only choice and see the cost, they will bring up the convo again. ...
