Makes sense to me

Good read below.  I am not savvy enough to have actually predicted it, but after watching Lincoln (2012),  it was more or less what I was expecting.  If you haven’t seen this wonderful movie, I highly recommend you do.

Obamacare by Terrell

From Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News and author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution —

Exactly two weeks ago, this author predicted the defeat of the American Health Care Act — and explained that it was a step towards the final, actual deal that will repeal and replace Obamacare.

President Donald Trump faces three irreconcilable factions: the GOP establishment, conservatives, and Democrats. He must bring them together — to “deliver the goods,” a key rule in The Art of the Deal. But first he must show them “the downside” — and convince them they will fail on their own.

The most difficult faction to deal with is the Republican establishment — not because they are politically strong, but because on policy issues like health care, they are convinced that they have all the answers and that Trump just does not understand.

    House Democrats celebrate the GOP’s failure on health care bill

    House Democrats called the failure of their Republican colleagues to scrap Obamacare is a “victory for the American people.”

    “Today is a great day for our country,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. “What happened on the floor is a victory for the American people.”

    Not a single member of the Democratic caucus planned to support the bill.
