GOP Rep Says Trump Shares Blame for Repeal Failure
He’s full of shit like a Christmas goose…..the GOP has control of congress, it’s their fault, for being the wimps they are. A president can’t make laws.
“The president never laid out his core principles and didn’t sell them to the American people,” Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) told reporters.
“[He] outsourced the whole issue to Congress,” Dent, chairman of the moderate “Tuesday Group,” said.
Well naturally he did it, as it’s your job, as a member of congress to pass legislation for his signature.
On the other end of the GOP spectrum, conservative Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to “leave his position” and “let somebody new… bold… and conservative take the reins.”
“How is [McConnell] going to get the job done on the rest of President Trump’s agenda?” Brooks asked.
Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) compared the current state of Congress to the “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” – a Gordon Lightfoot song about a boat disaster in the Great Lakes.
Trump tweeted his dismay at the bill’s failure, calling out the 48 Democrats and three Republicans who voted against the measure.
