The resistance taking place in town halls across America has sent a loud and clear message that Republicans should tread carefully in their pursuit to upend the healthcare system. The leaked plans so far show the GOP is fumbling around for a better option, and they are aiming to overhaul medicaid in their continuing war on the poor. Trump weighed in on the debate in his remarks to the National Governors Association saying,
“Let it be a disaster, because we can blame that on the Dems that are in our room — and we can blame that on the Democrats and President Obama.” (politico)
This is why people hate politics. Trump flat out admitted he is playing politics with peoples lives. Instead of working to keep repairing the American healthcare system, he is content to watch it burn so he can blame Obama. The problem for this argument is that Republicans have complete control, therefore they own the results of their actions or inaction.
