After seven years of railing against Obamacare and 65 meaningless votes to repeal it, Republicans finally had their Dealmaker-in-Chief at the helm. Everything had fallen into place for them to slay their dragon and enact their number one priority.
Everything, that is except for decent ideas and the political will to follow through with their inhumane plot to rob healthcare from 24 million people.
Republicans’ signature legislation, as well as their top campaign promise, has just blown up in their faces. This is outstanding news for our entire republic, and Twitter has been documenting the beautiful debacle brilliantly.

I have never met a successful person that was a quitter. Successful people never, ever, give up!
