TrumpCare Gets the Hook
The writing was on the wall when Republican House leader Paul Ryan popped into the White House this morning. He was there to tell Trump that his healthcare bill was going to defeat if it was put to a vote as the Cheeto Benito angrily demanded last night.
Then, with the Capital building literally besieged by cameras and reporters Ryan somehow managed to sneak in undetected. Once he was safely in the House, the American Health Care Act was given the hook. There would be no vote.
What happens next? Anybody's guess. However it's a swift kick in the nuts for the Great Orange Bloat, one he'll have the weekend to fume over. No dumping Obamacare, no giant tax cut for the 0.01%.
Let the tweeting begin.
