Trump Plays Hardball on RyanCare
Ever petulant Donaldo Trump has grabbed recalcitrant Congressional Republicans by the pussy. Either pass the massive tax cut for the rich wrapped in the cadaver of a healthcare bill or he'll leave Obamacare, what literate Americans know as the Affordable Care Act, in place.
The Cheeto Benito is going to town on intransigent Republicans. He first tried to steal their lunch money, threatening to come after holdouts when they next sought re-election. That didn't work so now he's telling them it's his way or the highway.
An interesting situation. If Trump can get Congressional Republicans to knuckle under on a widely unpopular bill such as Paul Ryan's healthcare nightmare, he'll know what it takes to roll them over when and as he chooses.
