Senate Republicans are wasting time that they don’t have, trying to cobble together just one more attempt at Obamacare repeal before their window slams shut at the end of the month. This has supposedly been happening with popular vote loser Donald Trump’s encouragement. Looks like maybe he got bored with that one.

Republicans, sorry, but I've been hearing about Repeal & Replace for 7 years, didn't happen! Even worse, the Senate Filibuster Rule will….

…never allow the Republicans to pass even great legislation. 8 Dems control – will rarely get 60 (vs. 51) votes. It is a Repub Death Wish!

Republicans must start the Tax Reform/Tax Cut legislation ASAP. Don't wait until the end of September. Needed now more than ever. Hurry!

That would the be the tax cut legislation that so far Trump has done nothing to help with, except have a few rallies in which he’s attacked Republicans. But he has spoken. Republicans now have until the end of the month, in which they have something like 13 working days, to pass a plan. 

That’ll happen. But if it means they finally give up on Obamacare repeal? Knock yourself out, guys.
