He Got A Better Reception At "Hamilton"
Chalk up another epic flop by this hapless administration of traitors and fools: The briefly anticipated resurrection of the dead "American Health Care Act" is now dead itself.
"Hopes of reviving the Republicans' failed healthcare plan surged briefly on Tuesday when Vice President Mike Pence came to Capitol Hill in an attempt to forge a new compromise that could somehow pass the House of Representatives," The Guardian reported dryly. "But the late-night talks between Pence and members of competing factions of the House Republican caucus stalled, and no deal was reached."
Gee, what happened? We thought Mr. Gay-Hating Hoosier was supposed to be best buddies with the GOP caucus — especially since he'd served in the House before he went on to become Governor of Indiana. So why wasn't he able to broker a deal with his old pals? Lame!
Apparently Pence's pre-existing condition as a Republican member of Congress had no impact — so add this latest fiasco to the growing list of Trumpster fails: Muslim bans, unpaid-for border walls and booted National Security Advisers. We cats HISS and PURR at the same time.
P.S.: Here's a thought... Maybe Pence had to woo some female members of the Republican caucus over dinner last night, and his wife wasn't available to chaperone?
