Dark Days---DC Turmoil
At Powerline by John Hinderaker
It is tough to follow the news these days. The biggest disaster is in the Senate, where John McCain, despite having campaigned in favor of repealing Obamacare twice, turned his coat inside out and joined the Democrats in voting down repeal.
Now perhaps Obamacare will be left to suffer a lingering death, as premiums continue to rise and insurers exit the exchanges. Or perhaps President Trump will use his authority to reform the ACA administratively, which could result in significantly lower costs. Either way, the perception that that Republicans are unable to govern will gain currency, and rightly so.
