I can only think of the phrase “it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, its how you play the game” when I think about the embarrassing spectacle of the United States House of Representatives and Trump administration’s passage of their health care act.
The bill is opposed by all the stakeholders, including doctors, insurers, hospitals and the public. The bill breaks every campaign promise related to health care. Its passage was rushed through without a single hearing, or waiting for the analysis of the costs of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office, because we know that will report that millions of people will lose their health insurance.
Why replace a system that it functioning, with the new bill, which basically lets the states be the ones to deny health care, and takes away health insurance from millions? The only two reasons I can determine are (1) Obama care gives the Democrats and President Obama credit for what they accomplished and (2) Trump promised to replace it with something better. This replacement is far, far worse.
What the Republicans said is “it doesn’t matter how you play the game, it only matters if you win.”
