With Friends Like These…

Repeal and Replace

“Alas, Democrats have proved to love Obamacare more than Republicans, as a body, detest it … The GOP swore in blood to get rid of Obamacare. It starts to look as if a number of the oath-takers had their fingers crossed behind their backs.” (And All For The Want Of A Spine)

The GOP (Gutless Old Party) is reneging on its vows faster than a serial bigamist at a lonely hearts club.  Led by ineffectual swamp rats Ryan and McConnell, the Congressional Republicans are proving to be the biggest bust since the introduction of New Coke.

PlanIt is inexcusable for the GOP, which has majorities in Congress, a president in the White House, and widespread officeholders in the states, to fail on delivering on its most prominent and recurring promises from the past seven years. (7 Years of Promising Obamacare Repeal Leaves Republicans Just 1 Option)

These Republicans weren’t sent to the Swamp to cool their derrieres. It might behoove them therefore, especially the distaff donkeys disguised as pachyderms, to stop hosing water over their ample rear ends long enough to remember just why the American electorate put them in charge in the first place:

“Well, it has to be Murkowski and Collins. Look, it has to be Murkowski and Collins and maybe the other Republican woman in there … You know, I cringe every time these people say, ‘our Democratic friends.’ Chuck Schumer, if he is your friend, it’s a problem. I mean, it shouldn’t be, but we know it is. Does Mitch know that Murkowski, Capito, and Collins have already said that they’re not gonna vote for this? … Well, I know it was in the news, but that kills it, three female senators kills the repeal.”  (GOP Babes Kill Repeal-Only Vote)

As a public service, herewith are listed the GOP legislators who have spent more time in the Swamp with less to show for it than Pogo the Possum:
