Dear GOP Senators,
You do realize that all these health-care theatrics have NOTHING to do with what might be good for the American people and EVERYTHING to do with obliterating any fond memories they might still have of Barack Obama.
Because if Obamacare were called "Trumpcare", the current resident of the White House would be touting it as the greatest health care system ever:
"Historic. Believe me. And I know health care better than anybody because...well...maybe I know some people who actually use it. Anyway, I've heard many people say...it's tremendous. Everybody knows. A lot of people say so..."
It is slowly dawning on me that the future of this planet is entirely dependent on the outcome of a phantasmagorical popularity contest being conducted entirely within the none-too-stable mind of a raving lunatic.
And, as if that weren't enough, he's orange.
This is the stuff of nightmares.
What I really don't get is why fifty (okay, 48) apparently sane people - elected with the full faith of their constituencies - should be going along with it.
You must have your reasons. (I'm not sure I want to go there.) But you do realize that when this half-assed health care plan goes haywire - and it will - everybody's going to blame you, not him.
So please act like grown-ups. Or at least bipeds with a healthy self-preservation instinct.
