This is sad, sad, day for Establishment Republicans.
They were counting on the robes to strike down Obamacare. DARN, now the Republicans are back in the hot seat and need to figure out their next strategy on how to make good on the election promises they made to their base: Repeal Obamacare in its entirety.
To date, they have paid nothing but lip service to this promise: They have taken a vote 46 times to repeal it when they knew the vote was meaningless (but it looked good back in their districts). Yet when they had an one opportunity to stop Obamacare in its tracks with the power of the checkbook, they chose to squander that opportunity and instead fully funded Obamacare.
Establishment Republicans – In the words of my father:
Its time to S*** or get off the pot.
