So one of the things Republicans did to try to get the Freedom Caucus to vote for Trumpcare was to produce some commercials they said they’d play in the the Freedom Caucus’ districts if they voted for Trumpcare.
Oh yeah, they screwed that up.
Republicans were humiliated twice on Friday. Once, for failing to replace the Barack Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act. Then a second time, for bragging that they did on national television just hours after they failed.
Ads that aired that night during national basketball games showered a handful of congressional Republicans with praise for “keeping their promise” on replacing the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. In reality, President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) pulled their “American Health Care Act” just minutes before a scheduled vote.
Yeah, they forgot to pull the ads.
And yeah, they still want us to trust them to do things right on tax reform.
