    One thing Trump has done that I strongly disapprove of was appointing Reince Priebus his Chief of Staff. Priebus and the GOP establishment has nothing but contempt for the conservative wing of the party. I am under no illusion that Donald Trump is a conservative, but the only thing conservative about Priebus and the party hacks in Congress that make up the party's "leadership" team is their campaign rhetoric. Obama could not have done nearly as much damage to this country had it not been for weasels like McConnel, Ryan, Boehner, Corker, McCain, Graham, et al. cutting backroom deals with him while bashing Obama in public.

    Voters who expected Republicans to repeal Obamacare need to hold Trump and the Republican Congressional weasels accountable. VOR is absolutely correct about there being no excuse for the GOP not having a replacement plan for Obamacare ready for Trump to sign into law. They have had almost 8 years to prepare such a bill and the fact that they are dragging their feet will become a huge issue in the 2018 campaign.
    Could not agree more. About the only thing I like less than Congressional Republicans is Congressional Democrats. Many R's wanted HRC to win and then "work" with her to tweak Obamacare. They would have been more comfortable with that than having to take the lead on a new plan.

    It appears this is going to be just another broken promised by the Republican party.

    A common theme with this group.

    And part of that has to be how convoluted the Obamacare bill was when passed.
