REPUBLICAN AGENDA - Trumpcare, Crash and Burn

IMHO:  Where else could the poorly formulated plan go?  All the years that Republicans had to come up with a good heal care plan and they try at the last 'minute' to come up with one?!

This is especially true when their modus operandi is money is more important than anything else.  They are just not willing to help citizens to PAY for health care, actually GET health care.  Their message is, 'you are not worth paying for.'
