#1 It's all Kabuki, all the way down...

#2 Roger Simon has an article out saying that ObamaCare will now survive due to Republican failure, but that's the opposite of what happened. Republicans failed to save it. Now it will either fail on its own, as it was designed to, or Republicans will vote to repeal. Sens Cruz, Lee and Moran are heroes.

#3 The Pubs don't want to pull the plug on the mess that was created but they don't want to fix it either.

#4 Well it's not getting repealed. The esteemed senator's from Maine and Murkowski said they oppose repeal-only. It's going to be a Democratic landslide in 18' when the entire base stays home.

#5 If the House is lost in 18, now a much greater probability given the massive disappointment this fractured Congress has been, there will be articles of impeachment passed within the first months. Gridlocked government and a President with little public confidence. Kamela Harris and Princess Fauxcahontas are already tuning up their girl cards....

#6 "The esteemed senator's from Maine and Murkowski said they oppose repeal-only."

That leaves a 50-50 tie which Pence can break. Also, Murkowski's principles are for sale.

#7 Ben Franklin - "We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately."

So be it, make it so.

#8 Kamela Harris and Princess Fauxcahontas are already tuning up their girl cards....

There's a scary thought. It'd be like going thru the nightmare of Hillary again in 2020 but doubly so.

#9 Hoyer now says Obamacare failure will be the Republicans' fault because they said they'd fix it and now they aren't going to.
