In a world where it’s all about making sure the other guy doesn’t succeed, it’s not a big surprise when their workplace becomes nothing more than a King-of-the-Hill playground.
The health care bill is a great example.
First, understand that ‘money is the mother’s milk of politics’…it’s a vital necessity.
So, for politicians, being a congressman means carving out legislation that favors their big-money donors…in this case, the insurance companies who benefit from such favors.
Democrat politicians created a Frankenstein with the disaster that is Obamacare, and you need know nothing more than this…since 2013, insurance premiums more than doubled.
All other problems of failed coverage and huge insurance company payouts aside, nothing more than that fact – premiums doubled – puts the LIE in the ‘Affordable’ Care Act.
Now, with all the other problems of the monstrosity Democrats created, when Republicans try to resolve the problem, cooperation is the last thing Democrats have in their plans…
…because they can’t let a Democrat plan be seen as a failure…
…and they sure as hell can’t let the Republicans be seen as successful.
Proof beyond doubt, they’re not in Congress for you…they’re in it for themselves.
Hey, guys, c’mon…King of the Hill isn’t about the best leader-with-ideas being on top.
Want some irony?
Obama, the insurance industry’s Handout-in-Chief, is now calling the Republican plan a transfer of money from the poor to the rich, when that was HIS m.o. – with Obamacare.
