Michael Winship — Embattled Trump Reneges on Health Vow


This article is a bit of a rant, but it conveys the essential point that the AHCA as it stands will adversely affect a lot of the disgruntled electorate that put him in office and which he will need come 2020 if he decides to run for a second term.

Considering that the first month of the Trump administration was spent on delivering on campaign promises, this is a reversal of direction.

It is not clear yet what the final bill will look like, but if this an outline, it is an indication that either President Trump is reversing direction or is out of touch.

Add this to the disappointment about the promise of Russian détente instead of continued confrontation, based on recent appointments.

Who the **** cares about 2020? I doubt that Trump's ego, as enormous at it is, cares about it. And I don't foresee the RNC begging him to run for another term.

Four years on a lark is the most you're going to get. Enjoy!

And there's Paul Ryan, with his Wile E. Coyote grin.

2016 may have been this country's last election.

Chris Hedges might agree with you.
