Republicans Pass Trumpcare, Then Go Into Hiding

It’s been a longtime complaint of mine that Democrats have been so lackluster in the support of Obamacare. But that’s nothing. After watching Republicans dash for the exits after passing Trumpcare, here’s how I now think of Democratic enthusiasm for Obamacare:

After voting to pass Trumpcare, Republicans are practically scurrying to find rocks to hide under. They don’t want to talk to reporters and they don’t want to hold townhalls for their constituents. You’d think they’d all be proud of their votes. But it sure doesn’t seem like it. Funny, isn’t it?
