So because they demonized the legislation from the very beginning and demanded that Dems base any new legislation on Republican political philosophy…now they’re saying that they won’t cooperate on anything?
“There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year,” McCain said during an interview Monday on an Arizona radio affiliate. “They have poisoned the well in what they’ve done and how they’ve done it.”
Wait, didn’t we just finish a year of them not cooperating?
Listen, the GOP got its chance to play ball, but they wouldn’t even come to the table with anything serious. And given that the plan closely resembles what Republicans offered as an alternative in 1994 and what Republican Mitt Romney put into effect in Massachusetts just 6 years ago…their clarion calls for repealing this should fall on deaf ears.
So, if they want to take their ball and go home…go right ahead. Meanwhile, the Dems will continue to get things done. And we’ll see how voters respond to that in November.
