White flag waved on Trumpcare

House Republicans pulled down the Trumpcare legislation
this afternoon and walked out, depriving Democrats of some fun in pointing out all the anti-woman, anti-poor, pro-rich aspects of a bill too generous for hardcare Republicans and too mean for the few remaining moderates.

It wasn't going to pass the Senate anyway.

Repeal and replace. Easy peasy we were always told by Tom Cotton, John Boozman, Tim Griffin, Steve Womack, Bruce Westerman, Rick Caldwell, French Hill and every Republican candidate for office in Arkansas from Greasy Creek constable to governor.

Gee. Turns out to be complicated. Proud day for MAGA.
