Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), was given enough rope to hang himself, and he did. His statement at a Rotary Club meeting in Kentucky proved him to be a chief culprit in what every single American - Republican, Democrat and Independent - hates about Washington, DC.
McConnell, laboring through his speech style, which for the leader of the greatest debate floor on the planet is embarrassing, suggested that President Trump was too inexperienced in politics to understand how slow the Legislative Branch works. He went on to say Trump suffers from “excessive expectations” about what both chambers of Congress can get done.
This is the most pathetic excuse for sustaining political bureaucracy that has ever been muttered, and that's what McConnell does, mutter. His excuse justifies the inefficient processes of government; processes that today exist to the immediate financial detriment to the taxpayers of the United States.
Trump is correct on this point beyond any argument. After 7 years of pontificating about immediate repeal and replacement of Obamacare, Republicans, under McConnell's leadership in the Senate, have not only failed miserably, they have proven that they expected the law to remain in effect long after the 2016 General Election. How else can they explain not having a replacement bill crafted and agreed upon in advance for this very moment?
This failure is either the biggest legislative delinquency in the history of the United States, or it was the biggest con ever perpetrated against the American people, and that's saying a lot when you consider how Obamacare was brought to law.
Now this political reptile insists the fault of expectation lays exclusively with Donald Trump (forgetting the American people expect swift action on this an other issue as well), even as he prepares to ignore the repeal of Obamacare by "moving on" to other things.
The last time we heard "move on" was when Bill Clinton was caught violating Monica Lewinski with a cigar in the oval office. That, too, was meant to cover-up a deficiency.
Note to Mitch McConnell...get Obamacare repealed or preside over the end of Republican majorities in Congress for decades to come. That will be your legacy and it will be solely your making.
