RUSH: Were Republicans Ever Really Fully Behind Trump And The Repeal And Replacement Of Obamacare?

RUSH: My question is that December 6th story makes it sound like Mitch McConnell and a lot of the other Republicans were eager to go, they couldn’t wait to get in there, say, and repeal and replace Obamacare. It doesn’t specifically say it. That’s what you infer from the way the story is written, that they’re excited about it, that they’re committed to it. McConnell says it’s the first thing they’re gonna do. He came out to the Rotary Club and said, “Well, the perception that we failed is probably due to the artificial expectations people set.” Well, we now remember that it was Senator McConnell himself who set one of those expectations in that story back on December the 6th.

But my question is, were they ever really fully behind Trump and his agenda and the repeal and replacement of Obamacare? And I’m not answering the question yet, ’cause I can go both ways on it. I could probably make the case that from the moment Trump won on election night, a palpable fear swept over them. They had expected to lose. They were ready to sit there and be in the minority, in the Senate. And now all of a sudden they’re thrust into the leadership. Oh, no! And I’m like many people; I think they expected Trump to lose and were just stunned that he didn’t.
