Wow. Huckster Ryan blew a big hole in GOP credibility.

What on earth is this guy NOT embarrassed? He's got the Oregon embarrassment, Greg Walden, slobbering all over himself with new-found notoriety, on his left, and goofball McCarthy on his right. Ryan is leading THESE TWO?

Ryan's pitch was more fast talk than hard talk. It sounded like Ryan had just gulped down a triple espresso before he hit the press conference-- full of confidence in his style of presentation, knowing better than the rest of us that the content of his bills lacked anything of substance for the common citizen.

1. They knew that it would not pass.

They knew that many Republicans and almost all the Democrats were against their plan. Yet, they chose to present it anyway. I guess they want to hurry and get it out of the way so they can move on to more important things?

2. they've long been hucksters. i'd say republicans haven't had a good idea since the epa under nixon

but i'm guessing that wasn't their idea, he just didn't veto it.

5. Another hole in a fishing net

Hardly even be noticed. Their partisans don't care about the broken promises or the lies, as long as the right people suffer, it's all good. Sure, Aunt Fanny will probably die years too soon, but my guys are stickin' it to those minorities and immigrants, so life is good. No, I don't have my job back, or it pays only a fraction of what my daddy made for the same work, but I'm still better than that schlub who fries my burger at McDonald's.
