So a few weeks ago, the Republicans once again failed to do something the promised for years they’d do immediately… repeal the ACA (Obamacare).
Obviously, the Republican Party is full of disingenuous and immoral weasels. But what’s been confounding me for the past year is just how insane we’ve become.
Here’s what Ted Cruz had to say:
There’s no surprises in what Cruz says. He’s not only been saying this for years, but been doing everything he could, at great expense to his reputation and effectiveness in the Republican Party, to repeal Obamacare (and many other things conservatives find wrong).
Yet if you look at the comments on the YouTube page of this video, it’s full of people (presumably Trump supporters) who talk about what a lying sleeze he is.
The problem is that the record clearly shows the reason the Mitch McConnell’s of the world can’t stand Cruz is because he calls them out whenever he gets the chance. There’s never been one break in the idea that Cruz would do the things he’s saying.
And yet, we got Trump because he could be trusted.
Are we getting what we deserve, yet?
