America needs to find some kind of middle ground before it is too late.
Democrats refuse to accept any kind of compromise to repeal the affordable care act and republicans refuse to take the time to come up with a suitable solution. Americans are suffering as a result and that’s NOT acceptable. Trey Gowdy went on “Fox and Friends” Friday to convey this very message.
As the “skinny plan” — the latest Republican effort to repeal but not replace Obamacare — dies, Representative Trey Gowdy has announced that he will not be one of its pall-bearers.
Our problem is that for seven years, we’ve been telling folks what we’re against and what we’re opposed to. And then we’ve had seven months to govern and the best we can come up with is a skinny plan on 24 hours notice?
We’ve gotta get better at telling people what we believe, why we believe it, and then persuading them that it is right for the country.
We’ve had plenty of time to do it, we set unrealistic expectations, and then we never meet them, which leads to anger and frustration.
“It’s a complicated issue, but it’s always been. We’ve had seven years to figure it out and the best we came up with is something called ‘skinny.’
When Brian Kilmeade asked him if Republicans should ‘move on or go back’, Gowdy responded:
No, we gotta go back. It impacts 20 percent of the economy. It was a fundamental promise of the Trump campaign. And it desperately needs to be done. The Affordable Care Act is failing.
