#RINO #MitchMcConnell owns the #Obamacare #RepealAndReplace #EpicFail

Mitch McConnell is helping the Trump presidency fail. That’s not the outcome the Senate Republican leader intended, of course. But that’s what he achieved last week when he presided over the apparent collapse of his party’s seven-year campaign to repeal Obamacare.

Presidents succeed when they deliver on their core campaign promises, and tend to fail when they don’t. A president who thinks strategically tries to begin his tenure with a legislative victory, to bolster an image of competence and strength.

Instead, President Trump’s first big legislative effort just ended in a stinging loss. There’s plenty of blame to go around, but McConnell, the owlish Kentuckian with a now-dented reputation as a legislative wizard, was the man in charge.
