I must confess ignorance.
The republicans are speeding toward voting to approve a health care bill that virtually nobody wants. It seems to me (but, like I said, I don't really know much about it, so I'm probably wrong) that there's nothing in this for republicans. Their base doesn't want it (although fox propaganda could change that). Con man don doesn't want it anymore. Anyway, he called it mean. Which I guess means he doesn't want it. Or maybe he just doesn't want to be held responsible for it. Even if con man don did want it, it wouldn't make sense to stick your neck out for him when he's shown a complete lack of desire to back you up when it's important. But he doesn't even want it!
I think it's silly when people go on the internet and ask questions to which the answers are easily googleable. You're on the internet, for god's sake! But I can't find the answer to this. Every article I read goes on and on about the conflict between trump and congress and the conflict within congress and how the public hates this bill (what little they know about it) and how the republicans are being opaque and how they're hiding this bill because they know it will be hated...well, everything except why the republicans are voting for this.
I'm not being snarky or trying to show how stupid the republicans are here (I do enough of that on other threads). I'm genuinely stumped as to why republicans are voting for this, and I'm extremely curious about it, and I hope somebody out there can enlighten me.
