On Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher mocked Trump and the Republican Congress for failing to repeal ObamaCare once again. Republicans tried for years while Obama was in office to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and now that they control both chambers of Congress, they still couldn’t get it done.
“Oh, this looks bad for Trump. You know how Putin feels about failure,” Maher joked.
Paul Ryan spearheaded the push to repeal and replace Obamacare, yet he drafted a bill that “somehow covered fewer people than just repealing Obamacare.” As Maher put it, Republicans should just admit that “crafting legislation is not their thing.”
The GOP is good at a lot of things, Maher said, “screaming into the phone at talk radio, naming buildings after Reagan, secret gay sex at highway rest stops — yes. But not legislation.”
