Congressman Ken Buck's new book tells us why those committee chairs put on the shows that they do. They have to pay dues to the Congressional Campaign Office of the GOP to the tune of $250,000.00 a year and the really important committees they have to cough up Half a Million a year. Who knew?
Your post sums up the angst, those of us that have been through these promises before, have.
Ryan's Health Bill was horrible but even worse was Trumps acceptance of it.

Today I received a response from my GOP congresscritter to my letter describing my disappointment with the failure to pass Obamacare repeal, something she voted for 6 times when Obama was president. Here is the response:
“The AHCA did not come to the floor for a vote and is not scheduled for a vote. However, the House is still considering various proposals to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Every American deserves health care reform that is done the right way, for the right reasons, in the right amount of time. It’s not about finding a quick fix. It’s about developing a long-term solution that works for everyone. Know that I will keep our shared support for repealing Obamacare in mind as the House considers these proposals. “
In other words - we are going to stay with the status quo while we pretend to be studying the matter.
After 40+ years of voting for Republicans, I’ve determined it is a complete waste of time. They are not conservatives, they are deceivers and willing enablers of big oppressive government. Better to stay home on election day than waste my time going to the polling station and signaling my approval of their duplicity. I’ll stay at home and recognize whoever is elected will not be representing me.
