Why aren’t conservatives furious at the President? Because they blame others.
Are Conservative furious over the failure to repeal Obamacare yet? Absolutely. But they don’t blame Donald Trump. Though a few have expressed criticism of him for not promoting a plan more aggressively, Congressional Republicans had been promising to repeal Obamacare for years. They claimed the only problem was they didn’t have enough numbers to override Obama’s veto. So, voters gave them a President who was anxious to sign anything they sent him.
And Republicans sent him nothing.
No wonder Conservatives are furious.
The Hill reports, “Conservatives target Congress, not Trump, after healthcare collapse.”
Conservatives are lashing out at the Republican-controlled Congress over the lack of progress on President Trump’s agenda.
One by one, conservative groups lined up to blame Congress — not the president — for the collapse of Senate Republicans’ effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
“It’s shocking the amount of pushback he’s getting from his own party,” said Carl Higbie, a former spokesman for the pro-Trump Great America PAC. “It’s time to primary some of these longstanding congressional leaders that can’t get the job done.”[…]
Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler fumed, ticking through the names of senators who he said abandoned conservative voters by opposing a subsequent measure to repeal the Affordable Care Act and put off replacement.
“[Alaska Sen. Lisa] Murkowski, [West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore] Capito and Collins. People are furious. And not one ounce of it is directed at Trump,” Meckler said.
