Congressional Kabuki

The Republican health care repeal action is an elaborate shadow puppet performance, complete with loud drums. Not only does it have no chance of passing the Senate (and is therefore a futile gesture) but if repeal did have a chance Republicans would back away from it faster than a scalded puppy.

Too many powerful big money interests (Big Pharma, insurance companies) stand to profit from the bill that passed to allow that to happen. So enjoy the performance of fake outrage. You're allowed to laugh, it is a comedy.
Sound and fury signifying nothing. ~ Shakespeare, MacBeth
