The grand strategy might Sen. Mitch McConnell has devised a new Republican strategy for eliminating health care for millions of Americans and giving a major tax windfall to his best buds.
It's best labeled Confusion, Lies and Misdirection. Or, more crassly, "baffle 'em with bull---t".
So, what is different from the past Republican strategies?
This one relies on keeping everything secret, even from the Republican senators, until just before voting. No committee meetings, no vetting by the medical or insurance people, let alone presenting the “bill” to the public for input.
The idea is no one knows what the heck is going on but they will be obligated to vote for it.
All this reminds me of the good old days when politicians knew which way they had to vote or they would be missing both kneecaps or looking upon the mutilated body of a loved one.
Way to go Mitch!
You’ve managed to find a deep, deep sewer to crawl through. That is an accomplishment you can brag about when you next visit with Mr. Trump. He might even smoke a big ceegar with you, share a nip of brandy at one of his hotels, and give you an “atta-boy” tweet!
