Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has resigned his post just a week into a growing scandal over his frequent use of chartered and military flights that cost American taxpayers more than $1 million....As health and human service secretary, Price also led Trump's unsuccessful campaign to repeal Obamacare. Trump told a crowd of Boy Scouts over the summer that Price would be "fired" if he couldn't wrangle the votes in the Senate to pass a repeal measure.
he can, but not without risking political disaster, and I think even he gets thateta: he said something in an interview a few months back, like "the longer I sit in this chair, the more the country will hold me responsible for the problems with obamacare." it was unusually lucid of him. if he really thinks that, in a serious and non-adhd way, then he must realize that actively sabotaging obamacare would come back on him. (and active sabotage would be required, if all the projections of the marketplaces being more or less stable are correct)
I see progressives, acting as private citizens, picking up some of the slack about promoting it.
