Running on the promise to repeal and replace Obamacare and benefiting from the unexpected help from a wild-card, populous candidate #Donald Trump, the Republicans woke up the day after the election the unexpected majority of both the House and the Senate.

Yet, they can't seem to even agree on what to put on a ham sandwich -- never mind how to come together on a budget, tax reform or how to fix a broken healthcare system.

Instead, they do what Republicans always do: they fight among themselves and split themselves into petty factions. Republicans in Name Only (RINO) Sen. John McCain of Arizona and South Carolina Sen.

They have a phobia for governing

To any objective observer, the Republicans as a group cannibalize their own leadership, which causes their collective credibility to fall through the floor.

Sadly, it appears that the Republican Party has been on the defense and losing side so long, its members just don’t have the stomach to actually make the hard decisions and actions needed to correct the course of the United States. Instead, they are doing everything they can, either consciously or subconsciously, to lose their leadership role.

Because it is they who are being betrayed by individuals who once pretended to have integrity. #Health Care Bill
