Who would be a Republican having to vote on this health-care bill?

What a bind they're in, the craven slimeballs. On the one hand, campaign promises, Trump, major donors who want a tax break. On the other, the majority of their constituents, who don't want this bill passed. On the first hand, don't renege on campaign promises, or you won't be re-elected; on the second, voting against your constituents' wishes won't get you re-elected, either, plus Trump is so unpopular that his support is unlikely to be helpful to you. So the question is, which is more important? Getting major bucks from wealthy donors who want an end to ACA, or serving the people you were elected to serve--and who have the power to refuse to re-elect you, no matter how much money you have.

I pray to glob that this bill goes nowhere. I am enjoying contemplating the pain these creeps must be experiencing right now, and if the bill passes, my joy will come to naught.

Do you get to keep campaign contributions if you don't get elected? If so, that must offer them some comfort.

1. Their pain?

MY PAIN is 1,000,000,000 time more than any they would experience, but they are robots so they do not feel pain, have no heart, etc. I think they are hoping that by the time their reelection rolls around their constituents will either forget or be too ill (or better yet- dead) to vote. In the meantime they will sock away as much corrupt and dirty money as possible to live very, very well if they aren't reelected.
