Welcome to the Swamp, Mr. President!

It's "non-business as usual" for Congress, in spite of what (Republican) voters expected in 2016 and were promised for 7 years by Republican politicians. 

After hearing his unseemly public spanking of President Trump's and the American people's intelligence during his speech to a Rotary Club gathering in Kentucky on Monday, it appears to me like Senate Majority Leader McConnell doesn't want to take responsibility for his party's epic failure on healthcare reform, but would rather, shamelessly, shift the blame onto the President and Americans.

Wait 'till November 2018, Mr. McConnell...if nothing's accomplished by then, watch your party power drain from the swamp.
