This. Is. Not. Normal.
That would be Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) commenting on the latest “news” on Trumpcare, that bill text will be seen this week and a vote next week. He has to hear it from a reporter, since his leader Mitch McConnell apparently doesn’t see the need to communicate with even his own team. If any Republican senator had any self-respect (not to mention integrity, or sense of duty, or basic humanity) they’d rebel against this.
They won’t rebel. They’ll follow their leader. And they’ll rue the day.
