To: Mr. Trump, Mr. Ryan, and certain republicans From: your employer, the American people Re: health insurance bill You’ve postponed the vote on your new bill because it probably won’t pass. This is because it shouldn’t pass. The conservatives are right. There are too many things missing from the bill. Take this opportunity to fix it, to do it right. What you’ve offered, is not what you promised. We don’t want to hear that this is just a first stage and it’ll be tweaked later. That is unacceptable. Not only that, it smells of déjà vu. What’ll you tell us next? That we have to wait till it’s passed to see what’s in it? Learn from past debacles. What is happening now is an unforced error. It is sloppy. It is inexcusable. Why this promised legislation wasn’t already written up and ready to go is a head scratcher, in light of all your promises of repeal and replace. But never mind that now. Write it properly, completely, now. Create a bill that has all the elements promised and present that for a vote. Do your job.
