[Ed. – They always call themselves pragmatists or “problem solvers.” But the difference between life and death lies in how you DEFINE the “problem.” That critical step can no longer be avoided.]
In the wake of the failure to repeal the problem known as Obamacare, a group of “moderate” Democrats and Republicans, who call themselves the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” are attempting to push the bailout of Obamacare exchange insurers across the finish line.
Former Trump campaign economic adviser Stephen Moore, writing at washingtontimes.com, calls out Republicans for their participation in throwing “a multi-billion dollar life line to the Obamacare insurance exchanges.” He adds:
If Republicans are partners to this fiscal crime, they are as culpable as the Democrats who passed this turkey in the first place and they certainly don’t deserve to be the governing party.
Working with Democrats on health care – whether the Bernie Sanders wing of the party or the supposed moderates known as the Problem Solvers – is a dangerous game for Republicans, notwithstanding what Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) seem to think.
