That said I still think the House flips. The hole is too deep to climb out of.
Well yes, it is the correct choice rather than have the entire world watch your party turn on you. Still, the Master of the Deal couldn't close his first big one. Let's be fair here, this is a much bigger loss for the party than Trump. Trump is the only Republican who was saying "Replace and Repeal". The rest of the party has been saying "Repeal". They had dozens of "Repeal" votes when they knew Obama would veto it.
They've now had seven fucking years to come up with something better and they couldn't. Not only that, they couldn't even come up with something their own party would sign off on. Seven, fucking, years. Party of fail.
