President Trump took to his Twitter account this morning to rip into The House Freedom Caucus.
What's the Freedom Caucus?
Robert Wenzel describes them as such:
The House Freedom Caucus is a congressional caucus consisting of conservative Republican members of the United States House of Representatives.
The caucus should not be mistaken with free market advocacy or libertarianism. They are low-level interventionists.
That said, they are much better than congressional non-caucus members…
These individuals in the House "smelt a rat" with Trumpcare and refused to vote for it. After all, while President Trump was campaigning for office, he told everyone that he was going to get rid of Obamacare, not make it worse!
So the Freedom Caucus (thankfully) stuck to their guns.
Afterwards, the President had the option of accepting defeat graciously.
However, instead of learning from Hillary Clinton's mistakes for not taking responsibility for her electoral loss, Trump went to work on pointing fingers for his legislative loss:
The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. After so many bad years they were ready for a win!
Now what's wrong with this picture, along with not taking responsibility for it himself?
Michael Boldin of The Tenth Amendment Center spotted it right away. He said that President Trump: "could attack those wanting more government or those wanting less. He chose to attack the ones wanting less."
Those who don't want Obamacare 2.0, and don't want government healthcare tyranny, must be on the receiving end of Trump's attacks.
