Paul Ryan and his gang of losers

After promising for eight years to repeal Obamacare, the Republicans in Washington appear unable to even find the men's room.

Among them are a substantial number of "never-Trumpers," those who are as opposed to The Donald's success as the Democrats. This is because Trump threatens their comfort.

Many of these guys are just plain crooks. According to one report:
Just as the House Republican bill to slash much of the Affordable Care Act moved forward, Rep. Mike Conaway, a Texas Republican and member of Speaker Paul Ryan’s leadership team, added a health insurance company to his portfolio. 
An account owned by Conaway’s wife made two purchases of UnitedHealth stock, worth as much as $30,000, on March 24th, the day the legislation advanced in the House Rules Committee, according to disclosures. The exact value of Conaway’s investment isn’t clear, given that congressional ethics forms only show a range of amounts, and Conaway’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
He wasn't the only one. And all of these bums have given themselves a subsidy to deal personally with Obamacare, which has destroyed healthcare for so many Americans, given its high premiums and deductibles. Trump could make that sweetheart deal go away:
He could, by unilateral action – simply signing a memorandum to the Director of the Office of Personnel Management – remove Congress’ illegal special exemption from the law, and make members of Congress and their staffs live under ObamaCare without benefit of the generous illegal taxpayer-financed subsidy each now receives.
He should do it. He owes them nothing.
