As if this wasn’t tried before, Senate Republicans on Thursday wasted even more tax-payers’ time and money with yet another meaningless vote on a pointless legislation to defund Obamacare.
Not to be outdone, Democrats seized the debate to try to force votes on gun control legislation that could put some Republicans in a politically tough position as the country is reeling from arecent spate of mass shootings.
By voting to nullify Obamacare — the signature domestic accomplishment of the Obama administration — GOP congressional leaders fulfilled a longtime pledge to voters and rank-and-file members to get a repeal to President Barack Obama’s desk, even though he will veto it.
