WSJ editorial names the "Obamacare Republicans"

Evan Vucci / AP

The WSJ editorial board is pretty upset about the failure of Trumpcare, and they're naming names:

  • "The critics assailed the bill as "ObamaCare Lite," but the result of their rule-or-ruin strategy will now be the ObamaCare status quo..."
  • "...Mark Meadows (North Carolina), Jim Jordan (Ohio), Louie Gohmert (Texas) and the rest own all of its problems... The grand prize for cynicism goes to Senator Rand Paul..."
  • "Legislative compromises don't help Heritage Action raise money for its perpetual outrage machine. ... Heritage was joined in opposition by the Club for Growth and the Koch brothers' political machinery..."
  • "In business Mr. Trump liked to 'get even.' He's got some scores to settle with the Freedom Caucus."
