Well, the democrats made clear they were willing to do whatever it takes, procedure be damned, to pass their HCR. Why? Because they think their HCR is what’s best for the country. Now, republicans are doing whatever it takes to put HCR on track for repeal/complete-overhaul. Why? Because they think that HCR is horrible and repealing it or chopping it up is what’s best. If either side was being honest about “just doing what’s right”, it’d be admirable although still 100% wrong. The fact is, they are almost to a number self-serving power whores and it sucks watching them on public display.

This is bullshit. The Republicans used every single procedural trick in the book and even invented some new ones to derail the whole process. They never offered up a single bit of constructive input to the bill and did everything in their power to sabotage it from day one. The Dems reached out again and again to the GOP and accepted all manner of stupid demands in order to work with them. The GOP for its part never once negotiated in good faith.

The debate is less than a week old now. Even for you that is fast off the mark to try to rewrite history.
