Political swamp...

There isn’t a single state that supports Trumpcare. That’s 0 out of 50 states. The voters in most states are 70 to 80 percent opposed to it, and the rest are 60 to 70 percent opposed.

As unpopular as Trumpcare is, 50 Republican senators are still thinking of voting for it. Hatch signed on even before he read it, and Lee is thinking about it. It’s the most unpopular piece of major legislation considered in decades and at Trump’s urging, many will vote for it.

It’s obvious the average citizen does not count even when it’s something important to all of us. They won’t even debate it and seek public input.

If you ever want a great example of a political swamp, this is it.
