As liberals and conservatives alike were celebrating the death of Trumpcare last Friday, Twitter was alive with people mocking the fact that Donald Trump hasn’t even been president for a hundred days, and he’s already suffered a major legislative defeat.
Below are a few examples:
Republicans have tried and failed to kill Obamacare for seven years.
Trumpcare died in 17 days.

Hey Republicans, don't worry, that burn is covered under the Affordable Care Act
— Senator Bob Menendez (@SenatorMenendez) March 24, 2017
Who was the last president to lose his 1st big bill? Seriously. I can't think of any. Laziest, most ignorant president is also weakest.

When Paul Ryan told Trump they didn't have the votes for Trumpcare, I would have given anything to be a microwave on the wall.

Trump has done everything possible to repeal Obamacare including 5 visits to Mar-a-lago, 9 trips to the golf course & sitting in a big truck

Republicans had 7 years to come up with a good alternative to the ACA. They failed. It's like the "Batman v Superman" of bills.

Some were a little more on the serious side:

Trumpcare was bad policy AND ineptly presented AND fought savagely by a mass popular movement. All these things are true, and matter.

Tired of GOP saying they should have focused on tax cuts. Trumpcare was nothing but a huge tax cut for wealthy masked as healthcare reform.

Trumpcare got zero Dem votes
The 2009 stimulus got zero GOP votes
Imagine if Obama announced he was going to let economy implode, blame GOP

Trumpcare was never about the well-being of Americans. It was about trying in vain to erase Barack Obama from the history books.
