On Tuesday, right-wing outlet The Washington Examiner published an opinion piece by Tom McClintock. We found the substance and timing of this article insensitive given the national uproar surrounding Trump's "sh**hole" comments. The problem of course, isn’t that Trump has concerns about the state of affairs in these struggling nations. Rather, it is the fact that he has a problem with the people from these countries. McClintock has yet to provide any response, and his silence can only be interpreted as support for the President's position on immigration.
What does Tom think of the AHCA? Is it the Republican’s best effort and better system he promised us? He plainly stated the consequences of missing the target, reminding his colleagues that “we’ll be judged in the election less than two years away.” How will his previous positions hold up under pressures from Republican leadership and his constituents at home?
