You have to wonder about the legislator’s response.
Does it mean he is dropping a pretense that they were really going to move the bill? Or is he reacting negatively, and in a “pay back” fashion, to what he felt was intimidation; attempting to suggest the bill might have otherwise had a chance? Or would that be just a cover for the true story? Maybe in time we’ll know the answer.
Our new Speaker of The House was handpicked by his predecessor, Joe Straus, another abject RINO.
There’s your answer. He was never going to push the bill through.
