Republicans are against the social safety net as an ideological priority yet it seems that some republicans are finding it hard to destroy the lives of their constituents. It is these republicans that may now be able to stop the march of the more extreme republicans in their quest to dismantle government by and for the people. I could almost see the few moderates who are in the now extreme republican party changing their allegiance to party and joining the democrats because it seems they are in more of an alignment with them than their republican safety net destroying colleagues. How ironic would it be if three of the maligned republican senators switched parties and by that give the democrats the majority in the Senate.
Enough of wishful thinking and back to the idea of moderates in the Senate killing trumpcare. There are two solid no's right now. That means that only one more republican moderate needs to make a stand. Heller and Collins are locked in no's. Will Murkowski, Gardner and in a alternate universe reasoning, Paul be the final one who makes the trumpcare go away? Time will tell but it is going to be clear by the end of the week. When given a chance to show their ideological purity by destroying any government program aimed at helping the working middle poor class, it seems a few republicans aren't as callous as the many of them.
