“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough thinks the GOP has spent plenty of time complaining, and not enough time accomplishing anything.
“We will repeat again the obvious. The Republican party has been in the minority for seven years. The Republican party has been b—ing about how bad the Democrats are on health care and taxes and just about everything else,” said the former congressman on Wednesday’s broadcast.
“And yet here we are almost done with the first legislative year of the Republican party owning Washington D.C, having a monopoly and not only do they not have a health care plan, not only were they not able to repeal Obamacare, they can’t even come together on a tax reform plan, again, eight months in,” Scarborough added.
A recent bipartisan effort on Trump’s part to work with Congressional leaders Representative Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer to raise the debt ceiling and pass aid for Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts, however, have some wondering if the GOP will turn a corner when it comes to tax reform.
In July, Scarborough penned an op-ed in the Washington Post detailing his decision to leave the Republican Party, writing, “It is a dying party that I can no longer defend.”
