I think he is asking why Republicans won't vote with the Democrats.

If they are going to fall inline with the democrats they should be primarying each and everyone of them !!! They are in the wrong party to begin with !!!
This has been a problem with democrats all along !!! They can't understand when they lose an election they don't get to rule their way and the other party doesn't have to do their bidding !!! They find it offensive they can't rule when they lose !!! They want to rig the system so they never lose !!! They want one party rule !!!

While the representatives in the GOP have never been more concerned about doing the right thing for America, versus trying to keep their jobs, in the past two years they have really shown their true colors. They are so afraid of upsetting Trump's base that they have folded like a cheap suit.

All of them, except for a few, are spineless boot lickers.

and the exact same thing can be said about the Dems. as is evident in this crop of Presidential candidates. Do you or anyone for that matter really believe the majority of people really want to give free health care too illegals? But they all raised their hands to say yes because they were afraid of losing the base during the primary if they said no.

Now whoever is selected will have to find some way of walking that back or they have no chance against Trump. Its an inherent flaw in our system that you must not offend the most fanatical of your base in order to progress your political career. Then somehow must still try to do your job. It's why i don't know why anybody beyond feeding their own ego would ever get into poltiics.

we're going to find out because millions will be spent on political ads using that hand raising spectacle as a reason you can't vote for a Democrat in 2020

I understand why they said yes. Unworldly or less educated of any color could think a NO as meaning no health care means even during an emergency. Illegals will use emergency rooms when they have no choice.
