Quarterbacks and Closers

As I’ve noted at least a couple of times recently, Paul Ryan has called Pat Tiberi the “quarterback” of ACA repeal and implementation of the AHCA.

A few minutes ago Ryan announced that there will be no vote today on the AHCA because the GOP doesn’t have the votes to pass their wildly unpopular and horribly conceived bill. 

​Any comment, quarterback Tiberi?


Figured as much.

In other news, yesterday press secretary Sean Spicer said that Donald Trump is “the closer,” and would rally the troops to get AHCA passed. 

Any comment, closer Trump?


Guys: you may want to leave the sports metaphors to the experts. The governing too. You’re terrible at both of them.
