FOR THE LEXICON
“The Senate Goldilocks Committee.” That’s a snappy new term suggested by David Catron, a health care consultant and contributor to The American Spectator.
“There are precisely nine people standing between you and emancipation from Obamacare’s most reviled and destructive provisions. They consist of an ideologically motley crew of Republican senators who refuse to support the Better Health Care Act of 2017 unless the GOP leadership accedes to demands that are probably procedurally or politically impossible to meet,” Mr. Catron advises his readers.
“We’ll call them the Goldilocks Caucus because their positions are all variations of the ‘too soft, too hard’ principle. Each has stated that, if the final version of the bill isn’t ‘just right,’ they will leave you to the tender mercies of Obamacare.”
