4. 2014 and the surrendering before the fight
As we’ve previously said, in 2010, the Republicans lost their chance of controlling the Senate, but they succeeded in 2014, thanks to the midterm elections.
But before the new members managed to take their oaths of office, then-Senate Majority Leader-elect Mitch McConnell made a promise to never set off a government shutdown.
Moreover, people believe that a particular event relieved the biggest pressure the GOP could have enforced against then-president Barack Obama.
5. 2017 and the Obamacare
Some political analysts say that these 4 things we’ve previously discussed aren’t the only mistakes the GOP has made through the years. They say that the White House and congressional Republicans made their biggest mistake under the rule of Trump.
It seems that the things they didn’t do properly were their failure to pass the repeal of Obamacare in 2017 and their absence of any radical plan to restore the ACA, even if it was completely canceled.
However, the biggest damage was done in 2018 during the midterm elections, when voters said that they thought the biggest problem in the country was health care.
It didn’t matter what the Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump’s administration did to address increasing healthcare costs in the period that followed, because this was a major error throughout those 4 years Trump was in office.
