Krugman is being so polite when he says that given the ideological constraints of the GOP it probably couldn't come out much better anyway. I'd be more direct. Given the ideology of the GOP plus the Ignorance of its following they figure they can get away with it as long as they imply the outcome will hurt the people they all hate. ( minorities, immigrants and those they see on welfare, aka Democrats and libtards.) Of course, they also assume it won't affect THEM ( white people.) They're wrong and if it passed they'll find out sometime in the fall when they try and get their new policy. It won't matter Donald will have moved on by then and managed to get us into some other disaster. Or these same folks will be too busy trying to figure out how this all happened. Being that they're clueless they never will and that's what Trumpf, Ryan and the rest of the leadership and ownership on the right is hoping.

Yes, this is the same idea - the Trump followers are gullible. This one is on their heads though, they are running the show, and running it badly.
