And so, a Republican lawmaker vented his anger and blamed "female senators" for the failure. "All we've really done this year is confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court". "You're going to have such great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost, and it's going to be so easy", he said last October.
