The Republican Senate failed to get healthcare passed after seven years of claiming to want Obamacare repealed, after voting for it, time and again when it didn’t matter.
So imagine the surprise, when Sen. Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump had ‘excessive expectations about how fast it took to get things done.
Yes, how dare Trump or any of the rest of us expect that after seven years we could repeal something when you campaigned on doing it.
Senator Mitch McConnell said I had "excessive expectations," but I don't think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?

Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!

In response to Trump, 11 senators came out in support of Mitch McConnell and having done nothing.
Sens. tweeting support of McConnell:

Collins and Capito helped to do in repealing Obamacare, so they really are part of the problem not the solution.
But Collins was one who voiced support for McConnell.
Majority Leader McConnell understands the Senate is a deliberative & diverse body. He enjoys broad support in our Caucus.

As did John Cornyn.
Passing POTUS's legislative agenda requires a team effort . No one is more qualified than Mitch McConnell to lead Senate in that effort.

And Jeff Flake.
.@SenateMajLdr does a tough job well. He has my support.

Why are you supporting failure and not getting anything done?
You’ve promised repeal for 7 years and delivered nothing.
Doubtless you would think us guilty of excessive expectations that you actually fulfill your campaign promises…
