This behavior is part and parcel with the dismissive way that Republican pundits speak of Democrats and their policies:
we don’t want any of that socialism ’round here.
They think, just like they always have, that they will retain power. They never think that they won’t win (see the ham loaf’s reaction to Romney losing in 2012) they can’t even imagine that losing is possible. This is why they were brave enough to touch the third rail of American politics in the form of the AHCA and try to defund Medicare. We must defeat all of them now. All of them must go.
The recent unanswered letters include: a request from senators asking for details on Jared Kushner’s conflicts of interest; another asking how agencies will implement Trump-ordered changes to Obamacare; and a third asking for details on officials the administration has quietly installed in so-called beachhead teams across the government.Propublica
