Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused President Trump of not knowing how Congress works; the National Review faulted Trump for the failure as well. Now McConnell says "it's time to move on," but many voters are furious that Republicans have broken their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, and Trump and his allies blame Republicans in Congress. Who's to blame?

But Jonathan S. Tobin says the president's ignorance of health care policy and his failure to sell the new plan to the American people doomed it to failure.

Trump assumed that he could pass off the normal political responsibilities of a president to either his staff or the House and Senate leadership and still get the results he wanted. He was wrong about that....Trump can blame a lot of people for this failure, and many of them will deserve it. But the chief architect of the worst disaster of his administration is the man in the mirror.
