How to use debacle in a sentence?

  1. President Trump:

    House and Senate Republican leaders were hoping to be united on tax reform to avoid a repeat of this summer’s ObamaCare repeal debacle. But that plan will be put to the test as the Senate prepares to unveil its version of the tax bill, which reportedly could eliminate popular state and local tax deductions and include additional changes from the House bill. Any big differences between the competing bills could slow or sideline the legislation, though leaders are aiming for swift passage.‘We did things differently this time because of the health care experience,’ House SpeakerPaul Ryantold Fox News on Sunday. ‘We worked with the Senate ahead of time, from the summer on, to put this bill together.’ Senate Republican leaders reportedly are considering the elimination of the state-and-local tax deductions, while the House is pushing only for a partial rollback and still deliberating in committee.

  2. David Karol:

    I could see Trump being a failed nominee, and the whole thing being a debacle for them with lasting consequences, they would probably lose the Senate, then they would lose the Supreme Court.

  3. Matthew Bryza:

    Russia’s goal in its lone mediation mission appears to be twofold: firstly, to repair its international reputation in relation to its debacle in Ukraine, and secondly to strengthen the impression in Armenia and Azerbaijan that Russia calls the shots in the South Caucasus, the fact that the U.S. administration is so absent and timid in its response has the impact of ceding the strategic field in the South Caucasus to Russia. This can have profound and dangerous consequences in Syria, Ukraine, and far beyond.

  4. Larry Norden:

    That's my biggest concern by far : Is there an adequate backup plan ? i do think that Georgia has been doing a lot of things to improve from the debacle of the primaries -- particularly the Atlanta-area counties -- but I don't think they've done enough to be ready for this fall.

  5. Leoncio Evasco Jr:

    It also further unmasks the true character of the Aquino regime – one that in the face of debacle will abandon ship and run like a headless chicken.
