Trump Continues To Target The House Freedom Caucus After Healthcare Bill Fails

Trump signals new openness to Dems

One day later, Trump and Speaker Paul RyanPaul RyanPete King: Freedom Caucus to blame for failed healthcare bill Fox News host promoted by Trump calls on Paul Ryan to step down Dan Rather: Failure to repeal ObamaCare most "staggering loss" so early in a term MORE (R-Wis.) chose to pull the legislation moments before a planned House floor vote after it became clear it would not pass.

WASHINGTON ― The House Freedom Caucus proved Friday that they can not be run over by Donald Trump.

Before the bill was pulled, Trump tweeted at the Freedom Caucus, saying Planned Parenthood funding would continue if they blocked the legislation.

The House Freedom Caucus got its start in 2015 when a small group of members came together to push for more conservative spending and policy ideals in the House.

Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger agreed with the president when he appeared on "Fox & Friends" shortly after the tweet.

In this chart below, we highlight the Republican members that have been critical of the bill, sorted by where they fall on an ideological scale. "Instead they use it as an opportunity, very frankly, to go out and get on the cameras and get in the newspapers and get on television, and they empower these other groups that raise money on this". One of the major questions being debated was one that affects half the country: whether maternity care and mammograms would be considered "essential" treatments that all health care plans should be required to cover.

Senate votes to kill broadband privacy rules
The FCC's definition of sensitive data is broader than the FTC's, which oversees privacy for search engines and social networks. But you'd be wrong: at this point, they'll say anything to block the FCC's privacy-protective rules.

Placing lawmakers on this scale helps us better organize the groups that have chipped away at Speaker Paul Ryan's majority - and it shows why it's been so hard for Ryan to find strategic ways to appease certain factions to pass this bill.

Ryan purportedly needed about 20 more votes, mostly from Freedom Caucus members and a handful of GOP House moderates. "That's what the Freedom Caucus was created to do - fight for those simple principles".

The House was scheduled to vote Thursday on a bill that would repeal and replace Obama's health law.

"Because then it becomes all or nothing, and it's going to end up becoming nothing".

He says the president "is looking forward to seeing Republicans fulfill the pledge" they made to repeal the Obamacare law. Moderate Republicans felt both of these needed to stay, so the GOP healthcare bill lost their vote whenever Trump and Paul Ryan were willing to bend and add some of it in.

'I deeply regret my comments on such an important topic, ' Roberts said in a statement.
