Republicans must overcome gridlock in their own party

'Are we actively planning an immediate strategy?

Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, announced Sunday he was done being a member of the group. Caucus members could have pocketed their wins, declared victory and voted to move the legislation forward - vowing to keep working to improve the bill. It attracted both Republicans and Democrats.

Last Friday, House Republicans couldn't muster the votes for their marquee legislation to repeal and replace the health care law and pulled it off the floor in an embarrassing setback for Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan.

Conservative members believed the legislation didn't go far enough to repeal the Affordable Care Act, while more moderate members were anxious about estimates that more than 24 million Americans could lose coverage under the bill.

The Freedom Caucus, which in many ways aligns more closely with Trump than House leadership, visited the White House for meetings with the president, vice president and other administration officials.

Equally regrettable is that Republicans appear to be giving up and moving on to other issues. "Everybody wants to get it done". "What gets us to yes from a more conservative side of the spectrum?"

Overlooking the fact that Trump seemingly did not know the rules of either the House or the Senate, suggested by his statement above, the irony of this situation is overwhelmingly satisfactory following the seven years of Republican promises to repeal Obamacare.

Ryan declined to lay out a time line "because this is too important to not get right and to put an artificial time line on", though the House last week had unsuccessfully tried to time its repeal vote on the seventh anniversary of Obama signing the bill into law. Our Democratic friends ought to be pretty happy about that because we have the existing law in place. "I think it will actually, I think it's going to happen, because we've all been promising - Democrat, Republican - we've all been promising that to the American people, so I think a lot of good things are going to happen".

"We believe it will not work out well, but we'll see", McConnell said.

Asked about House plans for a do-over, Sen. (After all, hadn't the CBO been wrong in the past?) What they didn't say is that those uninsurance numbers were essential to making the Ryan plan work.

The move will affect Ford's bottom line in the first quarter of the year, cutting pretax earnings by $295 million. The company recalled more than 2.3 million vehicles last fall because their door latches weren't working properly.

Ronald Reagan was known to say that he would happily take 70 or 80 percent of what he wanted and come back for the rest later.

Headline: "Humiliating loss for Trump, Ryan".

On Twitter Monday night, Trump hinted that he may be more inclined to negotiate Trumpcare 2.0 with Democrats, many of whom are up for reelection in 2018 in states won by Trump, than with the most recalcitrant conservative members of the Republican Party.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that no concerted effort to pass a GOP healthcare bill is about to proceed. "If you think this is complicated and controversial, wait 'til we get into tax reform".

Spicer on Tuesday confirmed ongoing White House contacts but stopped far short of predicting success.

"That's not what we said we would do", he added.

Lawmakers are also constrained by technical reasons, with the House and Senate now using a reconciliation process that makes it easier to pass legislation without Democratic support. Spearheaded by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, the proposed replacement for Obamacare, dubbed the American Health Care Act, would have curtailed federal funding of Medicaid, eradicated the individual mandate and end the requirement that employers offer policies covering things such as maternity and mental health. And that's exactly what we're doing, ' he said. "We're willing to make changes". Almost 200 Wedge practices, where patients can find affordable, patient-centered care, are located in 44 states and listed online. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

But Weber, who said he helped lead a standing ovation for Ryan, said the meeting helped members clear the air.

"I don't think the partisan-only approach will yield any significant progress", said Pennsylvania Rep. Another 28 percent blamed the failure of either Trump or congressional Republicans to comprise. Meanwhile, President Trump proved that his world-famous negotiating skills are better suited for reality television than reality.
