So, looks like the American Health Care Act or Trumpcare is DOA! Is it any wonder? And with it being election year next year for some Republicans the only reason some of them are showing the pretense of even "caring" is that they surely don't want to sock it to their elderly constituents, the poor, the disabled and the ill and consequently end up losing their seats in Congress as they surely would. The Republican bill is simply a No-Go.
House conservatives say they have the votes to defeat ObamaCare replacement | TheHill
By Peter Sullivan
"Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said Monday night that they are confident they have enough votes to defeat the GOPís ObamaCare replacement bill unless substantial changes are made."
"President Trump is coming to the House GOP conference meeting on Tuesday and is expected to urge passage of the measure. But Freedom Caucus lawmakers say pressure will not get to them, and promised they would be able to resist the president himself."
"The Freedom Caucus was joined in its meeting by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah), who all also have strong objections to the House bill."
