Speaker Ryan Spurns Health Care Talks With Democrats

Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady speaks with the media on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. U.S. Marc

The issue with that is that neither the GOP or Democrats will have the appetite to make any small fixes that the law might need before then, Mahaffee said.

During one of many low points for the New York Mets in 1962, when the first-year franchise was on its way to losing a record-breaking 120 games, Manager Casey Stengel famously asked: "Can't anybody here play this game?" "We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!"

Schumer said Sunday that Trump must be willing to drop attempts to repeal his predecessor's signature achievement, warning that Trump was destined to "lose again" on other parts of his agenda if he remained beholden to conservative Republicans.

It did not change hearts or minds. It would be because the House Freedom Caucus is successfully guilt-tripped and shamed into coming around. Lawmakers quickly fired back at Trump, telling him to remember how his "real friends are".

It was a staple of every Tea Party rally through that election cycle, so it is unlikely the GOP base shrugs its collective shoulders and moves on the way Trump promised to do Thursday and Friday - and wait for Obamacare to "explode".

"It's clear that tensions are running high", said Sen.

"For the foreseeable future, Trump's agenda will now focus on the goals of tax reform and infrastructure investments as well as avoiding the remote risk of a government shutdown in April", Dan Mahaffee, senior vice president and director of policy at the Center for the Study of Congress and the Presidency, told Xinhua. Maybe some, but it's unlikely - and could cost Ryan his job as speaker if he doesn't have the majority of his conference and winds up working with Democrats.

Ryan was more conciliatory toward the president than Labrador.

His footwork against the spinners was as usual assured and, facing short balls, he kept himself out of harm's way. Were it indeed boxing, by now you would expect them to be resting against each other in a clinch position.

Ryan told "CBS This Morning" that if Trump works with Democrats, they will "try and change Obamacare and that's not, that's hardly a conservative thing".

"We understand there's probably members in Congress who feel like 'Look, we probably need to revisit this, and we need to make an effort to get it done, ' and if that's the case, if the legislation reaches the president's desk, I'm sure he'll look to sign it", Short told the Associated Press. "He's been suggesting that much". Bob Corker, R-SC, tweeted Thursday morning, "We have come a long way in our country when the speaker of one party urges a president NOT to work with the other party to solve a problem".

A lot of attention has been paid to the political ramifications of the failure in Washington, but the focus should be on Americans who don't qualify for Medicare or do not have coverage through their employers, and can not afford insurance that will cover them and their families when they need health care. Would their own families and average Americans have been better or worse off?

"It starts with how they're feeling about their pocketbooks and their family budget", Perry said. "We will never meet with the Freedom Caucus". But Himes hasn't heard from the president.

Himes also said the burden to extend the olive branch rests on the other side of the aisle. That would leave just one week to process the as-yet-unfinished spending package through the House and Senate. "The president doesn't want to have a government shutdown". So he didn't seem bothered by the president's Thursday tweet.

All of those concessions are meant to bring Democrats on board to make sure Congress can pass the legislation.

"When he came out against this bill, I thought, 'I trust him so this must be the right way, '" the 76-year-old retired teacher said of Massie this week as she sat at a coffee shop near her LaGrange home.
