Senator criticizes House speaker on health care

Republican AHCA makes health care unaffordable

Other conservatives said they needed more information about the tax bill to form an opinion - and some space from the contentious health care debate. Massie was "hell no".

With Republicans' inability to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, they now own it. "I do think it's smart to take the time to get it right".

In every instance, her calculation was clear: If the bill advanced the national interest, reflected consensus in her caucus and didn't deviate from the strategic imperative of achieving a Democratic majority, she produced the necessary votes.

Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, who helped derail the bill, have been talking with some Republican moderate holdouts in an effort to identify changes that could help win their support for the measure.

'The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. How does that Examiner story look now, though, three weeks later, with Trump vowing to "fight" the Freedom Caucus in 2018 and Scavino singling out individual members as targets?

"I don't want government running health care". Trump's famed deal-making and power of persuasion faltered with his own party, a remarkable turn at a time when the GOP controls the White House, Senate and House. They have to, and they are probably seeing polling that shows GOP voter anger. "And for Amash to reject them is to not reflect what I know to be the desire of the constituents of this district".

In an interview with 9News reporter Brandon Rittiman after House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the bill from consideration, Buck said he was undecided. Some argue he was too willing to accept pieces of "Obamacare.".

Limbaugh mentioned a Politico story describing the House Freedom Caucus leadership as "ringleaders" before saying there was a better way to handle the House Freedom Caucus than calling them out on Twitter. "We need to take them out by statute'". "Nancy (Pelosi) and I see things very, very differently".

The infighting within the House Republican conference, meanwhile, could pose challenges for those items as well as a must-pass spending bill to keep the government open beyond the April 29 funding deadline. "The issue's not dead, they'll return to it".

SCOUTING REPORT: "The most impressive win in this tournament has been OR going into Kansas City and smacking Kansas". "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a.", Williams said with a smile, quoting Clark Gable's famed line as Rhett Butler.

"I don't want that to happen", he said.

U.S. Rep. Ken Buck took some heat last Friday for refusing to reveal his position on the Republican health care plan that collapsed before ever getting a vote.

"That's the problem with the first effort: It didn't kill the law", Limbaugh said.

On the question of what should be in repeal legislation, "I don't know that we're that far apart" from Trump, Meadows said.

"Now in my opinion, it's not the Freedom Caucus that's responsible for the GOP failure in this case to repeal and replace Obamacare", Hannity said on his eponymous program.

The policy brief focuses on how the proposed law would have affected both Californians who buy insurance on the state health exchange, called Covered California, and those who buy private insurance without subsidies, totaling about 2.35 million people, according to 2015 data from the California Health Care Foundation.

Raw feelings and mistrust could pose an obstacle to President Donald Trump and hard-line conservative lawmakers in his Republican Party as they seek to rebound from defeat on healthcare legislation by launching into an overhaul of the us tax code. The House bill had already divided GOP senators and would have required major changes to pass.

"Freedom Caucus stood with u when others ran", Labrador wrote.
