Was Trump joking on health care — AP SPIN METER

Sessions Threatens Federal Funding for Sanctuary Cities in WH Briefing

But a few days later, after crashing into what might be the new third rail of American politics, Republicans are talking publicly and privately about. plan B.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul labeled the GOP replacement plan "ObamaCare Lite" before the bill was even released.

Trump himself isn't giving up.

The fact remains, however, that House Republicans aren't in a different position than they were on Friday.

"I think they're pretty shell-shocked at their inability to get anything done".

Jordan cites polls showing opposition to the bill, saying, "It doesn't change Washington like we told them we were going to change Washington".

But Greg Walden, a Republican from OR and former Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, sounded optimistic on Tuesday.

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus scolded conservative Republicans, explaining that Trump had felt "disappointed" with a "number of people he thought were loyal to him that weren't". Orrin Hatch already warns Democrats and Republicans haven't seen eye-to-eye on in the past."Democrats, they've never been real enthusiastic about corporate tax reductions", Hatch said. Also highly controversial is a proposal to impose a new tax affecting imports. But on Sunday he turned his criticism toward conservative lawmakers for the failure of the Republican bill, complaining on Twitter: "Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!"

The statement quickly earned a rebuke from a senior member of his own party. Sen.

"All last week he was calling them".

"If we just sit up here and play tiddlywinks, it'll hurt us", he said.

Gonzaga , North Carolina , Oregon and SC will all hold practices that are open to the public ahead of the national semifinals. They've held the first four tournament foes to 39.9 percent shooting and forcing an average of 16.5 turnovers.

The health care strategizing comes as the GOP has one clear bright spot: Trump's nomination of conservative appeals court Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. "Yes", Spicer told reporters in the briefing room.

"The Affordable Care Act gave millions of people health insurance for the very first time", she said. "I know he wants to get things done with the Republican Congress, but if this Republican Congress allows the ideal to be the enemy of the good, I worry we'll push the president into working with the Democrats".

Ryan vowed members would continue working although he didn't offer any specific timeline.

The sudden interest in bipartisanship is a shift for a president who has spent months mocking Democratic leaders as inept. "That needs to be done on a bipartisan basis so we're happy to work on it with Democrats if we can find any who are willing to do so rather than those who just want to stand back and enjoy the show". "They have an opportunity now to have the status quo, regretfully". "As soon as we figure it out and get the votes".

It is true some moderate Republicans began to defect as more and more concessions were made to the far right, including a move to unwind Obamacare's declaration of "essential health benefits" that must be provided by all insurers. They voted over 60 times for a repeal, which failed.

This week, some Freedom Caucus members vowed to keep working on an Obamacare replacement.

"I think that's the lesson of last week", he said.

'The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

The failed GOP bill, which party leaders withdrew shortly before a House vote that was doomed to failure, would have repealed much of former President Barack Obama's health care law.

Humbled by GOP disarray, the president said he was "moving on" to other issues after Ryan's bill collapsed. "My prayers and my support are with you". "We all want to make it easier for families to pay the bills and take care of their loved ones", he said. "What gets us to yes from a more conservative side of the spectrum?" "If you don't have the votes, you don't have the votes". But they could not say that. He may be expressing the same sentiment about tax reform next. "Do not worry, we are in very good shape!"
