It began early in the morning, when CBS broadcast an interview with House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Following the failure of the American Health Care Act, it's more complicated than ever.
Unlike some *ahem* other columnists, I'm of the opinion that legitimate, politically acceptable, full repeal and replacement legislation should have been ready day one.
"Did you ask to see the documents yourself?" "I thought she was gonna talk about something else,"' Ryan explained. "Those activities could undermine the policy and make it hard for the program to be effective", Darrell West, vice president and director of governance of the Brookings Institution, told Xinhua.
"While the lawsuit does remain in abeyance right now, it's very important we receive some indication from Congress and confirmation that [the payments will be made] through 2018", AHIP spokeswoman Kristine Grow said.
"Oh - he was gonna brief everybody".
With this failure of ideas, it is incumbent that Republicans now accept what the American people already know: the current system (yes, Obamacare) is working.
Ryan also said he does not believe that Trump is under investigation for ties to Russian Federation. "That would be the most legal way to do it", Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden, Oregon Republican, said.
"[If] the Republican Congress allows the flawless to be the enemy of the good, I worry we'll push the president into working with Democrats".
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. "He briefs me about it, didn't know the content of it, only knew the nature of it and that he was going to brief others". Remember that you are in office to serve your constituents. You can see the most classified intelligence that our government has, right?More news: NCAA tournament: Badgers' blue collars better than blue chippers
"But they want it to be a self-fulfilling prophecy", Mrs. Pelosi said.
Previously, Republicans had said they would not reconsider another attempt to repeal Obamacare. A spokesman said he was unable to fully comment until later Thursday, though the @GarrettforVA account quoted Trump's tweet, asking, "Stockholm syndrome?"
"Yeah, but I don't believe that he is".
Ryan said Trump called him and apologized.
BUCKNER, Kentucky (AP) - One of the House Republican rebels, Kentucky Rep. Tom Massie, wasn't just "no" on the GOP health care bill to replace Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. There was, however, one huge problem: It didn't actually repeal Obamacare. Others pointed out that the timescale was too ambitious from the start - there had been howls of protest from Democrats for weeks that the Bill was being rushed through without sufficient scrutiny and costings. "Now, I want this thing gutted".
I did not hear many Republicans assure us that their failed bill would have been great for America.
So what's the Plan B?
'No, I'm trying to get this bill passed, ' Ryan said.
"And so he is just expressing his frustration". For the first time in years, our legislators did not merely follow the party line, but were thoughtful and listened to the people. Quite the opposite. We, in Congress, have more than enough time to craft a bill that matches the commitment we made to the American people. And 64 percent of the public favors providing a guaranteed level of health coverage for seniors and low-income people, even if it requires an increased role and higher spending by the federal government.
At a news conference on Capitol Hill, Ryan said he understands "the president's frustration". A March Quinnipiac University poll found 56 percent disapproved of the Republican plan to undermine Obamacare, with just 17 percent responding in favor. "Because first we've got to take back the White House, we've got to take back the Senate, and we've got to take back the House". "So it is inconceivable that we would've been able to write a tax reform bill - and into law before summer", Ryan said.
