Trump thumps Freedom Caucus over health care

As President Donald Trump's attacks on the House's conservative Freedom Caucus intensify, it's becoming increasingly apparent that the current president is willing to purge the GOP of Tea Party ideals to push his agenda.

Since the health care bill's failure, Trump has continually tweeted about the Freedom Caucus undermining the bill.

The News Tribune reports GOP leaders - who control the state Senate with the aid of one conservative Democrat - say Washington state's tuition policy has finally stabilized after years of double-digit tuition hikes under Democrats.

The two top Democratic leaders in Congress - Sen. After all, they are both New Yorkers. Weber also said he is now confident health care will be brought back up in the House. Pelosi said support of Democrats depends on "first do no harm" in any proposed changes to the law.

Fact is that McConnell, Ryan, and Trump all thought that they could jam conservatives in order to get their shite sandwich passed.

At a Tuesday morning press conference, Ryan said after meeting with the House Republican Conference, without staff in the room, that he was confidant his Ryancare bill could come back.

They held a closed door meeting to determine what to do next.

Trump tweeted early Thursday, "The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast". "It depends on if they take a good path or a bad path", he said in an interview.

The Wisconsin Republican says "defunding" Planned Parenthood belongs on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Representative Raul Labrador, one of the founders of the Freedom Caucus, urged Trump in a tweet to "Remember who your real friends are".

Additionally, according to the PPP poll, 42% of voters said that Ryan was to blame for the AHCA not passing, while just 33% think it was Trump's fault. To determine their plans, though, the companies need more certainty from Trump's administration about what the rules will be going forward - if Trump keeps saying that Obamacare's exploding, that alone could scare off some companies.

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

"I don't want to become a factionalized majority. I want a patient-centered system", Ryan added. Certainly those problems are not going to be addressed and so there is an aspect here that is to wait and see, 'what does that mean?' I am less pessimistic than some who say that the whole thing is going to collapse in on itself.

Kelly Stanger of Lowell, Michigan, argued that conservatives were prevented from contributing to the bill, and said she'd vote again for Amash. Democrats have supported increasing subsidies to help more people afford insurance, though it's not clear there's much support for that on the right.

The decision is particularly important in counties where there is only one insurance company.

Ryan repeated that "90%" of his caucus is for the health care measure, but would not commit to a timeline on holding another vote.

The survey was conducted over five days preceding and following last Friday's withdrawal of the GOP health care bill. It would make major legislative accomplishments impossible, although if Obamacare repeal-and-replace fails, that might be the reality regardless.

When the American Health Care Act was pulled last week from a scheduled vote and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the ACA would remain the "law of the land," the president then claimed that he preferred for the law known as "Obamacare" to "implode" and "explode" on its own anyway.

That sentiment was echoed by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

It looks like that scheme may have worked given the number of Republicans in the U.S. House this month who insisted on replacing Obamacare instead of simply repealing it. Democrats, who have long called for spending on infrastructure improvements, could give Trump the votes he needs to get a bill through Congress.
