GOP Eyes Tax Overhaul -- And Lessons From Health-Care Failure

We couldn't pass a 2017 budget.

Trump threw his weight behind the Republicans' replacement bill, cajoling and strong-arming House members to vote for the bill.

Friday's events cast doubt on whether Ryan can get major legislation approved by fractious Republican lawmakers.

"The House leadership will get the blame for the bill because they are the ones who scheduled it, put it together, produced it, but I'm not sure there's going to be that much blame", he said.

Democrats said Americans can "breathe a sigh of relief". "And I think that's where the president finally drew the line and said we've been having this discussion, we've had the meetings and we've done everything possible to address the concerns, and ideas and opinions that people have brought up", he said.

The American Healthcare Act was pulled from a floor vote Friday because it didn't have enough votes despite a strong push from President Donald Trump and long hours behind the scenes to make changes to the legislation by House Speaker Paul Ryan.

President Obama's spokesman tried to needle President Trump and Republican lawmakers on Friday after it became clear that their plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare was headed toward defeat.

Rep. Dave Reichert, who voted to pass the AHCA out of the Ways and Means Committee, later announced he was undecided on the bill, according to Seattle Times reporting.

He had "never said repeal and replace it in 64 days", a dejected but still combative Trump said at the White House, though he had repeatedly shouted during the presidential campaign that it was going down "immediately".

"You have no choice but to vote for this bill", he reportedly said.

Trump told reporters Friday that he would be "open to it" if Democrats wanted to work on a bipartisan measure. "There is a bloc of no votes that we had that, that is why this didn't pass".

The Speaker added that the President "gave his all in this effort. he's been really fantastic". "My worry is that Obamacare is going to be getting even worse". Do you think this is wrong?

After Match Play, can anyone beat Dustin Johnson?
Those answers could be construed as elusive rhetoric from any other player, but in Johnson's case, it's just the plain truth. At the 16th Rahm brilliantly holed from 31ft, meaning Johnson was suddenly only one hole ahead with two to play.

The partisan divide over the House Intelligence Committee's probe of Russian interference in the USA presidential election deepens when the committee's top Democrat suggested its Republican chairman canceled a public hearing after pressure from the White House.

Democrats could hardly contain their satisfaction.

He said there would be no further effort to reform health care until Democrats were on board. "Let's just for a moment breathe a sigh of relief for the American people". The bill was widely criticized from both ends of the political spectrum.

For the president, this piles a big early congressional defeat onto the continuing inquiries into his presidential campaign's Russian Federation connections and his unfounded wiretapping allegations against Obama. The bill, backed by Trump, has proved a tough sell to both conservative and moderate factions in his own Republican party. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, chairman of a major committee, Appropriations, said the bill would raise costs unacceptably on his constituents.

The defections raised the possibility that the bill would not only lose on the floor, but lose big. In addition to removing the requirement that insurance plans must include pediatric dental coverage, the bill would have also cut Medicaid funds to states and not required insurance plans to cover prescription drugs. The bill would have blocked federal payments for a year to Planned Parenthood. On the other side, conservative groups including the Koch outfit argued the legislation did not go far enough in uprooting Obamacare.

"We were very close, and it was a very, very tight margin", he added. That's it. It's done.
