Trump pledges 'easy' health care deal after defeat

Trump pledges 'easy' health care deal after defeat”

The House voted 228-190 on a mostly party-line vote to block the Democrats' effort.

Trump himself isn't giving up.

"It's an open wound within our conference right now", Congressman Chris Collins (R-NY) told reporters after the weekly House Republican conference. The math is the same. The GOP had used a process known as reconciliation to force the health care bill through Congress - a process that technically wouldn't have required any Democratic cooperation to pass with a simple majority in the Senate - but Republican schisms were so pervasive that the bill died anyway. "I don't think they are headed in that direction". "I don't think it will work out all that well".

"It's disappointing. We've got to fulfill our promises", said Sen. "They don't", he said, adding that financial disclosure forms do list investments, and Trump has filed those. "He was having a fun time with the senators there".

But Republicans can't go back to their voters and say they've given up.

House Speaker Paul Ryan declared Tuesday that his chamber will take another crack at a health care overhaul.

If Trump's intention was the latter, he could very well execute his vow - thanks to a lawsuit brought by House Republicans in 2014. The Freedom Caucus will not go along but supporters of those lawmakers are likely more concerned with truly affordable health care than ideology. DesJarlais is a member of the House Freedom Caucus, a 30-something member group of hard-line conservatives whose opposition to the health care bill helped defeat it.

According to the HuffPost/YouGov survey, just 6 percent of the country was strongly in favor of the health care plan, which Trump failed to usher through Congress.

"All last week he was calling them". They wouldn't show his overall net worth. "It think it's grown to 90 percent or better", Brady told reporters on Monday. "Are we actively planning an Immediate strategy? Not at this time".

Since the withdrawal of a proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, much of the national news media's emphasis has been on the president and not the policy. So it makes sense that legislators want to continue to pursue negotiations on a new plan that could gain enough support to move through Congress.

Just days after President Donald Trump said he was moving on to other issues, senior administration officials said they still hoped to score the kind of big legislative victory that has so far eluded the White House.

Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., an inveterate foe of the 2010 health care law, said, "Where we are on Obamacare, regretfully, at the moment is where the Democrats wanted us to be, which is with the status quo". "We believe it will not work out well, but we'll see". Republicans blocked both efforts, one on the House floor and the other in the House Ways and Means Committee. He won votes from the same people who elected Freedom Caucus members. "So once a few subgroups come together with a potential yes, boy, I think everyone is going to be happy".

"We can fix this", said Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador, another House Freedom Caucus member.

As with the past votes, two Republicans who have called on Trump to release his tax returns broke with their party. "My prayers and my support are with you".

Update: White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked about Trump's comments at Wednesday's press briefing. That could prove hard, with conservatives possibly insisting on more money to build Trump's border wall or to halt federal payments to Planned Parenthood, and Democrats abandoning the effort if it tilts against their liking. "If you don't have the votes, you don't have the votes". "Paul Ryan, who is considered such a great thinker, had no idea what the replacement should be", he said.
