In fact, R defections from the bill had grown significantly since yesterday's postponement. NBC News estimates that Trump/Ryan could have gone down by up to 100 votes.
The Republicans can be stopped
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!!
kosh those who hadn't known that...i've little respect for them evil always overreaches
Jon, This is a pretty big victory
Yes it is, Kosh. I'm not diminishing it.
Paul Ryan said, "For the foreseeable future it (the ACA) is the law of the land."
Some of my friends, who may give Trump too much credit, think he forced the showdown because he wanted healthcare revision dropped so that he could move on to tax reform.
Impeachara ® Talk to your doctor to see if this medicine may help with symptoms of T.I.A.D.
In a Washington Post article from March 2016, a bipartisan cross-section of Trump Induced Anxiety Disorder sufferers describe coping with panic attacks, insomnia and a cluster of other symptoms one woman rightly summed up as “not a pathological response to a normal situation, but a normal response to a pathological situation.”
The problem with the ACA (OBAMACARE) is the same problem that attends Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, school integration and busing etc...
The state and local officials who vehemently oppose such policies and programs are the same people who are charged with the responsibility of implementing them.
Not much chance of success under such circumstances.
Terry, would a "public option" such as was briefly talked about in the discussion leading up to the ACA be helpful to either the public or the insurance companies?
Would a single payer system that took insurance companies out of the process help?
One fervent Trump supporter (who is typical in other ways) that I used to work with, had Obamacare, the premium doubled the following year, they dropped insurance and then got a "huge fine". When I talked to her about our granddaughter who could not get insurance before because she was born with kidneys that didn't work and had a transplant necessitating that her parents quit working so that she could get medicaid, this idiot started talking about her arthrititis and how she needed a doctor and Obamacare was too high. To be fair, she is not yet Medicare age and probably does have high premiums with little income
