GOP Health Care Bill Is Pulled!!!!!! Ryan Concedes: Yes, Things Need To Be Changed For Obamacare Replacement Bill To Pass The House

Ryan Concedes: Yes, Things Need To Be Changed For Obamacare Replacement Bill To Pass The House

House Speaker Paul Ryan admitted that the GOP health care replacement bill has to change in order for it to pass the House. The Congressional Budget Office scored the legislation and found that premiums wouldn’t be curbed, and that over 20 million people would be without insurance by 2020. That prompted moderate Republicans to start pulling support. Conservatives already didn’t like it, describing it as Obamacare lite. The most expensive portion, Medicaid expansion, was left intact. To make the bill more palatable, the Republican Study Committee offered two amendments that would add work requirements and cap new Medicaid enrollment by 2018. Yet, that proved to be another obstacle for moderate GOP lawmakers. Democrats are unified against it. Right now, this bill is on life support, despite Ryan being confident that he would get 218 votes to pass this legislation.

In the Senate, Sens. Rob Portman (R-OH), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Cory Gardner (R-CO), and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stating that Medicaid expansion has to remain untouched for their support. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) warned his House colleagues that voting on a bill that has no shot in the Senate could nuke the Republican majority. As conservatives stormed Congress to remind Republicans what they promised concerning Obamacare yesterday, I’m sure they’d be a little happier about this development from the speaker. It looks like it’s no longer a binary choice, though Ryan wouldn’t discuss the details of what's going to be changed in the bill (via WaPo):

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Wednesday that his health-care proposal must change to pass the House, marking a significant retreat from his earlier position that the carefully crafted legislation would fail if altered.

The shift came after a private meeting of House Republicans from which Ryan (R-Wis.) emerged to tell reporters that his proposal to revise the Affordable Care Act would “incorporate feedback” from the rank-and-file. Ryan attributed the change of strategy to the effect of an analysis issued Monday by the Congressional Budget Office. Among other details prompting a fresh round of criticism of the proposal was a projection that 14 million fewer Americans would be insured after one year under the Republican plan.

Ryan backed away Wednesday from his previous rhetoric of calling the measure’s fate a “binary choice” for Republican lawmakers.

“Now that we have our score . . . we can make some necessary improvements and refinements to the bill,” he said, referring to the CBO’s estimate of the effect on the number of those covered by health insurance and what the GOP proposal would cost.

Ryan did not detail what changes are under consideration.

Being perfect losers became a way of life for our Republicans in congress, and believe it or not most of those Republicans were very comfortable in their loser status.

Well said.  And, why shouldn't they be?  They are trained and controlled by Alinsky methods but still get enough food and water each day to present a healthy appearance.  They disappoint because they do not have common, central principles around which they can unite.  They try to fight the democrat party individually and piecemeal and get defeated in detail at every encounter.

Good post Jerome. The republican elites are very comfortable spending our hard earned taxpayers money, while supporting and backing the lobbyist that have kept them in power, and made them rich.

This from one of my doctor friends on twitter. Every doctor I follow feels the same way.

Louie Gohmert explodes over GOP leadership’s ‘lie’ to Trump, Freedom Caucus about health care bill


Louie Gohmert explodes over GOP leadership’s ‘lie’ to Trump, Freedom Caucus about health care bill

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) explained on Fox News Saturday that the attitude of GOP leadership and the White House following their failure to replace Obamacare on Friday is unacceptable.

Detailing how Obamacare has hurt the majority of Americans, especially the elderly, on “Fox and Friends Weekend,” Gohmert said that it appears the GOP leadership’s current strategy is “we’re gonna hurt our elderly folks a little more, but don’t worry.”

Gohmert, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said the GOP Obamacare replacement — which was widely criticised for being a watered down version of Obamacare — was “based on a lie.”

According to Gohmert, this was the lie: “We can’t do what you guys want to do because the parliamentarian won’t allow us to do it. Now, we can’t check with the parliamentarian until we pass the bill in the House, send it to the Senate, and then the parliamentarian can rule.”

“The parliamentarian never rules! That’s a lie!” Gohmert exclaimed.

Gohmert said that the House Freedom Caucus was told that language repealing Obamacare regulations such as the “essential health benefits” could not be included in the House bill because it would endanger the Senate’s ability to pass it with a 51-vote simple majority. He explained that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said that Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough could rule to strip the bill of those measures before a Senate vote and that’s why they couldn’t be included in the bill.

“But they never checked with the parliamentarian,” Gohmert said. “[Sen.] Mike Lee checked and it was all fine.”

When asked by Fox host Brian Kilmeade if he has lost confidence in Ryan as the GOP leader, Gohmert said he wasn’t sure.

“I don’t know. We have to learn from this disastrous mistake that was based on something that … they told the president repeatedly something that was not true,” Gohmert said.

“This was a bad bill because we read it, we knew what was in it, too many people did not,” he concluded.
