“The objective of the American Health Care Act was not to write into law the best possible conservative reform of health care.
The coverage losses predicted by CBO forced Republican congressmen to face up to the fact that universal coverage has never been a goal of the conservative movement or the GOP.
The wiser course of action might be for the Congress to take its time, allow the relevant committees to write legislation with the input of all the various factions, and not to rush to meet some arbitrary August deadline. Don’t write laws for the Senate parliamentarian, write them for your constituents.” (That right – sing it again Sam – something congress RARELY DOES).
The SPEAKER placed “PROCEDURE BEFORE POLICY” and knew what he was doing. The SPEAKER drove this legislation “RIGHT INTO THE SWAMP”!!!!!!!!!
I say POTUS better get some NEW ADVISORS who knows how to move legislation AND COUNT VOTES and NOT A SPEAKER WHO IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO RUIN THIS LEGISLATION AND OTHER BILLS. This SPEAKER takes his direction from the LOBBYIST.
