"Talks on Repealing and Replacing Obamacare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck", Trump tweeted.
Over the weekend, the attacks became a bit more specific when Dan Scavino Jr., Trump's director of social media, went after caucus member and libertarian fave, Rep. Justin Amash of MI. The bill to end Obamacare and replace it with another health insurance system was withdrawn on March 24 by Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan before it came up for a floor vote, given the lack of support among very conservative GOP factions, Efe news reported. It really was just "Obamacare-lite".
One unnamed White House official told reporters, "Our view is: There's nothing more clarifying as the smell of Air Force One jet fuel". "House Freedom Caucus members held the line, and the data show that is precisely what their constituents wanted", Wilson wrote in an analysis.
The latest proposals would mean that Trump is reneging on a promise to uphold one of the law's most popular provisions: that insurers can not discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions. (CHQ emphasis) An NPR analysis found that the roughly 30 members of the conservative caucus won reelection by an average of nearly 37 points.
"Justin Amash is a good friend and one of the most principled members of Congress", Jordan said.
Vice President Mike Pence was governor of Indiana when the highly successful Healthy Indiana Plan 2.0 was introduced, and the architect of HIP 2.0, Seema Verma, was appointed by President Trump to be the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The Trump administration is unlikely to renew its push to repeal and replace the ACA through a single bill like the AHCA, but may attempt to water down elements of healthcare reform through administrative actions created to reduce federal subsidies and weaken health insurance exchanges. He did say he would cut spending, audit the Federal Reserve and even end America's costly habit of nation building overseas as our infrastructure suffers at home. Paul acknowledged that Trump and his allies were still committed to trying to get House leadership's bill through.
Verizon sets up 'Oath' to handle Yahoo and AOL
Verizon will also be investing in Yahoo and the Sunnyvale, Calif., campus, and that AOL core brands will also be moving there. A rep for Yahoo declined to comment beyond a statement from Mayer when the Verizon deal was first announced a year ago .
This group has not only felt outside of the process, but has spent much of the past two weeks ripping the Freedom Caucus at every opportunity. I know the vice president has been actively engaged, as well as other members of the staff, with members of the House in particular.
Several caucus members, who tend to represent safely Republican districts, tweeted back defiantly. They benefit from keeping things exactly as they are.
Some celebrated and others mourned the demise of the American Health Care Act when Speaker of the House Paul Ryan failed to secure enough support to bring it to a vote.
So, is this something Trump still wants to do?
However, a source familiar with internal House Republican deliberations said that healthcare, not tax reform, now topped the House agenda and that the healthcare effort was being driven by the White House.
But they could be voting blind. Most politicians fear and fight change. At one point, the 2016 Democratic nominee joked, "Here I go again, talking about research, evidence, and facts". That makes absolutely no sense, and would also irretrievably undermine the primary reason millions of Americans voted for Trump in the first place.
And despite his campaign promises, Trump once again went golfing yesterday, hitting the links at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.
