It's full-steam ahead on tax reform ... with no details

Designed To Fail: Obamacare Insurers Plan To Hike Premiums 30% Commentary: Paging Dr. Cassidy — move on

"We didn't have 50 Republicans".

For one, it's pretty clear Republicans blame themselves for failing to repeal Obamacare, not, as some of them say publicly, Democrats. No, Mitch, there isn't a chance. Senate Democrats and three Republicans rejected the "skinny" repeal of the ACA with a vote 51-49. They can vow to fight the measure, to stop the Republicans from raising taxes on the donors and land-owners of Fairfield County.

"We aspire to get most of these big things done by the August recess, because that's when Congress does most of its legislating", Ryan told reporters in January. If we hadn't had the 60-vote rule during the early days of President Obama, this would be a far different federal government.

Notably, Senate Republicans aren't even trying to pretend Trump's demands matter anymore.

McCain urged his colleagues to produce a health care bill "that will be imperfect, full of compromises, and not very pleasing to implacable partisans on either side, but that might provide workable solutions to problems Americans are struggling with today".

The Kaiser Family Foundation estimated that if these CSR payments were stopped, insurance premiums on the individual markets would increase by 19 percent or higher. The caught-off-guard host asked Johnson directly if he thought the tumor affected McCain's judgment, and Johnson backed off some: "I don't know exactly what - we really thought - and again I don't want speak for any senator". This is a disaster scenario for millions of Americans.

Opposition to Obamacare had been an effective political foil for Republicans because it offered Republicans an opportunity to reach beyond their base and secure support from bread and butter voters who had been "losers" under the previous President's signature legislation.


At the same time, Sen. Roy Blunt, expressing the view of Senate GOP leaders.

What's next? Since Republicans control both Congress and the White House, it's their responsibility to ensure that the government doesn't default. Orrin Hatch of Utah told Politico.

Trump denounces such subsidies as "bailouts" for insurance companies and threatens to "implode" the marketplace by holding them back.

Even for conservative lawmakers' Republican voters, the wish to carry on from repealing Obamacare could be well warranted: Newsweek found at least 70 attempts by the GOP to repeal, diminish or otherwise reduce the legislation since it came into law in 2010.

Are the Republicans taking a page out of the Democrats' playbook and now counting on the alleged "stupidity of the American people" to give them a pass and retain their majority? One solid compromise proposal, from the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, is already on the table. There were rogue senators gumming up the works for other Republicans in health care reform, but with tax reform, resistance won't be rogue. Hardline leftists in their own party will call any Democrat who works with the GOP a soft-headed traitor. They know the system is now unsustainable. "They're waiting to invest, they're waiting to add additional jobs, and the longer tax reform is delayed, the less businesses are going to be able to continue to wait".

McConnell would have worked with all senators instead ofm only allowing Republicans to issue a new health care plan. But it's a start, and we can hope.
