What's the betting line on the vote tomorrow? Is it on or off?

I'm betting Ryan wants to postpone it but most GOPeers want it to go, to fail, and to allow them to move on to other shit. Like tax cuts.

1. I was thinking that if it was postponed then we know for sure they don't have the votes

But you say that Ryan wanted to postpone but can't. Where did you learn this?

Btw, he's the Speaker so he's in charge and should decide for himself. If it's fact that he's allowing himself to be influenced by his Party then he's even more of a weak leader than I imagined.

3. I'm speculating that Ryan wants to postpone it but is afraid of his caucus

6. If he can't convince his caucus that the water is wet he's got no leadership skills at all

I haven't been able to watch the committee hearings this week. No stomach for it. But I want to watch this vote tomorrow. Probably because it's a lose-lose for the GOP.

Earlier I read how one compromise Trump agreed to recently, maybe today, was to remove the basic services required by the ACA. Really?

Omg, Stinky, the Republicans will be eviscerated if this turd passes. Pass the popcorn.

2. They are tweaking it and plan on tweaking it all night....

They are trying to turn the Freedumb caucus. They want insurance that doesn't cover pregnancy, insurance that doesn't kids, insurance that doesn't cover cancer.

Here is a twitter thread. I don't know if this guy is covering it in real time or what the deal is. Lots of insurance mumbo jumbo, so I assume they know what they're talking about

4. I hesitate to say. It really could go either way.

The GOP is slime.

7. Republicans have been quite consistent in advocating repeal of the ACA's benefit requirements.
