House GOP pours cold water over new Trumpcare rumors

Source: Axios

Senior Republican congressional sources are pouring cold water over anonymous comments by White House officials to WaPo reporter Robert Costa that a new Trumpcare vote could happen as soon as next Wednesday.

That's been made abundantly clear to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, and a senior administration source tells me the vote next week is unlikely and he's unclear who told the press it could happen on Wednesday.

One senior House source texted Axios: "You know there will not be a vote next Wednesday, right?"

. . .

And from a senior GOP aide: "The question is whether it can get 216 votes in the House and the answer isn't clear at this time. There is no legislative text and therefore no agreement to do a whip count on."

I think that they may be getting the message on the ACA.

5. What a shallow, dimwitted fool

obsessed with his 100-day "report card"



So, let's enact sh*tty legislation just to satisfy dump's craving for a "win"



Apparently we just need to get past Day 100 and then he'll lose interest, at least for a while, in wrecking the ACA.

Someone needs to sneak a calendar into the Oval Office with a few days missing so that he thinks he's at Day 100 ASAP.

"Donald Trump Says He'll Have His Own Obamacare ‘Replacement Plan' Soon"

10. I'm still worried

Maybe it just my pessimistic attitude, but I still think they will wreck the whole program eventually, one way or another.

Peace
