ObamaCare repeal is dead — long live ObamaCare repeal

“While President Trump has over the course of less than a week vacillated between ‘I’m moving on’ and ‘a deal is near,’ Republican congressmen are ignoring the White House. Mr. Trump has done all the cajoling and arm-twisting he needs to do. Most Republicans are already as motivated as they can be to repeal and replace Obamacare. At this point, more presidential involvement is not only unneeded, but would serve only to slow down the process. Despite President Trump’s back-and-forth, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s depressing statement that the Obamacare ‘status quo … (will) go forward, regretfully,’ every House member I spoke with believes that an improved measure will come up for a vote in less than a month, perhaps in just one to two weeks.” (03/29/17)
