Trump pledges 'easy' health care deal after defeat

This is the first time they are serving with a Republican in the White House to sign bills they might pass.

In recent days, the president has been out of sync with the two highest ranking Republicans in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.Trump and his aides have suggested reviving the push for a healthcare bill.

Will primary against Freedom Caucus members help Trump?

"When people say the Freedom Caucus is jeopardizing the president's agenda, guess what jeopardizes the president's agenda?" said Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a freshman Freedom Caucus member. Not one single member saw the bill until it was rolled out.

It's worth noting that while the Freedom Caucus certainly has been known to scuttle the GOP's best-laid plans in the past, it's far from clear that this is really what happened with the Obamacare repeal effort.

We shall see. After Republicans met yesterday, there was speculation that the House might try again to bridge differences between moderates and the Freedom Caucus.

Said Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., "We're probably going to need bipartisan votes to keep the government open". You've got to marginalize the conservatives as much as possible. "What gets us to yes from a more conservative side of the spectrum?"

Trump's critics say the documents would help determine whether Trump's investments and sprawling business empire pose conflicts of interest on policies involving tax, regulation, China, Russia and other issues.

"The freedom caucus is unique".

Roosevelt went on to list his economic bill of rights: the right to a "useful and remunerative job", the right to "adequate medical care", the right to "adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment", the right to "a good education", and the right to "earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation".

In an interview with CBS's Norah O'Donnell, which aired earlier in the day, House Speaker Paul Ryan discussed how he didn't like the President's threats to seek aid from Democrats.

It will become virtually impossible if the House sinks into another tussle over leadership. "Those people that put him and me in office expect us to repeal and replace Obamacare". To the extent that GOP mismanagement has a material effect on premiums and competition, it will be essential for Democrats to point to solutions Republicans are intentionally shunning, not just attack them for abdicating their obligation to faithfully execute the law. He threatened to make sure its members lost their 2018 elections, but that didn't convince them. She's a longtime political operative and was among many in the Trump administration who noticed with irritation that pro-Trump groups weren't engaged in the fight over health care.

NPR's Susan Davis noted Tuesday that congressional Republicans are insisting they are closer now to passing health care than they were Friday and aren't giving up, reversing course on the tone Ryan took Friday that Obamacare is now "the law of the land". Broken down by party, 35% of Republicans agreed, while 82% of Democrats said they feel the Federal Bureau of Investigation should intervene. His seeming hedge on the bill made it tough for the pro-Trump groups to know what to do, their directors argued.

Because the Freedom Caucus did not get their additional wishes - removal of the ban against pre-existing conditions, reinstatement of insurance benefit caps, removal of the benefit of children staying on their parents' insurance until they are 26 and all the Medicaid changes - they, too, did not support the bill in the end.

Even the president, who called the Freedom Caucus members his "friends" Friday, seems to have decided they're to blame for the collapse of the bill. Twenty-three years ago, another president ran into the rocks on major health care legislation.

Trump showed his displeasure towards the Freedom Caucus and other conservatives in a tweet on Sunday morning, saying their actions resulted in "Democrats smiling in D.C". The more you can marginalize this group, the less influence they can have, right?. I know that we are all going to make a deal on health care. "Do not worry, we are in very good shape!"

Minutes after Trump's post, his Republican critics took to Twitter to respond, in Trump-ese: "it's a swamp not a hot tub".
