For the second straight day a vote on Rep. Paul Ryan’s substitute for the
UnAffordable Care Act was pushed back. This is thanks to the Republican Party’s House Freedom Caucus. They have been working on making Ryan’s bill true to the promises of the Republicans who ran last year and won; full repeal. And this bill is not a full repeal at all.
With all the lengthy negotiations by all the involved parties, Rep. Thomas Massie had planned to “change” his vote from “no” to “hell no.” Even Virginia’s 10th District Rep. Barbara Comstock planned to vote against it, which ought to tell you a lot. Great job to the conservative House Freedom Caucus. Keep working, this is not over by a long shot. Stay tuned for more.
