Schumer says Democrats willing to work with GOP

Donald Trump has suffered a humiliating legislative defeat as Republicans were forced to pull their repeal of the Obamacare bill, prompting the US President to warn Americans that bad things are going to happen.

Ryan, R-Wis., on CBS "Face the Nation", said the failure of the AHCA will make tax reform that much more hard.

Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget and a former congressman from SC, said on "Meet the Press" that both the hard-right House Freedom Caucus and the moderate Tuesday Group share blame for sinking the American Health Care Act.

Rep. Ted Poe (R-Tex.) resigned Sunday from the coalition of 35 to 40 conservative House lawmakers in protest over the group's opposition to the Republican health-care bill that tanked in Congress on Friday.

Now Team Trump turns to tax reform, but Wall Street is nervously asking: can Trump deliver on any of his promises?

"I will not sugarcoat this, this is a disappointing day for us", Ryan told reporters Friday afternoon. The New York Times reports that Bannon kept on pushing President Donald Trump to pressure the health care vote to move forward so that an "enemies list" could be compiled of all those who voted against the measure. "He got right to the point". Under the amendment, the healthcare replacement bill no longer protects women or those with pre-existing conditions from price discrimination by insurance companies, and does not require insurance companies to cover prenatal, maternity, or newborn care, emergency visits, prescription drugs, hospitalization, outpatient care, mental health care, and more.

When asked how the White House viewed the Freedom Caucus after the group had seemed to be move the goalpost, a member familiar with the whip operation, said: "As I told a freshman member when he complained to me that Meadows stabbed him in the back previous year, 'I'm sorry you had to experience what has already happened to the rest of us'".

"No, not particularly. They're friends of mine".

"The best thing we can do, politically speaking, is let Obamacare explode".

Levin said the American Health Care Act benefits the wealthy but robs millions of Americans. We never said it was flawless. It also imposes tax penalties on uninsured Americans - many of them low- to moderate-income earners.

Republican leaders ordered a vote on his "Trumpcare" bill be pulled moments before it was due to take place as it became clear it was losing support.

But the G.O.P.is divided on whether the bill goes too far or not far enough and Democrats stand united against it.

"Yes this does make tax reform more hard", said Ryan. Ryan did not give a final whip count. They vowed that enough of their members would vote "no" to sink the bill if their demands weren't met.

It's not sustainable. There's no way out, Trump told reporters at the White House after the bill was withdrawn. The president relented, against the advice of his advisers, the official said.

"I like Speaker Ryan". He said the caucus was "let down" and "disappointed" by the final outcome of a drama that has gripped Washington for almost three weeks.

Having fought and won the presidential elections on the platform of repealing and replacing Obamacare, Trump said he honestly believe that the Democrats will come to the Republicans and say let's get together and get a great health care bill or plan that's really great for the people in this country.

Schumer's threat to filibuster has led to talk of Republicans using the so-called nuclear option to confirm Gorsuch's nomination, which would require him to be confirmed with a simple majority instead of 60 votes. So I'm disappointed. I'm a little surprised, to be honest with you.
