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.
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.

"No, not particularly. They're friends of mine".
"The best thing we can do, politically speaking, is let Obamacare explode".

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 There's no way out, Trump told reporters at the White House after the bill was withdrawn.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.
