House GOP Looks at Repeal Plan B

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Washington (CNN)Republicans insisted they had no “Plan B” for their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. But a few days later, after crashing into what might be the new third rail of American politics, Republicans are talking publicly and privately about … Plan B.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke with several House members over the weekend to discuss a path forward, a senior administration official and Republican official with knowledge of the discussions told CNN. And House Speaker Paul Ryan — despite saying Friday that “Obamacare is the law of the land” — appears ready to keep going as well.

Trump himself isn’t giving up.

“I know we’re going to make a deal on health care, that’s such an easy one,” Trump told a bipartisan group of senators and spouses at a White House reception Tuesday night.

    Let’s hope that this attempt is not drawn up in a sealed room and given 18 days to pass; that it actually repeals ObozoCare; and that it allows consumers to purchase plans which make sense for them; and finally, that Federal regulation disappears in favor of State regulation, which worked very well for the first couple of hundred years here.
