Blaming conservatives, Trump signals new openness to Dems

David Bozell, president of ForAmerica, said Republicans had eight years to fashion a repeal bill and a GOP replacement, and the first time they were in a position to hold a nonsymbolic vote on a plan that could be enacted, they failed.

"To my Democrat colleagues who were celebrating Friday's action, I think their celebration is premature", House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, said. He had never tweeted about the group before.

Before the bill was pulled, Trump tweeted at the Freedom Caucus, saying Planned Parenthood funding would continue if they blocked the legislation. The group counted 36 members in 2015, according to Pew Research Center.

In additional fallout from the jarring setback, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, said he was leaving the caucus.

He said Britain called on Russian Federation to do everything possible to bring about a "political settlement in Syria". Iran's president Hassan Rouhani argued the move meant "all the terrorists in Syria are celebrating this U.S. attack".

"When we're in Florida, I will lay out the path forward on healthcare and all the rest of the agenda", Ryan reportedly said on a call with donors, referring to a donor retreat scheduled for later this week. She went on to blame the quick pace at which Republicans had tried to push the bill and implicated the House Freedom Caucus for not compromising enough. "I think more so now than ever, it's time for both parties to come together and get to real reforms in this country".

The bill would have erased much of President Barack Obama's 2010 health care overhaul. Most of the group's roughly three dozen members opposed the health care measure. "And so, we're going to get this right", Speaker Ryan said. That the deal was so close suggests that House leaders could move quickly to bring the bill back to the floor with the inclusion of language that repeals more of Obamacare's insurance regulations, such as federal mandates to cover comprehensive health benefits; actuarial values denoting different tiers of coverage; and community rating requirements preventing insurers from charging lower premiums for younger, healthier consumers. President Donald Trump and other top Republicans are blaming them for the bill's collapse.

"The goalposts kept getting moved", Poe said.

But Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., a Freedom Caucus member, said on CNN that Trump got bad advice "from some in leadership who said that some of us should not even exist up here".

Into the future, such reuse will be critical to making SpaceX's more ambitious plans (such Mars missions) an economic possibility. The rocket booster that was launched on Thursday, however, will be donated to the Cape Canaveral Spaceport for display, he said.

"My hope is that Democrats will quit gloating at our inability to get it done on a party-line basis and join us in fixing" Obama's law, Cornyn said.

His previous roles were as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, where he helped orchestrate passage of fast-track trade authority, though he wasn't able to get the Trans-Pacific Partnership through, and as chairman of the House Budget Committee, where he wrote blueprints that called for trimming spending. Other, nonbudgetary bills require at least 60 votes to avoid the prospect of a filibuster.

Trump had courted Freedom Caucus lawmakers intensively. "That's not presidential", he said, "that's petulance". "That's how we do things on the battlefield, that's how things should be done here", said freshman Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., an Army veteran who lost both legs after being wounded in Afghanistan. When, after President Trump's election, with a willing president, they finally had the chance to begin the dismantling of the ACA - which any reasonable person would agree would take a transition period to allow insurance markets and providers to adjust to a new normal - the Republicans choked.
