House Delays Vote
The House delays vote to repeal and replace the ACA with the AHCA yesterday due to a lack of votes needed to pass.
With no support from the Democrat side of the aisle, and no consensus from the Republican side, as the Freedom Caucus demands deeper cuts to budgetary costs, and moderate conservatives voice concerns that the bill will leave far too many currently insured Americans uninsured, there seems to be little chance of the AHCA passing the house.
Meanwhile the executive branch has sent an ultimatum to congress, pass the bill, or move on. (https://www.yahoo.com/news/gop-health-bill-brink-hours-080216556.html) It seems there is little patience for debate and little room for compromise in Washington in regards to the AHCA.
If the bill does pass The House as is, many feel it will be left to The Senate to amend the bill further to allow it to pass through the Senate with the need votes. However, Senate leader Rand Paul seems to leave little room for that possibility as he has predicted the House will be forced to pull the bill.(https://tiny.iavian.net/fuwv)
