SC Congressional GOP hopeful after demise of Trumpcare

House Democrats, who unanimously opposed the Republican repeal, were meeting Wednesday to come up with their own proposals for improving the law while also calling on Republicans to fix rather than repeal.

'Doesn't it just make you sick?,' the controversial Trump-supporter said. "Our Democratic friends ought to be pretty happy about that because we have the existing law in place and I think we're just gonna have to see how that works out". He asked them to reflect on the party's failure.

'Their driving desire to block all things Republican branded, no matter what it means for the American people, is sickening. "We're going to press on until we get it done".

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday the president and his aides have received calls from unnamed Democrats offering to work with the administration.

They're still contending with the "balancing act" that doomed the first effort, in which efforts to mollify restive conservatives angered centrists who balked after budget scorekeepers said the plan would result in 24 million fewer people holding insurance after a decade.

Speaking after the defeat in the Oval Office, Trump blamed Democrats for the failure of the bill despite opposition from his own side blocking its passage.

US stock indexes wavering between small gains and losses
Dow Jones Industrial Average surged almost 70 points, aided by Goldman Sachs & United Health contributing the most to the gains. The health care information technology company slid 2.7 per cent after it reported disappointing fourth-quarter revenue.

"To my Democrat colleagues who were celebrating Friday's action, I think their celebration is premature", House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, said. But Republicans are really far apart right now on what they want that bill to accomplish. "It depends on if they take a good path or a bad path", he said in an interview. We learned a lot about loyalty'.

It was four days ago that Ryan abruptly canceled that vote on the GOP bill annulling much of President Barack Obama's 2010 law. More importantly, moderate Republicans let it be known that they were not willing to jeopardize the health-care coverage their constituents are receiving through the insurance exchanges and Medicaid. Cory Booker and Robert Menendez have a deal for President Donald Trump: They'll work with him on repairs to the Affordable Care Act if he agrees not to push for repealing the entire law.

The House Freedom Caucus has no official list of members, but the group is chaired by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C. "We are going to move on with rest of our agenda, keep that on track, while we work the health care problem", he said.

Trump seemed eager to move onto something new. but he did tweet that he would make a deal with Democrats once Obamacare bites the dust. While congressional GOP leaders and Trump are intent on moving to reform the tax code, some in the rank-and-file want to go back to the drawing board on health care.

"Finding a solution is still elusive", said Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden, the Oregon Republican who wrote much of the initial plan.

Kristen Cunningham, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma insurer's parent company, Health Care Service Corp., said no final decisions have been made about next year.
