Huckabee: GOP 'Need to Get in Step With Their Own Party'

"There is a great deal of bipartisan consensus about what ails our tax code, and my hope is that our friends on the other side of the aisle will join with us in a serous way to address it", he said. Trump has maintained steady support among three quarters of Republicans, with his job approval now at 77% with his base. President Trump has been quick to criticize the failure to pass repeal and replace legislation and has threatened to end the cost-sharing payments provided by the government to insurers to help cover costs for the approximately 58 percent of marketplace customers who earn up to 200 percent of the federal poverty limit.

Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Thune noted that GOP lawmakers will have to bridge some policy disagreements on what direction they will take while crafting the legislation.

The Senate vote is over, but the need to reform health care remains, said Bishop Dewane, who urged the two political parties to get past their divisions and work for "the common good".

Until a comprehensive solution comes out of Capitol Hill, we think Trump should continue subsidies for the poor but end them immediately for members of Congress.

Senate filibusters are procedural delays aimed at killing bills. "It's telling that they did not take that option given how much they're willing to break from Senate traditions". Even if the Senate had passed a bill, it's not clear what approach to the issue could pass the House and get at least 50 votes in the Senate.

Republicans should have seen this coming.

Republican, Democratic and even bipartisan plans for reshaping parts of the Obama health care law are proliferating in Congress. They want to keep trying.

And there are no signs GOP leaders have chosen a fresh pathway after last week's collapse of their struggle to repeal and rewrite President Barack Obama's statute.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump was under the impression he could taunt GOP senators into passing some kind of health care bill. "If people are suffering, and they are, and they will continue to suffer because we have not repealed or replaced Obamacare, why shouldn't insurance companies similarly suffer?" And it's unclear how they would this week. Three Republicans opposed the measure. The group also backs another smart idea: creating a federal "stability fund" to help states deal with the high cost of providing insurance to individuals with pre-existing conditions.

"The president will not accept those who said it's, quote, 'Time to move on, '" White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said.

"If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!"

"Republicans don't have the votes for any significant repeal of Obamacare", Darrell West, the vice president and director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution, told Xinhua. Trump is threatening to withhold the Obamacare cost sharing subsidies.

McConnell is already moving to other business, having scheduled Senate consideration later Monday on a judicial nomination.
