Despite failing to bring the House to a vote on the issue of repealing the ACA the first time, Republicans in the House of Representatives are re-considering bringing the ineffective bill back for a vote. The long-awaited bill was pulled only 30 minutes before voting was scheduled to commence, and any changes made since are unclear. Bloomberg reports:
“Members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, who helped derail the bill, have been talking with some Republican moderate holdouts in an effort to identify changes that could bring them on board with the measure.
The renewed discussion comes after President Donald Trump and Republican leaders in Congress said they would move on to issues like a tax overhaul in the wake of last week’s drama…”
With a two week recess approaching, Republicans would like to return home with a win, but even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seems ready to move on from a measure many consider dead.
