Trump aide urges defeat of Michigan member of Freedom Caucus

House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a CNN interview in March that Congress would pass a debt ceiling increase and avoid default.

Administration officials met with a number of members from the moderate caucus, the Tuesday Group, earlier in the day.

"I did not get the message from our conference this morning that we're nearing the finish on health care", he said.

The establishment Republican leadership version of that calumny was spoken recently by Representative Kevin Cramer, Republican of North Dakota, who told the New York Times, "We have to do some soul-searching internally to determine whether or not we are even capable of functioning as a governing body..."

Moderates expressed a reluctance to vote quickly on a new bill. They benefit from keeping things exactly as they are.

"The president and I remain confident that working with the Congress we will repeal and replace Obamacare with health care reform that will work for the American people and work for the American economy", he said.

The outing to Trump National Golf Club came hours after Trump tweeted that talks on replacing the law have been going on and "will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck". "There's no deal in principle". Moderate Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J., and conservative Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., each said they remained "no" votes, with Brooks saying states should be allowed to opt out of Obama's insurance requirements without seeking federal permission. Creating a system where the states could apply for a waiver that would be reviewed by the Department of Health and Human Services could convince some to sign on, he said, as well as more state aid to subsidize coverage for the very sick.

Republican aides are reeling from the implosion of their party's attempt to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, according to the latest CQ Roll Call Capitol Insiders Survey. "So, maybe instead of hiding the bill away, rolling it out four weeks ago, having hearings where there are no witnesses who actually testify, where there are no amendments allowed to be offered, no amendments accepted, maybe we need to do the process right, and maybe, if we do, we will develop a product that more than 17 percent of the country actually approves of", he said.

Then there is the charge of currency manipulation, which Candidate Trump liked to beat China with on the campaign trail. In the wake of the missile test, US General Jack Keane said bombing North Korea "may be the only option left".

"Tweets and statements and blame don't change facts", Jordan stated.

In 1938, for example, President Franklin D. Roosevelt waged a similar intervention in several Democratic primary elections to purge the party of conservative incumbents who opposed parts of Roosevelt's New Deal.

Meadows said lifetime and annual caps weren't discussed explicitly, because they aren't the main drivers of insurance premium costs.

Many Republicans, led by President Donald Trump, have insisted that the Affordable Care Act, which has expanded coverage to more than 20 million Americans, is failing and needs to immediately be repealed.

Meadows said the "hope" is that a vote could occur before the recess, but they're not setting any artificial deadlines. He said it would be premature to say where the legislation stands or how much support it could garner.

Sen. Joe Donnelly and U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks, both representing IN, could also play important roles IN modifying the health-care law.

Freedom Caucus leaders said they're open to the idea but want to see the legislative text.

If you're someone who cares about smaller government and protecting individual liberty, you will find no better allies in the House than the members of the House Freedom Caucus.
