Trump publicly stands by Ryan despite rumored discord

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 04:53

Despite reports that the White House planned to blame House Speaker Paul Ryan for the failure of the Republican health care bill, President Trump publicly praised the speaker’s handling of the legislation on Friday. Trump’s comments came after it was announced that Republicans would abandon efforts to pass the bill and shortly after Ryan visited the White House. According to a senior Trump administration official, Ryan suggested not holding a floor vote because not enough votes had been mustered to pass the legislation, and Trump agreed.

Republicans stand behind Paul Ryan after he fumbles first big vote

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 04:24

House Speaker Paul Ryan admitted in a surprisingly candid Friday press conference that his caucus was experiencing “growing pains” that caused him to fall short of delivering long-promised votes to repeal and replace Obamacare. “Yeah, we’re going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future,” Ryan told reporters. It was a stunning admission from the leader of a party that has been promising to repeal the Affordable Care Act for seven years and now controls the White House and both houses of Congress.

The coincidences mount, as another Putin critic is shot dead

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 03:42

An outspoken critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin was shot dead in broad daylight in Kiev Thursday, just two days after a lawyer for the family of a slain Russian whistleblower was injured in a mysterious fall from his fourth-story apartment near Moscow. Denis Voronenkov was a former Russian Communist Party member who’d become increasingly critical of Putin’s policies after fleeing to Ukraine in 2016. As it has after similar incidents, the Kremlin swiftly rejected any suggestion it was involved in Voronenkov’s murder.

Why Manafort’s offer to cooperate in probe is less than meets the eye

Sat, 03/25/2017 - 02:20

WASHINGTON — A surprise offer by Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager, to “provide information” to congressional committees investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia may be far more limited than it first appeared, according to congressional sources and others familiar with the matter. “Paul Manafort to Testify Before House Intelligence Panel,” read the headline in the New York Times.

Are rape, incest God’s will? GOP lawmaker fumbles answer

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 22:12

Defending a controversial bill that would put extreme limitations on access to abortion, an Oklahoma state lawmaker reluctantly admitted he believes that rape and incest may represent the will of God. Rep. George Faught, a Republican from Oklahoma’s 14th District, is the author of House Bill 1549, or the “Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2017.” The bill proposes to prohibit abortions on the basis of genetic anomalies, such as Down syndrome. The debate over the bill Tuesday got sidetracked into a discussion of the morality of abortion in cases of rape and incest.

GOP short of votes on health care bill as deadline looms

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 22:10

House Republicans on Friday appeared to be short of the votes they need to pass a Donald Trump-pushed bill to overhaul the nation’s health care system mere hours before they were scheduled to vote on the package. The Associated Press reported early Friday afternoon that the bill had yet to obtain enough votes to pass, according to House lawmakers and staffers, with a vote scheduled for 3:30 p.m. that afternoon. Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., left the Capitol for the White House to brief Trump on his progress whipping votes for the American Health Care Act, which would repeal Obamacare and replace it with a Republican alternative that the House caucus’ conservative and moderate wings have objected to.

Coulter, Breitbart, Drudge torch health care bill backed by Trump

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 21:23

With the vote on the American Health Care Act looming, conservative media personalities and outlets that were backers of President Trump throughout the campaign are attacking the Obamacare replacement bill the White House supports. Ann Coulter, right-wing provocateur and an avid supporter of the Trump campaign, has been attacking the bill as “Obamacare Lite” since its text became public, hammering House Speaker Paul Ryan along the way. “Could some investigative reporter write a piece explaining why Ryan is so hellbent on this deeply unpopular healthcare bill?” she wrote earlier this week, before criticizing Trump and Ryan for making tax cuts next on their legislative agenda instead of trade and immigration.

Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the head of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, went out of his way to praise President Trump’s negotiating skills when announcing to reporters Thursday that there were still “30 to 40” House members whom the White House had failed to woo in time for the planned health care vote that evening. “We would not be where we are today even considering this if it were not for President Trump’s personal involvement,” Meadows said, minutes after House leaders announced they were scrapping their much-touted plan to vote Thursday on the repeal-and-replace measure.

Spicer scolds wary GOP over ‘free votes’ to repeal Obamacare

Fri, 03/24/2017 - 01:25

Shortly before Republican leaders postponed a vote on repealing and replacing Obamacare, the White House on Thursday scolded Republicans who took “free votes” to roll back the law while President Barack Obama was in office, but who now balk at supporting President Trump’s health care plan. “You’ve taken a bunch of these free votes when it didn’t matter, because you didn’t have a Republican president. “Well, this is a live ball now, and this is for real, and we’re going to do what we pledged to the American people — and keep our word,” Spicer told reporters at his daily briefing.
