"We have no choice, we have to repeal and replace Obamacare". This would, in theory, increase competition and drive down premiums for Americans. Many, especially non-profit Blue Cross-Blue Shield plans, say they are hesitant to abandon markets, especially if they have been there for decades. The bill would repeal all of Obamacare's subsidies, taxes, and penalties for those who don't buy insurance, but keeps in place Obamacare's rules about what insurers must cover. "I think we all agreed it is better to vote to repeal and replace".

In theory, at least, Trump could have anticipated some of this and responded to the collapse of the Senate bill by aligning himself with Capito and other repeal-skeptical Republicans. The legislation is named "The Better Care Reconciliation Act", but it's quite the opposite: People in the Medicaid program would receive worse care - or no care at all - well into the future. The bill has been fast-tracked in the Senate.

The difficulty of putting together 50 Senate votes (plus the tie-breaker, vice- president Mike Pence) to repeal the ACA is, most notably, an object lesson in constitutional constraints derived from the separation of powers.

John McCain, R-Ariz., had surgery last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye. McCain is still in Arizona recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot.

"Make no mistake, Paul Ryan can't turn back time and undo the damaging vote he imposed on his conference", said Meredith Kelly, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "We believe the best solution will be thoughtful, bipartisan and one that is a partnership between federal and state leadership".

The musician responded with a tweet of his own, saying, "Your president wants more people to die so he can embarrass Obama". In a parliamentary system, a prime minister with a majority can generally pass or repeal whatever legislation he or she chooses on the basis of party discipline. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., stood in the Affordable Care Act, "Obamacare", repeal and replace debate, Republican counterpart Sen.

And wait. The senator has done this before?

Trump's activism on the bill has come primarily over the phone.
