As GOP schism grows, Trump attacks fellow Republicans

As GOP schism grows, Trump attacks fellow Republicans

How long will it be before the Freedom Caucus suffers the same fate and is described by the president as a bunch of Fake Republicans? "We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!", Trump tweeted. Could it be that the administration's next step in turning the screw is to turn Trump's Twitter on these alleged rebels?

"The Freedom Caucus did [President Trump] a grave disservice by killing the process of this bill, moving this bill forward", Rove said of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Fox News's "America's Newsroom". And if the Freedom Caucus and Louie Gohmert killed that BILL.THEN THANK YOU.

Another Freedom Caucus member, Rep. Justin Amash of MI, was less diplomatic in his response to the president's missive, tweeting: "It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump". "I share his frustration", he told reporters Thursday. Trump's tweet attacking the House Freedom Caucus serves to underline that he's not policy-savvy, nor is he conservative where healthcare is concerned.

"I don't want that to happen", Ryan told the CBS program "This Morning" program, referring to Trump's offer to work with Democrats.Some conservatives outside the Freedom Caucus bristled at Trump's remarks about the bloc."I think he's still just negotiating", said Representative Thomas Massie, a Kentucky conservative who is not in the Freedom Caucus but close to some of its members.Asked if this was a productive strategy by Trump to get Freedom Caucus members on board, Massie said, "We're on his side". Trump originally did not blame the group, saying Friday after the bill collapsed, "I'm not betrayed".

Trump's efforts to repeal and replace President Barack Obama's signature health care law fell short last week, after he and House Speaker Paul Ryan failed to convince a number of House lawmakers, including most of the Freedom Caucus, to vote in their favor.

Police charged Rodriguez with three complaints of first-degree murder and three complaints of first-degree burglary. He said he did not know whether Rodriguez had an attorney.

Ryan and a top Senate Republican engaged in a brief public spat Thursday about comments Ryan made earlier in the morning, seeming to suggest Trump should not try to work with Democrats.

Ryan talked them out of demanding the vote, saying it would endanger members of their own party.

But Ryan said that wouldn't be a good outcome for the GOP. The White House accused the conservative group of moving the goalposts during negotiations and Trump has called out the caucus publicly over the weekend as well. After he stepped down, Freedom Caucus members circulated a questionnaire revealing what they wanted to see in a new speaker, including a question that was a litmus test for the new speaker: "Would you ensure that the House-passed appropriations bills do not contain funding for Planned Parenthood, unconstitutional amnesty, the Iran deal and ObamaCare?".

Brat defeated former Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a 2014 primary - one of the biggest upsets in recent political history. The called age-based tax credits in the bill meant to help people buy medical insurance an unwise new federal entitlement. "There was never a meeting scheduled with the Freedom Caucus". "I don't think there's a more critical vote for the Freedom Caucus than this".

Kelly Stanger of Lowell, Michigan, argued that conservatives were prevented from contributing to the bill, and said she'd vote again for Amash. "We just feel like he's been misled on Swampcare", referring to the healthcare legislation championed by Ryan.Amash depicted Trump as now beholden to the Washington establishment."It didn't take long for the swamp to drain @realDonaldTrump", Amash wrote on Twitter.
