From Ralph King at the Main Street Patriots blog:
While we applaud some members of the GOP fighting to make Speaker Ryan’s bill better – had some of them fought this hard against him becoming Speaker – we would not be in the position we are today.
In the Senate, Mitch McConnell has already said he is open for amendments. In addition, as proposed by Rep. Louie Gohmert, the “” needs to be thrown out so that more amendments are allowed during the reconciliation process.
If amendments are allowed in both the House & the Senate, and if “We the People” remain engaged, then hopefully something acceptable can be cobbled together. President Trump is a deal maker – and if we do not get a good deal, we can urge him to use his pen and veto the final version of the bill.
