Congress seen as not likely to pass tax overhaul quickly

AP-NORC Poll Majority of Americans favor Russia probe

Rand also said to reporters after the match, which included the participation of White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, Fox News reported: "We did talk about some health care reform".

The problem for President Trump, former Speaker Boehner, current Speaker Paul Ryan and establishment Republicans like North Dakota's Representative Cramer is that Freedom Caucus opposition to their dime store Democrat policies is not about "governing", it is about "representing" what their constituents want the federal government to do or not do.

Trump tweeted on Sunday: "Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck".

Trump has been critical of the Freedom Caucus and the majority of its roughly 35 members who were influential in stopping a vote on House Republican leadership's overhaul plan. Tom MacArthur and Leonard Lance were opposite sides when the House debated legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act with an alternative that would leave 500,000 fewer NewJersey residents without health insurance.

However, after his tweet Scavino changed the cover photo of his Twitter account, which included a picture of President Trump speaking at a podium with the presidential seal.

But the not-so-veiled threats by the president are likely to have little impact in these conservative districts, where most members easily outperformed Trump and, instead, would have faced more viable primary threats from the right if they had backed the deeply unpopular Obamacare bill. I said, 'Don't take a vote, ' and we will see what happens. The White House suggested it would be one way to pay for the proposed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Mourinho: We can't cry over players who are not available
The match continued in the same pattern after the break with West Brom soaking up United's timid attacking play. Before and after they are on holidays. "One team had the ball, one team didn't".

There's stumbling out of the gate, and then there's what Republicans just did on health care.

The back-and-forth prompted Freedom Caucus member Raul Labrador to chime in with criticism of Scavino, asking if the tweet was an April Fools' Day joke. But after the Obamacare "repeal and replace" bill fell short of the votes it needed, Ryan was struggling to explain why.

"Justin Amash is a good friend and one of the most principled members of Congress", said Jim Jordan of OH, on CNN's State of the Union. It's unclear how they'd do that without compromising with Democrats, who now have little motivation to help Republicans.

Trump has also attacked Democrats for not backing the bill, predicting that Obamacare will "implode".

According to former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, Trump's popularity collapse makes it easy for Republicans to tend to their own business and challenge the president without worry that he can hurt their reelection prospects. If you go to Heritage and look at their score, I think he's at about a 53 right now.

Freedom Caucus lawmakers responded in kind. "We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!"
