    My 2 centences . . . Trump negotiations added a net loss of votes for Ryancare Phase One version 207B - version 207C comes out this morning and then with the last night procedural vote "Same Day Rule" means they debate and vote on this version Friday afternoon. Priebus and Bannon got on Ryan's arse last night, and Trump demanded they vote, Ryan didn't want to be thrown in the fryer just yet. The pig with lipstick is getting roasted today it seems. Trump will sign whatever future Obamacare GOP repeal legislation comes to his desk - he won't veto it -

    Not how I read/watched it . . . Trump wants the vote now for Ryan's plan - he is done negotiating for Ryan. It seems they know it's going down, and Ryan is reluctant to have the vote at all. Within the first 100 days Trump/Rand will have Ryan gone as Speaker.

    If you lapse for 63 days of insurance coverage, Ryan's plan is more like "SuperObamacare" or "ObamacarePlus" - the mandate (penalty) is bigger, but not paid to the US but rather to an insurance monopoly. Any vote tomorrow Friday should be for removal of the Speaker of the House.

    Saying only some procedural vote at 8pm . . . Ryan's "Thursday is the big day" So, Rand was right. GOP leaders postpone vote on healthcare overhaul House GOP leaders postponed a vote Thursday on legislation to overhaul the Affordable Care Act amid a Republican revolt that raised doubts about the fate of the measure.

    Of course there is no back up plan B yet . . . That was Ryan's strategy - keep it secret then try to ram this unconstitutional insurance cartel mandate down our throats with his and Mitch McConnell's "This way or the highway."

    Remind them they could just vote "present" . . . one Democrat won't be present due to a family funeral so Ryan's majority number needed went down one supposedly (to 216 ?) If any representative votes present, it doesn't change the total number of yes votes needed to reach the majority that Ryan seeks.

    Attack Near U.K. Parliament Kills 3; Panic on Westminster Bridge The driver of a large vehicle mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, which leads to Parliament, before crashing into a railing. After the crash, at least one man left the vehicle, and then approached Parliament, where he stabbed an armed police officer to death. Prime Minister Theresa May was rushed into a vehicle and spirited back to her office, where her aides reported that she was safe. Mrs. May spoke with President Trump, and was scheduled to lead a crisis-response meeting of her Cabinet on Wednesday evening. Tobias Ellwood, a minister in the Foreign Office, tried to save the life of the stabbed police officer by giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, but the officer died.

    It seems like Meadows or another Congressman could introduce a vote to vacate Ryan's position as speaker pretty quickly. If Ryan is running ads against fellow GOP in their home districts to get them out of Congress in 2018, I'd say "fair ball". "Rep. Paul Ryan, Boehner's eventual successor, initially stated that he would seek the Speakership only if changes were made to the rule. A spokesperson for Ryan stated in October, "No matter who is speaker, they cannot be successful with this weapon pointed at them all the time." The House Freedom Caucus, however, objected and reportedly called the condition a "non-starter." Shortly thereafter, Ryan—who was elected speaker on October 29 (2015)—dropped the condition and agreed with the Freedom Caucus to

    Rand : HFC is a principled bunch - Trump calls/etc. and the Ryan(and I add Romney) machine running ads against House Freedonm Caucus in their districts is only solidifying their opposition to Ryan and his plan. Rand has talked to the President three times this week and the VP twice so doesn't get cornered by Erin Burnett's questioning.

    So it is not a "tax" this time - exactly what enabled the squeaky 5-4 Supreme Court decision that Obamacare was constitutional.

    Exactly the opposite. Their constituents voted them in - like they also voted for Trump in part - to repeal Obamacare. Ryancare/ObamacareLite doesn't do that - Ryan already lost on this old folks voucher plan in 2012 as the GOP nominee for VP/President of Senate - and his insurance cartel mandates won't be found even constitutional. Only half the Freedom Caucus needs to vote no to defeat Ryancare, and when other GOP Congressman realize it's going down, they are gonna start piling on with no votes to save their re-elections/primaries against new healthcare freedom candidates in 2018. -

    Exactly . . . Russian whoever Flynn was talking to was being wiretapped. According to Gowdy/Comey at yesterday's hearing, some authority would usually have to ask that the US citizen in those conversations be unmasked - the agency that actually did the wiretap would have to do the unmasking to get Flynn's name. Not usually the FBI if foreigner is outside US. The felony is that someone went to the media with that name then . . . I'll guess Loretta Lynch's department. Rand has also said over the weekend in Stephanapolous interview, that person(s) should go to jail.

    Ryan trying to patchwork his plan to get GOP support really showing it's weakness imo Republicans modify Obamacare repeal bill to win more GOP votes WASHINGTON — Republicans released a modified health care bill Monday in an attempt to shore up support among both conservatives and moderates for their legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act before the House votes Thursday — seven years to the day after President Obama signed the act. Despite the changes, it’s uncertain if the bill can garner enough Republican votes to pass the House. Democrats are united in their opposition to the bill. Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, one of the bill's staunchest critics, tweeted that the revised version won't garner enough support to pass.

    Here's a few minutes from youtube . . . And a more complete version of the exchange . . . interesting. Ya' gotta love that Loretta Lynch is on a suspect list /link for the investigation Comey can't confirm for unmasking (which gets defined) and dissemination . . . excuse me . . . "felonious" dissemination of unmasked identity - in this case Flynn - to the media. Gowdy states Comey has some 100 leads in the Obama administration . . . sounds like someone has to do 10 years in the joint eventually.

    “Are you still investigating the Clinton Foundation, Director Comey?” “I can’t say.” Comey got approval from the Justice Department and Trump to go ahead and announce there's an investigation into Russian stuff. But Clintons' still do not consent to revealing the full investigative reach into the 2016 campaigns.

    Obamacare-Lite Showdown: House Vote Scheduled for Thursday House Republicans plan to vote on the House floor on Speaker Ryan’s Obamacare-lite bill Thursday, amidst serious internal strife between Republican leadership and conservatives in the House and Senate. Speaker Ryan and Republican leadership will now rally support for the plan, amid strong opposition from the House Freedom Caucus. House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows referred to Speaker Ryan’s repeal bill as “Obamacare-lite” and criticized the bill for creating new entitlements through the bill’s tax credits to purchase health insurance. Republicans need 218 votes to pass legislation in the House. However, the House Freedom Caucus’ s 40-member coalition

    "Oh Shit" guy aided the Russians - Russians probably have US State Department documents that the US government archives doesn't even have now. Hillary certainly enabled the Russians by leaving the backdoor open going rogue at the State Department, so you'd have to bring both campaigns in to an election cybersecurity Special Prosecutor and investigation.
