“According to CNN’s ongoing whip count, 12 House Republicans have flat-out said they will vote against the current version of the bill, while 11 more have indicated they are likely to oppose it. That’s 23 lawmakers opposed to or leaning against the bill.”
See Which Republicans are opposing the Obamacare repeal bill?
While Trump repeats endlessly that he will come through on his promises of wonderful healthcare in USA, and coos that his healthcare bill will pass Congress, yesterday, CNN reported 23 representatives were voting “NO!” or leaning that way. Today they report the number is 25…

    Amazing how the USA can’t seem to get a universal payer healthcare scheme together.
    Plenty of money for senseless wars, but no money to take care of their own population.

    CNN occasionally gets it wrong but at least they don’t have a pattern of lying.

    You are delusional.

    Anyone can see that CNN is highly biased. It’s yellow journalism. They lie by omission. They lie by cherry picking what is and isn’t news. They love to bring on a panel to debate the latest attack on Trump. By default Trump is on the defensive when they have to bring a panel of “experts” to debate things that would never be debated in the first place if it was against Hillary or Obama.

    The media spent 20 TIMES more time covering the Billy Bush / Trump tapes versus the Hillary WikiLeaks stuff. Again the media is clearly biased against Trump.

    Do you remember the CNN anchor telling people it is illegal for them to look at Wikileaks but ok for CNN? Please!

    Watch FOX news, or listen to talk radio and you’ll hear a completely different perspective.

    If CNN finds two sources that support a story they will go with it. That’s a lot more reliable than Trump’s gut. It is possible that CNN occasionally gets it wrong but at least they don’t have a pattern of lying.

    It’s not Trumps plan, it’s Paul Ryans.


    Lots of people just want to trash Obamacare and start fresh, RyanCare is Obamacare lite. Single payer will eventually pass, once they try everything else. It is a math problem, plain and simple. If healthcare in America is costing us 18% of our GDP, and it cost every other country in the range of 8-10% with single payer, those savings are how you pay for it. The extra 8-10% we pay is for lining the pockets of insurance companies and myriad of health care affiliated creatures with very little in the way of cost control. Bitch all you want, but that’s the way it is.

    You do realize that CNN is “fake” news do you not? For example: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/mar/17/juan-williams-shoots-down-cnns-sensationalized-gun/ Both persons involved have stated that CNN’s story is bullshit.
