House conservatives (click here) say they have the votes to bring down a Republican plan to replace Obamacare, threatening a core piece of President Donald Trump's agenda and sparking a frantic, 11th-hour pressure campaign by the president and House GOP leaders.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the arch-conservative House Freedom Caucus, claimed Wednesday that 25 of his colleagues would reject the House's health care plan, exceeding the 22 Republican "no" votes necessary to block the legislation. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has scheduled a Thursday vote on the bill, but several Freedom Caucus members and their Senate allies urged him to postpone the vote and go back to the negotiating table....

Thank you. The country thanks you. The best person to speak to ANY weakness in the ACA is President Obama. Ask him.

No one said the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was perfect. No one claimed that. However, IT WAS NECESSARY.

Hold a closed session and allow President Obama speak to his observations and frustrations with the ACA. He was challenged by some of the provisions. I am confident he has a critique no one expects. Minority Leader Pelosi should set up a closed session of the US House to invite President Obama to speak regarding the ACA. I am confident he holds no malice to any member of Congress and would be willing to do such a presentation.
