CBO releases analysis of AHCA, predicting increasing premiums over the next few years, before a decrease (mostly for the young and rich. Costs likely go up for old and poor), and large expected loss of insured over the next decade. Trump does not accept numbers, but tries to lower people's expectations of premium drops. Conservatives still split on support.

Senate looking to increase coverage for poor under AHCA, which is likely to further anger conservatives, and cause split in Senate GOP

Meanwhile, the AHCA has 24% approval, compared to 49% for the ACA.

Please don't fall for the lies.

Increasing those covered without allocating more money means Medicaid amounts run out faster. This just means that the even poorer poor get fucked harder, and the slightly less poor poor get slightly less fucked.

So, Anti-Islamic protestors and Muslim counter-protesters are both attacked by radical Communists and unite against common enemies.

That... isn't quite what happened.

Anti-Islamic protestors showed up outside a mosque. Members of the mosque counter protested. Then a bunch of Anti-fa showed up, and insulted the Anti-Islamic protestors, not the muslims. The Muslims said "Hey, the fascists have a right to free speech, cool it." The Anti-fa continued to protest the fascists, and the original two groups said to each other "You wanna get lunch?"

The AHCA vote has been 'postponed' again, and is basically defunct at this point. Ordinarily, I'd say that would be the end of Ryan's Speakership, but does anyone else even want the job now?

I've seen commentary that this failure of leadership may fatally wound Tangerine Mussolini's entire agenda. I'm not sure it needed the help, but grumpycat.jpg anyway.

I mean, it's not good for Trump and co. but I kind of assumed they'll just keep at it until they are able to pass their punitive health care bill of some sort. There's billions and trillions in tax-breaks to be had for the top percentile, and that must happen or they will have failed as a party. Plus that whole "Repeal and Replace" mantra they've been chanting since 2011.

Ryan originally didn't want it for this reason, either.
