LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:

The report by Cannon has many on social media retorting that the new GOP is politics as usual, and that K-12 student councils are more equipped for dealing with important matters, than the House leadership.
Same old tactics that got us Trump.

The Cato health policy wonk, has said that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would “raise premiums 20%, and and leave more people uninsured than fully repealing.” Cannon is also on the front lines of the movement repeal Obamacare regulations through the act of reconciliation in the Senate, and idea which was talked about on Thursday, during a Capitol Hill briefing.
While time will tell what is to come of the House GOP leadership’s AHCA bill, the only thing that appears certain at this time is a sentiment tweeted by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) earlier in the day. (Massie is also a critic of the American Health Care Act).
Looks like the House has returned to "regular disorder"
