With the likely failure of RyanCare on the horizon, the landscape of the Republican party may drastically restructure itself.
Ryans heathcare bill was supposed to be a full repeal and replacement of ObamaCare, but many conservatives have abandoned Ryans bill, citing it keeps many of President Obamas policies intact.
As a result, President Trump modestly went to Capitol Hill and urged congress and threatened their chances of reelection if they fail to launch.
Paul Ryan barely received an endorsement from Donald Trump given Ryans stigma of being a Republican In Name Only.
Enter Trey Gowdy, the man who publicly lambasted Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and James Comey.

I believe this, too. We already know that our House and Senate leadership has no qualms about lying in order to get votes for a bill.
We cash hit the FOPe back low & hard......no money contributed to the GOP until Ryan is replaced, Comey is indicted, a federal grand jury is empaneled to investigate Obama ‘wiretapping’ ......
Ryan looks a lot like Anthony Weiner in that workout pic...lol
“Jared and Ivanka will gain even more influence....”
How do you know who he’s listening to?
It could be Pence/Preibus(rino central) pushing Trump to trust and do business with Ryan.
Ryan is a horrible leader, but Ive heard all this before. He was supposed to be voted out once Trump won the presidency too. We saw how that turned out.
Fiesta would be an upgrade though he’s lost some of his fire along the way. Just about anyone is better than Ryan.
The Patient CARE repeal and replacement act of 2015 was a better plan than the Ryancare now proposed.
Elmer Gantry Gowdy is one of the biggest frauds in D.C. All bark, no bite.
The hat don’t bother, but him posing like some Hollywood model is a bit odd. I mean, even the seamless backdrop is staged. A photo op, just like play actors always participate in.
Seems you and the democrats are happy tonight.
Time for Newt!
Have to agree. She was just getting her footing.
I don’t think it can be completely repealed and replaced until 2018.
The Freedom Caucus saved us from the tyranny of Paul RINOs RINOcare repair Bill! If RINO had have really wanted repeal, he would have gotten it done. He didn’t. He wanted ALL of the tentacles of 0bamacare to remain. He lied to EVERYONE about “this is the only way” and “Phase two” and “Phase three” that was never going to happen! Paul RINO is the failure here. But yes .. Trump was a fool to follow a guy whose wife is a Progressive DimocRAT D.C. lobbyist. Hopefully, he’s learned his lesson. And I don’t really fault Trump at this point; he’s not an ideologue nor a politician. He just wanted to get it done. But hopefully now, he’s learned his lesson and he’ll never trust Paul RINO and his merry band of DimocRATS (McCarthy, et al) in RINO clothing again.
“Im undecided if that pic is gay or just a raging douchebag trying too hard to be cool.”
Why couldn’t it be both?
I second Jim Jordan!
I agree. Parts 2 and 3 would be scattered to the winds. Whatever bill Republicans put forward, they have to know that an individual mandate is not an option to the majority of Republican voters.
The passage of ObamaCare was a horrible experience for the Republican base and to anyone who believes in the liberty the Constitution provides. The Constitution is not some sort of abstract construct to many of us.
I don’t care what kind of Republican votes on the future of healthcare. They need to know this that if they try to stick any variation ObamaCare down our throats they will pay a dear political price.
Ryan has proven that he belongs on the short bus.
Ryan didn’t want the job.
If you want him out, ask for a vote of him vs any wacko you want to pick. No one but him could get a majority 18 months ago and hard to see how that’s changed.
You might want to go here http://www.270towin.com/2016-house-election/ and click the box that says highly competitive districts. Gotta squint but I count 33. Those aren’t going to be hard core conservatives.
So you’re behind 33-26 when you start.
Then you might want to go look at all who won their seat last year by less than 53%. They ain’t gonna be taking extreme positions either.
Ryan looks pretty young to resign. Don’t see it happening.
I thought that went very very badly. Don’t take the king if you don’t have somebody ready to step in and take over.
