House Speaker Paul Ryan promised a vote on Trumpcare today. He insisted on today because of the symbolic value of passing Obamacare repeal on the seventh anniversary of the law's signing. Apparently, even selling it on that point isn't enough to keep him from failing. Following the big meeting between popular vote loser Donald Trump and the maniacs in the Freedom Caucus, it looks like the vote won't happen today, although that's not yet confirmed.
That's because the maniacs are moving the goalposts, because they think it's going to work. They were presented with the "final offer" from Trump and Ryan—the one that would strip away all the stuff in health insurance that makes it actually insurance. But the maniacs clearly don't believe that this is a final offer.
Maniac Rep. Justin Amash (R-WI) adds that they weren’t offered anything new and it would be a mistake to vote tonight. This is the "regular order" and the "unity" that Paul Ryan has been promising for so long, I guess. It's enough to make you think he doesn't understand what those words mean.
Help the fight. The House is still potentially going to vote on this in the next few days. Even if you already called your member of Congress, do it again by calling the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Jam the phone lines, urge them to vote NO.
