Donald Trump faced his first major legislative test yesterday, as the GOP health care bill neared its first vote in the House of representatives.
The legislation highlighted key differences between the Republican president and the most conservative members of congress. While Trump is viewed favorably among the far-right, his health care vision has generally been more liberal than that of the House Freedom Caucus — a group whose votes are virtually required for any GOP bill to succeed.
The first signs of fracture between conservative legislators and Trump became apparent during last year's presidential campaign. While House and Senate candidates were calling for a full repeal of Obamacare, Trump suggested that he was willing to keep some of the legislation's more popular elements.
The GOP's eventual bill seemed to favor Trump's light approach over the full dismantling many Republicans wanted — partially because Senate reconciliation rules made a full repeal impossible without 60 Democrat support.
Still, many hardline conservatives proved unwilling to back the bill, putting its success in doubt.

Too bad both parties don’t know how to play together. We are heading for a constitutional crisis. This is why the people voted for Trump. Drain the swamp .

RYAN made SURE it didn’t Pass! RYAN Is a SNAKE & a RINO!!!
Maybe give insurance back to free market and keep government out of the insurance business
Ryancare not Trumpcare
Ryan sabotaged the plan by including healthcare for illegal aliens. Why should American taxpayers pay for non Americans healthcare ? No, we’re not doing that anymore.
Ryan added gun control database edicts from physicians, hospitals, etc…. no, we’re not accepting that.
Ryan raised premiums on low income and Senior citizens to pay for younger peoples healthcare. No, we’re not doing that.
Ryan cut Medicare, no, we’re not accepting that.
It’s Obamacare reworded… no, we’re not doing that.
REMOVE AND REPLACE RYAN.
I like how so say he lost the vote! Well he actually did not! Obama Care is failing as we speak big time. And when it fails then that’s when Trump is going to act. This money from now until Obama care fails some will be contributed to Obama, witch is a lot of money. That’s what Congress and the media won’t tell you. Trump did the right thing by pulling out of this. So he is going to wait until it fails on it’s own. And I know for a fact that 90% of the American people do not want Obama Care.
