    I think this tweet may be a typo on the timing unless the vote got moved up two hours.

      First year Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL) is an Afghanistan war vet and a double amputee due to war injuries. He addressed Republican House members last night in an emotional way. This young man has more guts and courage than the Freedom Caucus combined. Maybe his words kept them up last night but even if not, Brian Mast plans to be the first vote cast today. He’s the kind of patriot that runs to the sound of battle, not from it.

      “I’ve just never been in a battle that we only had to fire one shot. I’ve never been in a battle with a perfect plan. And even being able to say that–we won every single one of them…” Congressman Brian Mast

      • They also either support their President and the people who voted for him or they don’t.
        I’d like to see sundance post a list of who voted how.
        I will be early in line to support any challenger to my representative, Leonard Lance, in 2018, if he votes against what POTUS wants.

          And…Tom is ‘THE MAN’…!

          Rep. Tom McClintock: Yes

          McClintock of Elk Grove was once a member of the House Freedom Caucus, a group
          of far-right Republicans who largely oppose the bill. He was initially leery of
          the bill, especially when the Congressional Budget Office’s report showed it
          would have a substantial negative effect on older, low-income workers.

          But he announced Tuesday that he would vote for the bill, saying changes to the bill had satisfied him.

          “I wish it did everything necessary to restore an optimal health insurance
          market,” McClintock said on the House floor Tuesday. “But it moves us toward
          that goal, and even as a stand-alone measure, I am confident it will ultimately
          create a market in most states that will produce better services, greater
          choices and lower costs for the vast majority of Americans.”

          His move won him praise from Trump during Republicans’ closed-door meeting
          Tuesday morning, according to a person in the room.

            Tom McClintock is an intelligent, principled, brave politician ( I know that seems like an impossible combination) and a great American. He is one of the reasons I changed my party affiliation.

              I believe you’re right about that!
              I’m getting emails from Senate Conservatives signed by Ken Cuccinelli II, whom as I remember from the July convention was practically joined at the hip with Mike Lee in his efforts to throw the convention into chaos because of his never-Trump posture and his intense campaigning for Cruz.

              Also Freedom Works which — for as long as I have been following them (2009) — have moved within the open borders paradigm despite its otherwise “conservative” public stances. I commented on this at the time over at VFR.

              And Heritage — the Heritage which also, in my opinion, has its two legs over the stream, one on land which adopts elements of conservatism and the other on land which virtually ignores the costs of unbridled legal and illegal immigration into our country.

              There is much about government involvement in healthcare which is a magnet for those who are *unwilling* to curb the welfare state because to do so would necessarily also curb untrammeled immigration: in short, the crony capitalist (Koch brothers comes to mind) wing of the GOP. Said immigrants presence here require that you and I and all taxpayers pick up the tab for their healthcare. Welfare is basic economics: supply creates its own demand.

              Enough for now.

                I agree, harrietht3!! I have often said of the so-called “Freedom Caucus”, that if conservatism is what they say it is, then I am not a conservative! I am truly at a loss for a political identity at this point, but I am truly happy to be an American and supporting our president! So, I guess it doesn’t matter what political persuasion I am! 🙂 I only want what is right for the country and I believe our new president does as well.

      Actually, I’m not going to ding him for what he wrote. I think he is right, the initial phase “appears” that it does nothing immediately to the giant burden on the working middle-class who are bearing the burden of delivering government sponsored health care to everyone at the cost of losing and restricting their own care and caring of the entire damn industry.

      He is also right about the arrogant way it was done by Ryan, who we distrust and despise.

      That said, the only reason why I support passing the bill is because of Sundance’s input and my trust in President Trump to do the right thing. So while I agree with the no argument, I’ve turned to accepting that we should pass this – simply because the process is the problem, and we have to go in the backdoor all the way.

        Ya know, everybody refers to this as Health CARE. O’Care has nothing to with health CARE. It’s an attempt to overtake the medical insurance companies, who were fools to get in bed with the devil and support that thing.

        It’s about Health Insurance. Health insurance is a product I purchase to help me pay my medical bills, or it used to be.

          All I know is that my Part D doubled in costs, my deductible has gone up with Medicare and Part D, and my prescription are either not approved or cost more. I just went on Medicare in June and it wasn’t by choice.

          BTW, I am surprised when I speak with young people about Medicare and tell them they won’t have a choice. It’s like a train just went by and they forgot to brake the car? They usually say, “are you serious, you don’t have a choice.” That’s when I smile and tell them they are correct, “we don’t have a choice!” Our country is a Republic alright, a Banana Republic and the government knows best.

          I recommend that the movie, “Dr. Zhivago” be shown over and over again on TV. When I read the book at 14, it was my first introduction to communism.

      All well and good to “send the order” … but now the President also needs to ensure the embassy heads of the visa-approval process are staffed with Trump patriots and not these guys:

      Obama Admin Loyalists, Government Insiders Sabotage Trump White House

      “In one instance, Trump administration officials found evidence that the administration’s executive order banning travel from certain Muslim-majority nations had been selectively altered to bring it more in line with Obama-era talking points.

      “Several hours before the orders were set to be signed by Trump, officials noticed that language concerning “radical Islamic terrorism” had been stripped from the order and replaced with Obama-era language about countering violent extremism.

      “West Wing staffers quickly scrambled to rewrite the order to bring it back in line with Trump’s rhetoric, sources told the Free Beacon. The alteration of these directives is said to have spooked some senior officials working on the issue.”

      The new “order” is the plan … now we also need the execution. And it needs to be executed with an iron fist such that any saboteurs say goodbye to their cushy government job..

    A key point here. Democrats own this, too. They loved how they passed this legislation the last time, and are fully accountable for the death spiral it is now in. Take the costs out of their states’ allocations of federal funds. In the meantime, for those who vote for this legislation, let’s make sure their infrastructure projects sail on smoothly through first.

    Great job once again, Press Secretary Spicer. I tune in to cheer you on, and there are more of me out here. No one should have to fight those dragons all by themselves.

    Trump wins either way!

    Trump can say he did all he could to pass the bill, and this the list of Republicans that voted against the bill, that stated when they were campaigning they will repeal and replace.

    Let the voters decide who they want to elect to take their place next election.

    Trump wins.

    And if these clowns vote against the bill, I’m sure Trump will remember if these clowns ask for a favor over the next 8 years, Trump will sit back and tell them to get on their knees and bark like a dog.

    Trump wins.

    And to rub it in, when Trump gives a rally, he can read the list of Republicans that voted against the bill. I’m sure that will have an effect on these guys.

        I might agree with your logical opinion, WTP, if it were anyone but President Trump. He never gives up, ever.

        His apparent failures in his businesses morphed into spectacular successes once he saw them through to the end. To him, the stakes now are much higher than when he was earning his billions. We, the American people, are his heart and soul, and he will fight until US healthcare is the best it can possibly be. This is not blind faith to me personally; it is an inescapable conclusion drawn from this man’s open and extensive history. This will be fascinating, whether it’s resolved relatively quickly or requires more lead time than any of us prefer. Our response when all is said and done will be “ohhhh…”

    IMO, the quickest way to get the D-Rats working to get rid of O-Care would be to pass a new law,.the Rs have the numbers to do this by themselves, that takes away the House, Senate, their friends and families exemptions; in other words, make them have to comply with O-Care like the rest of the people. If O-Care was enforced on them, they’d likely be more agreeable to get rid of it.
