Nobody’s Happy

“Fixes” are coming to the American Health Care Act. Rejoice! “Fixes” would be useful, since all but a few dozen people in the world think it’s a bad bill. The problem is that each bloc of Republicans that thinks it’s a bad bill has dramatically different reasons for why. And there was no sign on Capitol Hill on Thursday that any neat “fixes” exist that can unite the conservative and moderate wings of the caucus. If this bill is to pass, one side will have to break and accede to “fixes” that move the bill in the other’s direction. If it doesn’t pass, each faction will be responsible for making the governing party a governing joke.
