Speaker Paul “Marathon” Ryan (R-WI): 2-step Plan for AHCA Revival in the House

Think it will pass a second time, Mr. Speaker???

Our New Plan
(Only 2 steps – Eazy Peazy)

My personal preference is Step #2
(Refer to the chart above)

WASHINGTON (from the Las Vegas SUN) — Under extreme pressure from conservative activists, House Republican leaders and the White House have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obama-care - for what the 60th something time)? 

But efforts to revive the legislation in the House could take weeks, lawmakers conceded, as Congress moves forward with a full plate of other time-consuming issues. The renewed push did not meet with much enthusiasm from Senate Republicans, who said they had other priorities at the moment.

Nonetheless, House Speaker Paul Ryan vowed to renew efforts to repeal the law, despite last week’s crushing setback when House Republicans tossed aside a repeal bill because they lacked the votes to pass it.

Just days after President Donald Trump said he was moving on to other issues, senior administration officials said they still hoped to score the kind of big legislative victory that has so far eluded the White House. VP Mike Pence was dispatched to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for lunchtime talks.

“We’re not going to retrench into our corners or put up dividing lines,” Ryan said after a meeting of House Republicans was dominated by talk of how to restart health negotiate

My view: Ryan as “Leader” of the all GOP-run House is either between a rock and a hard place, or in a real shït sandwich. Hard to tell which sometimes isn't it? 
Stay tuned.
