Healthcare, check. Now on to next things

Now Republicans must move on Trump’s ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ agenda  "OK: Republicans now stand exposed as badly divided on how to replace ObamaCare. So it’s time to move on with the “jobs, jobs, jobs” core of the Trump agenda.
"The bill Speaker Paul Ryan pulled from the floor Friday wasn’t good enough for most of the Freedom Caucus, but pleasing them would’ve lost other Republicans. 
"Every GOP member of Congress has been damning ObamaCare for eight years — without working out with each other what they’re actually for. So it’s back to the drawing board (or the conference room).
"The regular Republicans couldn’t get it together to make good on one of their promises; now they have a duty to work with the president to make good on his.
"It’ll be easier to replace ObamaCare when millions more Americans have good jobs." . . .
Discussion About GOP Replacement to Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House Intensifies in White House, Congress  "Republican officials in Congress and the White House are now openly discussing finding a GOP replacement to Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House, after Ryan failed to pass the American Health Care Act out of the House and misled the public and President Donald Trump when he promised repeatedly the bill would pass.

"Ryan was caught on an audio file from October—obtained by Breitbart News and published a couple weeks ago—saying he is “not going to defend Donald Trump—not now, not in the future.” While the audio file does not make the comments clear, Ryan’s staff later claimed that it was specifically about the Access Hollywood tape scandal from the election. The audio tape of Ryan, recorded from a House GOP members’ conference call, does not make that context clear." . . .
White House sources tell Breitbart News that the president is very frustrated with Ryan and feels that he has saved him multiple times already. After the election in November, it was widely reported that there were enough Republican votes to remove Ryan as Speaker—and the only reason conservatives kept him is that Trump won the election and embraced Ryan. But now Trump may perceive Ryan as a burden rather than someone who can help enact his agenda.
