The amendment would establish a reserve fund of at least $75 billion for tax credits to help the core constituency that propelled Trump to the White House: Americans between 50 and 64, who would see their premiums skyrocket under the current repeal plan. But the amendment would not set up the tax credits – it would instruct the Senate to do so, forcing House Republicans to take a vote on something the upper chamber would do later.

Paul Ryan screwing Senate Republicans to somewhat cover his own ass, masterful.

I'll laugh about how stupid this is once it fails to pass in the senate and not a moment before.

Senate to pass a resolution saying 'nuh-uh, you blink first'

Recursive legislation, congress headed towards an old fashioned software deadlock.

yeah Ryan, i am sure that will go over well with party unity and getting them onboard with your, bill.

Sending your dirty unfinished work to the upper house of Congress is sure to be a winner.

McConnell, unlike Ryan, is actually good at being a leader so he's just going to look at this and laugh.

Congress is so freaking worthless.

Senate won't do anything either.

Basiclly trying to leave the option of throwing McConnel under the bus if the bill goes south.

Does Ryan even care what people think about him anymore?

You would think he'd be smart enough to project how all this looks come midterms.

But nope.

Getting the bill through the House has pretty much been his entire strategy all along. If the AHCA collapses in the Senate it's McConnell's fault.

They are all in deflecting mode because they all know this entire healthcare bill can destroy them later, and they want any plausible deniability of actually being for it.

But they also know they wont get another chance to do this without Reconciliation and not early in the Presidency.

Ryan making it obvious he just wants to dump this turd in McConnel's lap so he can say he did his part, it's the Senate's fault it failed.

This is so pathetic. No one wants to come out and admit there is no right-wing alternative to Obamacare because it is the right-wing alternative. Instead they will just push this shit around hoping someone else will take the bullet and kill this bill so they don't have to admit that they are liars.
