GOP donor sues party for fraud over Obamacare repeal

"You've got a false hoax story about this whole Russian Federation collusion stuff that he is fighting", former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski tells Fox News in an interview.

The Senate gaveled out shortly after noon Thursday and won't be back until September 5 - when, in addition to health care, they will face a defense budget, the debt ceiling and calls for tax reform.

But at the same time, the suit is a powerful symbol of the frustration, anger, and dissatisfaction of many Republicans with their party's failure to live up to their campaign pledge to repeal Obamacare.

"His agenda has been stalled".

House Republicans have launched a new website that slams the media for focusing on "chaos" instead of what they see as a productive first 200 days.

While saying he was open to a bipartisan plan for subsidies, McConnell also said on Saturday there was "still a chance" to address a repeal and replacement of Obamacare - but that it was quickly becoming unlikely, according to the AP.

Rep. Evan Jenkins, who switched from Democrat to Republican and won a U.S. House seat in 2014, said at a meet-and-greet in Huntington before the rally that "so many people in recent years have switched from Democrat to Republican, and if Jim Justice is making the switch, I welcome him to the Republican Party".

Republicans have bolted town to begin their late-summer recess, surely prepared to face headwinds and backlash at home about their decision to walk away from an Obamacare repeal-and-replace plan.

The retreat represents a "missed opportunity" for Republicans after seven months of controlling both chambers of Congress and the White House, said one analyst. Perry Bacon from 538 breaks down the uncertainty about Obamacare and the future of health care.

"We're eager to work with Gov. Justice to apply our team's conservative principles to the executive branch and make a clean break from the status quo that has dominated the previous two administrations", Senate President Mitch Carmichael said. Without healthy people in the risk pool, insurance companies would have to charge higher, often unaffordable, premiums to those with pre-existing conditions and older Americans. They not only pushed back immediately on the idea of ending the legislative filibuster, their leading health reform policy drafter rejected the implosion option outright. Sen.

A bill in the U.S. House of Representatives, H.R. 676, to establish a Medicare-for-all system is now co-sponsored by a majority of Democratic members of the House, and similar bills have been proposed in the Massachusetts Legislature.

"At some point we have to break the stalemate because obviously we're stuck, and I'm for us getting unstuck", Cornyn, a member of the Senate Finance Committee, which is charged with reauthorizing CHIP, said.

People don't want to look like they are criticising a president with whom they share a party affiliation and for whom they may have real affection. "Does that continue? Is it broader as they go home?" But it's a start, and we can hope.

In addition to the White House, the political network associated with the billionaire brothers Charles Koch and David Koch has is trying to prod the vulnerable Democrats to join the Republicans.

"We have a very, very large announcement", Trump said. President Obama had the Tea Party town halls in August. The Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina and a stock market crash, which generated a huge backlash against President George W. Bush and Republicans in 2008.

" And so, we don't know what's going to happen but the President might be good not to think he can relax the entire summer".
