Nervous GOP senators rooting for Ryan to fail
A growing number of GOP senators are hoping the House fails to pass its bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare so they won’t be blamed for killing it in the upper chamber.
Support for the House legislation has “disintegrated” in the Senate, according one Republican senator who requested anonymity to discuss internal conference politics.
It will require substantial revisions to win the support of moderate Republicans in the upper chamber — something that will likely make it unacceptable to conservatives.
Given what looks like an unbridgeable divide in the Senate GOP conference, some are saying that it would be better if the bill dies in the House.
