Not Dead Yet

Why is Obamacare still alive?
Party members emerged from a closed-door retreat in Philadelphia last week frustrated at the lack of progress in uniting around a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Numerous health-care alternatives have been offered by Republicans, but none have won consensus in the party. GOP leaders and committee chairmen have yet to get behind a legislative alternative, although House Speaker Paul Ryan has put forward a series of broad ideas in a blueprint released last year, including refundable tax credits and high-risk pools.

Even so, Representative Raul Labrador of Idaho offered a terse response when asked Monday whether any progress had been made in the health-care meeting at the retreat.

"No," he said.

"There are a lot of good ideas," he continued. "We just need to get the committees to do their work."
Good ideas maybe, but not good politicians...
