The move was a high-risk gamble for the president and the speaker, who have invested significant political capital in passing legislation that would replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act. For Trump, who campaigned as a skilled negotiator capable of forging a good deal on behalf of Americans, it could either vindicate or undercut one of his signature claims.
Now if the Post had any intellectual honesty (they don’t) they would notice the contradictions in headline and the body of the article. This is speaker Ryan’s deal. He has had close to 8 years to have a health care package ready to replace the universally reviled Obamacare.
He and his cronies do not. Simply put they never thought Trump would win, and the never intended to replace the AHCA if he did. Trump is letting this blow up in Ryan’s face.
