How ‘Trumpcare’ Went up in Flames – and Why it Should Worry the GOP about the Future

Just 64 days into his presidency, the first major legislative item on the Republican agenda was dead.

.

Ryan called Trump around 3 p.m. Friday to say what Republican leaders knew all week  they didn’t have the votes to pass the American Health Care Act. Trump told him to pull the bill.

.

The collapse of the AHCA, which became colloquially known as “Trumpcare” and “Ryancare” through the process, capped off a wild 18 days in which the bill was introduced, went through four committees, was amended multiple times, and ultimately failed to garner enough support from House Republicans.

.

The defeat of the legislation represents not only a short-term failure for one of the biggest parts of Trump’s legislative agenda, but also an ominous sign for Republican efforts going forward.

.

‘We came up short’

.

Ultimately, the AHCA fell flat because Republicans were not able to unite the two disparate wings of the party.

.

On the one hand, the conservative wing  primarily the House Freedom Caucus a 35-member, more conservative-leaning group  felt the AHCA did not go far enough in its repeal of Obamacare.

.

The Freedom Caucus had enough ammunition to hold out for a variety of reasons. The caucus was just big enough to block the GOP from obtaining a majority to pass the legislation. They are mostly safe in their districts. And conservative action groups like Heritage Action and Club for Growth were on their side.

.

Part of the problem came from the GOP leadership, which gave the caucus the ammunition to hold out nearly two years ago.

.

Then, Republicans passed a “clean” Obamacare repeal bill in 2015, through both the House and Senate. The bill stripped all of Obamacare’ taxes, like the AHCA, but also its protections for patients and popular regulations like the ability for a child to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26.

.

Freedom Caucus members who turned against the AHCA repeatedly brought up the 2015 bill as an example of what repeal could look like. And since every member voted to pass that bill, for the Freedom Caucus, it became a question of why they would not simply do that again.

.

“There’s one thing that has united Republicans in when we won the House, in 2014 when we won the Senate, and in 2016 when we won the White House. This doesn’t divide Republicans, this brings us together, and that is complete repeal, clean repeal,” Sen. Rand Paul said on March 7.

.

On the other end, moderate Republicans like the so-called Tuesday Group thought the bill went too far in its changes to the healthcare system.

.

Facing the prospect of thousands of voters in their district losing their healthcare and seeing backlash from constituents at a variety of town-hall meetings, the AHCA was not palatable to this group.

.

The issue was exacerbated as the White House and GOP leaders gave concessions to the conservative wing of the party in the final days. Tweaks like the repeal of the ACA’s essential health benefits  which compel insurers to provide basic coverage for things like prenatal care and preventive screenings  made moderate Republicans reject the bill.

.

Additionally, the changes to Medicaid funding in the AHCA  including ending the Medicaid expansion that allowed 11 million Americans to get coverage since the ACA  made moderates move off of the plan.

.

Republican Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, chair of the House Appropriations Committee, cited those tweaks when he made a stunning decision to oppose the bill Friday.
