White House: Trump has done all he could to pass AHCA

In plain English, what the Press Secretary was saying is that Trump wants to take away health care from 24 million people and use the projected savings to help to pay for his tax cuts.

Responding to questions from reporters at his daily press briefing, Spicer called the American Health Care Act a "joint effort" between Congress and the President, and mentioned multiple times that Speaker Ryan was updating Trump at the White House. "And tomorrow we're proceeding".

"The president knew it was going to be tough from the get-go".

"So negative", Spicer reacted to one questioner "Why don't we continue with a very positive optimistic Friday?" The IRS, he pointed out, is already not enforcing rules requiring those who don't comply with the individual and employer mandates to pay a penalty.

It said it was aiming to block any content that attacked people based on their race, religion, sexual orientation or gender. As reported in Reuters , the giant internet company generated nearly $7.8 billion from advertising past year .

Asked if there was a political cost to a collapse of the health care bill, Spicer said that there would have been a cost to allowing the debate to carry on. Does this Bill make you think less of the president's negotiation skills?

Spicer was asked Trump regrets doing a health care bill first. Several Republicans, most notably those in the Freedom Caucus, did not support the legislation.

Spicer declined to say whether he thought the measure would garner the required 216 votes to pass the House, calling it a "balancing act" to get GOP members on board.

Yesterday, Spicer went just a little further, dismissing the former Trump campaign chairman as someone who was on the team "for five months". Obamacare, the message is still the same: it's a failing system, skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, and fewer choices.
