Punkass Ryan downplays conservative backlash against healthcare plan...

The debate over repealing and replacing ObamaCare is dejavu all over again, from the GOP side. 
There's going to be a lot of twist and turns on this.  Sausage making, which is what the legislative process is, is not pretty.  As far as Ryan being a Punkass?  That's what he is because when it get hot, he goes PC and will sell you out in a second. 

Washington Post reports major associations representing physicians, hospitals, insurers and seniors all leveled sharp attacks against the House GOP’s plan to rewrite the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday, as some Republicans publicly questioned whether the measure can clear the House of Representatives.

While industry groups warned that the proposal could leave vulnerable Americans with fewer protections than they now have, GOP leaders pressed ahead, bringing legislation before two key committees that are expected to approve the bills by week’s end. They were also working in concert with the White House to win over conservatives, who have complained that the proposal preserves too much of the current law. 

The flurry of activity — including an evening meeting between President Trump and leaders from five skeptical conservative groups — created new uncertainty about the viability of Republicans’ signature promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The day’s events also showed the uneasy predicament facing House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), the proposal’s chief booster, who described the plan Wednesday as a “conservative wish list” that would deliver on years of GOP campaign promises to change the nation’s health-care system.
