Ohio Gov. John Kasich wants Congress to “fix” Obamacare’s insurance exchanges with more federal spending
Never an attractive option
“I did not come to Washington to hurt people.”
It’s not a slippery slope. It’s a freaking avalanche.
This was all over before it began
“the Senate bill would go farther than the House version in its approach to cutting Medicaid spending.”
“Your Senator can slow the Senate down to a crawl…”
“One down, 216 to go”
“Inching” being the operative word.
Too early to tell.
Good news/bad news.
Plus: No do-over needed on AHCA.
Wrench in the works?
“courage means not simply doing what is simply politically expedient…”
Hurry up and wait.
“I feel great about the count.”
No vote this week?
“Did I ever say we were going to vote on health care?”
Don’t bet on it.
Add “a few pretty significant amendments” to it, and …
“All options are on the table.”
“When we read about a piece of legislation in your publication for the first time, it’s a problem.”
“White House is taking the lead this time”?
Hole in one?
Rule of law and whim.
“I don’t take it as a threat.”
“A very painful growing pain.”
“set the Middle East ablaze.”
“There’s a gift shop that sells standard museum trinkets…”
