No Sympathy

Views

Tierney Sneed and Alice Ollstein have been talking to members all morning, and the members have no idea if the votes are there, which usually means they aren’t. Things are also getting testy:

Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY), a key Trump ally in Congress, said part of the problem predicting Friday’s vote result is that communications have broken down among House Republicans. “I’ve never seen this. People are refusing to talk to each other. They’re storming past each other. This is not good,” he told reporters. “There is bitterness within our conference that’s going to take time to heal.”

Cry me a river.
