This Could Happen Fast


Here’s where we are. After weeks of false assurances, puffery, and salesmanship intended to give Obamacare repeal some legislative momentum when in fact there was none, the White House appears closer to securing the necessary votes than it has at any point since the bill was yanked in March. It’s not a done deal yet, and in truth, it’s difficult to trust any of the pronouncements by the interested parties after all the nonsense talk of the last few weeks. As of now, no vote has been scheduled, and the window for getting the vote done is narrow. The House is gone on recess from Friday through next week. A vote would have to be Thursday. That’s looking more likely than it has in weeks. Stay tuned.
