President Trump has posted a tweet aimed at House Freedom Caucus Republicans who continue to take a “nay” stance on the pending healthcare legislation.
Trump reminded the “very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood” members of the Freedom Caucus that a “no” vote would allow Planned Parenthood funding to continue.
The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan!

Yesterday’s vote, scheduled to coincide with the 7th anniversary of the signing of Obama’s Affordable Care Act, was canceled when the Republicans realized they did not have enough votes to pass the bill.
Last night, Trump announced that negotiations were over and, if the bill does not pass, that Republicans will be left to deal with the consequences of Obamacare.
Trump claims that he will move forward if the bill is not passed, and it is being reported that he said he would be reluctant to work with those legislators who did not vote for the Republican’s healthcare bill.
