The Republican health-care bill stood in a legislative Catch-22 late Wednesday, held hostage to demands that the White House and Republican leaders wish that they could grant but insist that they cannot.What is especially galling is that these Freedom Dimwits don't have a bill of their own to go up against the Ryan bill. They just scream from the cheap seats and mess up the Trump pro-growth agenda. You can pin that 1% downward move on Tuesday on these idiots. If the market drops again on Thursday you can blame them again. I hope they are all drummed out of the Congress in disgrace.
The captors in this instance are the members of the House Freedom Caucus, the group of roughly three dozen conservative hard-liners who have tried to bend the GOP bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act toward the right and have now coalesced around one major demand — that the American Health Care Act, as the GOP bill is titled, must repeal more of the ACA’s insurance mandates to truly lower premiums.

The So-Called #FreedomCretins AKA the #FreedomCaucus Hold Repeal and Replace Hostage
I have to say if the market goes down because this bill fails then everyone should hold these idiots accountable.
