All that hard work wooing “moderate Republicans” went swimmingly:
Some members of the Tuesday Group of House Republican moderates are plotting to oust Co-Chairman Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.) from his post amid frustration that he negotiated a deal on the ObamaCare replacement bill with the conservative Freedom Caucus, two Tuesday Group members told The Hill on Wednesday.
The matter could come up at a Tuesday Group meeting Wednesday afternoon, sources said.
“There is dissension in the ranks,” said one Tuesday Group member who backs MacArthur’s ouster. “The Tuesday Group, to me, is a group of concerned, like-minded representatives who discuss issues, not negotiate positions on behalf of the group, but have meetings on Tuesday and have lunch and discuss the pending issues of the day.”
I’m still hoping they have a vote tomorrow, that lots of Republicans from swing districts walk the plan and vote for the piece of shit, and then the smarter ones come in a neas and defeat it.
