After seven long, hard, grueling years, this was supposed to be a moment of victory for the GOP. This was supposed to be the beginning of the end of Obamacare.
Many viewed the legislation under consideration as far from ideal. But the circumstances are far from ideal. Repealing a major entitlement, and reforming an issue as complex as health care, is never going to be an easy process.

Will Obamacare Survive?
Today marks the seventh anniversary of Obamacare. After voters gave Republicans control of the House, the Senate and the White House on November 8th, many hoped that a vote today in the House of Representatives might mark the beginning of the end of Obamacare.
President Trump made another attempt today to persuade conservative holdouts in the House Freedom Caucus to support the leadership's repeal bill. But they emerged from the White House without a deal.

Terror In London
The heart of London was the scene of a terrorist attack today. According to initial reports, three people, including a police officer, were killed and as many as 20 were wounded, some with "catastrophic injuries."
The attack mirrors tactics Palestinian terrorists have repeatedly used in Israel. It began when a car started mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. The jihadist crashed his car, jumped out and attacked a policeman with a large knife. He was shot on the grounds of Parliament and later died.

President Trump is all in when it comes to passing the legislation that begins the process of repealing Obamacare. The president went to Capitol Hill this morning to speak directly with House Republicans in advance of Thursday's vote. The bill, which continues to undergo last-minute changes, still faces resistance from members of the House Freedom Caucus.
Following the meeting, Speaker Paul Ryan said the president "knocked it out of the park," and made it clear that after years of promising action on Obamacare, this is the time to deliver.

Where's The News?
To say there is a lot going on in Washington this week would be a "YUGE" understatement. Major issues on the president's agenda (healthcare vote) and issues impacting his legacy (Gorsuch hearing) are coming to a head this week.
But what is likely to dominate tonight's evening news broadcasts and the headlines in tomorrow's papers is the testimony this morning by FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Admiral Michael Rogers before the House Intelligence Committee.

A left-wing federal judge has once again blocked an executive order meant to safeguard our homeland security. Obama-appointed Judge Derrick Watson sided with arguments by the state of Hawaii, which said it was worried about losing Muslim tourists. This morning, a federal judge in Maryland also ruled against the president's order.

Here's some "breaking news" thanks to crack investigative reporting by MSNBC: Donald Trump is a rich man who paid a lot of money in taxes.
Last night, Rachel Maddow informed America that Trump reported $150 million in income and paid $38 million in taxes twelve years ago. We know this because someone leaked two pages of Trump's 2005 tax return to David Cay Johnston, a reporter who writes about economics and tax issues.

The intolerance of the left was on full display this weekend. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was accosted when he attempted to go shopping at an Apple store. It was another disturbing incident involving the public shaming of Trump officials by left-wing fanatics.

Fighting For Your Values
I had a great meeting yesterday at the White House with other pro-life leaders and Vice President Mike Pence. I know you don't need reminding, but some politicians have mixed records on the sanctity of life. Not so with Vice President Pence.
