Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has expressed concern that the replacement for Obamacare, American Health Care Act (AHCA), would be a betrayal to the very people who voted Trump in to the White House.
The failure to repeal and replace Obamacare would be a stinging defeat for Trump. But it would be an even bigger defeat for Paul Ryan, who has all but staked his Speakership on passing this bill. And in the hall of mirrors that is Washington, the big winner to emerge out of the health-care debacle could be Steve Bannon.
… A failed bill would be Bannon’s best chance yet to topple Ryan and advance his nationalist-populist economic agenda.
Bannon has publicly supported the AHCA, however privately he’s stated that Paul Ryan’s bill “doesn’t drive down costs” and was “written by the insurance industry.” Steve is now distancing himself from the bill as he is foreseeing political fall out for it.
If Trump passes the AHCA, would you be disappointed?
