House members, not Trump, need to prove commitment to the issue, said Cedar Rapids Republican Brett Mason, who wishes Blum would have backed the bill.

"We'll see", Spicer said, "but I think the idea that the president has put out there is that if people want to float ideas and suggestions on how we can grow this vote and get to a majority, he'll entertain them". "And that's not, that's hardly a conservative thing". But this political cavalry was noticeably absent during his first legislative agenda item, repealing and replacing the nation's health care law.

On Tuesday, Trump told senators attending a White House reception that he expected lawmakers to reach a deal "very quickly" on healthcare, but he did not offer specifics.

BENNETT: Congress is facing a more immediate and much more basic test of governance. He still supports President Donald Trump, but said his va.

The fallout from Friday's Republican health care bill collapse is still trying to be understood. "The Freedom Caucus didn't care".

"I think we are going to have some very good relationships - right, Chuck?" There is no discernible White House strategy for getting a bill through right now, and no evidence to suggest his team could shepherd it through. Freedom Caucus members made clear, by blocking ObamaCare repeal, they're not afraid of Trump.

"We have come a long way in our country when the speaker of one party urges a president NOT to work with the other party to solve a problem", Corker tweeted. SURVEILLANCE Two White House officials played a role in providing House of Representatives Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes with documents showing Trump and his associates were swept up in surveillance by US intelligence agencies, The New York Times reports.

With midterm elections coming next year, Wasson said he planned to vote again for his congressman, Rep. Rod Blum of Dubuque - a sentiment echoed by other voters whose representatives opposed the bill. It took President Obama more than a year to pass the Affordable Care Act, with more members of his own party in the Senate than Republicans have now. He never even tried to push for a full repeal; all he wanted was a "deal" he could take credit for. Jordan said Republicans need to figure out how to work together to confront looming battles including the federal budget, appropriations and raising the U.S. debt ceiling. Some 26 percent said House Democrats were most responsible and 23 percent blamed House Republicans.

Durbin said he believes the White House is "more receptive now" to bipartisan negotiations after last week's defeat in the House.

Beach said he hopes to deploy Trump backers into town halls during the upcoming congressional break and says the nonprofit and a companion political group has spent about $4 million since Trump's inauguration.

"I don't want that to happen", Ryan told the CBS program "This Morning" program, referring to Trump's offer to work with Democrats.

Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, chairman of the Freedom Caucus, generally kept a low profile Thursday, but he told the Washington Examiner's editorial board that Trump is "not being well-served" by some of his advisers.

President Trump and the Republican leadership scrambled to obtain the necessary votes needed in the House to pass the bill last week.

The panoply of outside groups competing for primacy is reminiscent of the sometimes problematic internal factions at the White House itself, though the groups' leaders say there's plenty of room for everyone.

"There's a real commitment among members he's been speaking with to not give up and move expeditiously toward a path forward", his spokeswoman, Alyssa Farah, said Wednesday. "I don't know what he is being advised". "But he doesn't want to constrain himself to artificial deadlines like 'before recess'".
