President Donald trump sued the Republicans an ultimatum. He proposed to vote for his health care reform or to stay with the program Obama.
If the ultimatum trump succeeds, it will set its power on Capitol hill and will provide much-needed victory for the beleaguered White house. But if his play fails, he will suffer a humiliating defeat. The result is an uncertain vote on Friday there were indications that the White house is preparing to lay the blame on the speaker of the house of representatives, Paul Ryan, if the bill failed.
Bet trump is a serious risk, but in the presidency, based on his own conviction that his superior negotiating skills can open up an era of inertia of the Congress and to make laws that will change the country. Because his supporters still do not have the votes for the bill, he also made the first and perhaps most important test of the idea that his business approach "the art of the deal" can translate into policy.
Trump has repeatedly boasted that it makes "great deals" and criticized the negotiating skills of his predecessor, President Barack Obama, for example, on the nuclear deal in Iran because, in his opinion, it could make much more a tough deal.
In the end, the Republican party has voted many times to repeal the Obama program, or part of it - although I always knew that in the end the vote would be thwarted by the Senate.
