Conservative backlash threatens to sink new GOP health bill

This was always going to be cheaper (for the government) and not as good. If anything ever passes, it will look different then this, Right now this hurts the oldest the most, you know the Republican base.

A threat to close schools, a search for $1.6 billion in funding, and a host of other issues await lawmakers as they return to Topeka

I think at some point Brownback and the Republicans are going to find out if the Court is bluffing on closing the schools. Curious about that myself.
