House Speaker Paul Ryan’s healthcare plan is under fire.
Thursday, establishment Republicans scored an early triumph as a second key House panel approved a bill to end Obamacare and fundamentally restructure Medicaid for low-income people.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee cleared the GOP bill on a party-line vote of 31-23 Thursday — after more than 27 hours of debate. The Ways and Means Committee approved the legislation earlier in the day, and Ryan’s supporters are claiming fresh momentum despite cries of protest.
But it’s not Democrats leading the public resistance.
It’s conservative lawmakers like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.
“This is the closest we will ever get to repealing and replacing Obamacare,” Ryan said at a recent press briefing.
However, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton has voiced new objections over Twitter —
1. House health-care bill can't pass Senate w/o major changes. To my friends in House: pause, start over. Get it right, don't get it fast.
