Most conservatives opposed Paul Ryan’s healthcare bill. It was Obamacare lite. It included many of the provisions already found in Obamacare like covering preexisting conditions and forcing people to buy plans they don’t need.

The reason why it failed is because the staunchest conservatives and libertarians opposed the bill. That’s just the reality. 

Bernie Sanders, trying to score a win off the failure of the bill, claims it’s a defeat of “right wing extremists. What he doesn’t realize because he and most Democrats are tone deaf is that now republicans have a path to a real extreme full repeal. 

Watch Bernie brag over the perceived win.
