Is Swampcare In Trouble?

I’m being told by folks on Capitol Hill that the Republicans’ swampcare bill is running into headwinds with conservatives. Though it has made it through its initial committee review, it seems conservatives are gathering steam and members are hearing from constituents who do not believe the legislation keeps its promises.

I would not be surprised if the train gets slowed down significantly as they consider big changes to get conservatives on board.
