President Donald Trump's decision to appoint Republicans to his Cabinet ended up killing chances of repealing and replacing Obamacare, Axios is reporting. This group, the "Problem Solvers Caucus" is split nearly evenly between Democrats and Republicans. As a newly registered Kentucky voter, I implore him to begin as the statesmen I know he can be.

Meanwhile, Trump is also receiving pressure from some Senate Republicans to continue the payments-the same lawmakers he has been pushing to try again on a bid to repeal the ACA. Many plan to raise rates an additional 20%. It would have expanded health savings accounts, delayed a tax on medical devices and increased funding for community health centers.

Despite the fact that Trump has advised for something akin to "no action", (aka, the president's "Let Obamacare Implode" rhetoric) other Congress members seem to be moving away from his suggestions.

The Senate plans to debate tax reform after Labor Day.

It was stunning to watch the GOP effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act defeated early Friday. A short-term win isn't worth the cost when it hurts so many Americans.

Few parts of the country are more affected by this issue than the Rio Grande Valley, which has perhaps the highest percentage of uninsured residents of any urban area in the country.
