Twamp health(don't) care failing

See this article. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.), chairman of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, said he will vote no on the Bill because

"Unfortunately, the legislation before the House today is currently unacceptable as it would place significant new costs and barriers to care on my constituents in New Jersey. In addition to the loss of Medicaid coverage for so many people in my Medicaid-dependent state, the denial of essential health benefits in the individual market raise serious coverage and cost issues."

Several other Republicans are against it for a variety of reasons and the House just doesn't have the votes to pass it. Twamp wants a vote even if it goes down so he can dole out retribution. But the Speaker doesn't want the humiliation.
