DON SURBER: It's now called Ryancare, and everyone hates it!
And the Freedom Caucus and all the rest negotiated the best deal they can. While the groups may have 20, 30, or even 40 votes, Trump holds the rest of the votes.

Republicans may hate him all they want, but they realize their success relies on his success. A dead president walking is the last thing they want going into next year's midterm election.

And President Trump needs them just as much.

He issued an ultimatum to pass Ryancare? I see it as a sign he has the 218 votes he needs to get the bill to the Senate, get it passed, and move on to the real prize, which is a tax overhaul that will kick this economy into high gear and start chalking up those annual 4% growths in the GDP.

If not, move on to the real prize, which is a tax overhaul that will kick this economy into high gear and start chalking up those annual 4% growths in the GDP.

We shall see.
And so we shall!
