I've seen others floating the idea around as well but from the angle that he accused a former president of a felony. As others have said though as long as he didn't lie under oath it's all in play and he's fine.

That's the plot of a sitcom screenplay I'm currently working on.

Can you imagine what it must be like to be a member of the republican congress right now who's up for re-election in two years? You have Trump, Ryan, and Bannon beating you over the head to jump on board Trumpcare, yet you have a constituency that for the most part already hate it.

I was going to ask if you had seen any polls showing right wing dissent of the bill before I researched and found this

Yes it's fox but looking at this it's a well done poll.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is holding the first public hearing on Russia’s efforts to influence the election.

Wow.

Trumpcare
17% - strongly favor
40% - strongly oppose

Why do you oppose Trumpcare
21% - doesn't change Obamacare enough
67% - changes Obamacare too much

That last one is a doozy.

Not really

The Republican party is far right of what the majority of Americans believe

The Democratic party however is only slightly further to the left as compared to the average voter

Pretty much. The Republicans have been able to define the national conversation to an extent that their positions are at least acceptable for debate, whereas the more liberal views of the Democrats are politically embarrassing. All things being equal both sides would probably be equally far right/left, but the political reality has hamstrung the Democrats.
