McCain: GOP Must Come Together on Health Care Bill or Risk 2018 Defeat
Can House Republicans come together to pass a health care bill?
The "Outnumbered" hosts debated what the party should do, as House Freedom Caucus members met at the White House on their objections to the legislation.

A moderate Republican lawmaker, Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, said Wednesday he would vote "no" on the bill in its current form, saying it won't work for "low-to-moderate income and older individuals."
Democrat Marie Harf said Republicans will take a "big gamble" with this bill, noting the CBO and experts say millions will lose health coverage and costs will rise.
Meghan McCain said this is a time when Republicans of all stripes need to come together, emphasizing that the party is not "one big myopic entity."
She said the Freedom Caucus needs to also "come to the table" and realize they're not the majority of the GOP.
McCain said Republicans will suffer in the midterm elections if they cannot deliver on their seven years of promises to repeal and replace ObamaCare with something better.
"If we don't get something through with at least the broad strokes that will appease both sides, then nothing else really matters going forward," she argued.
Charles Krauthammer said last night that the failure of the bill would do significant political damage to Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan.
Ryan wanted to vote on the bill today or tonight, but the scheduling remains unclear with no deal reached between Republicans.
