Republican Rep. Peter Roskam, a former chief deputy whip and member of the Ways And Means Committee, called during a GOP conference meeting yesterday for the GOP to scrap attempts to reboot Paul Ryan's American Health Care Act, per Politico. He prefers they start from scratch.

Roskam reportedly doesn't want a product that can pass the Senate in its initial form, calling for an "aspirational bill" of conservative ideals that can then be pared down in order to pass both houses.
