Pat and Stu: Why are so many Republicans ignoring conservative concerns about new health care bill?

The House Republicans' health care reform bill, known as the American Health Care Act, is currently making its way through the lower chamber under the guidance of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and with full support from President Donald Trump.

The bill, which is intended to replace the 2010 Affordable Care Act championed and signed by former President Barack Obama, has been met with concern and questions from conservative leaders and lawmakers, many of whom have taken to derisively calling the new bill "Obamacare Lite." But many Republicans appear to be going along with GOP leadership's wishes.

Even Breitbart.com, the famously pro-Trump alt-right news website once run by top Trump adviser Steve Bannon, has been extremely critical of AHCA and of the Trump administration's ardent support for the House GOP bill. Breitbart has found itself in the awkward position of broadly supporting Trump while devoting copious coverage to conservative voices who oppose what has been dubbed "Trumpcare."

Thursday evening on "Pat & Stu," Stu Burguiere lamented the blind allegiance many Republicans were showing by unquestioningly supporting the bill.

"Even Breitbart is critical of this health care bill, yet still it's going to get 80 percent support of Republicans. It still will," Stu exclaimed. "I mean, I don't know what you do. You cannot move your country forward policy-wise when no one cares about policies. Everyone only cares about their person."
