The delay of a vote in the Senate on the Republican health care bill is adding to mounting frustration over the lack of progress in getting the Trump administrationâ€™s agenda through Congress. One GOP donor says he will withhold funds until his partyâ€™s legislation gets passed.
â€œThere are a lot of donors in Dallas who are frustrated with this and you know, Dallas is truly the piggy bank of the Republican Party at this point,â€ Deason Capital Services President Doug Deason told the FOX Business Networkâ€™s Neil Cavuto.
As a result, Deason is telling Republicans to not bother coming to Dallas, saying, â€œweâ€™re not going to open the checkbooks until you get it done.â€
According to Deason, with control of all three branches of government, Republicans should not be having this much trouble.
He adds Republicans just need to make a decision on how conservative the health care bill should be and go with it.
â€œTheyâ€™ve got great plans and some good amendments to make to it. You know, youâ€™re either going to make it more conservative and lose [Dean] Heller and some votes or they are going to make it more, you know, more like ObamaCare and theyâ€™ll lose Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and Rand Paul, so theyâ€™ve got to make a decision on which way are they going to go.â€
