Republicans seem to have a unity problem

If there is anything we learned during the health care debate, it’s that Republicans are not as united as they want you to believe.

President Trump has targeted the conservative Freedom Caucus, which he says helped to defeat the health care bill. Will Republicans mess up the first chance they've had in eight years to really get things done? Gary Polland with the Texas Conservative Review says it's possible, but also too early to say that.

“One of the things that’s important to keep in mind is that it’s only about seventy days into the administration. It’s not like that much time has elapsed,” Polland explained.

But he says if the GOP can't get their act together, it will come back to haunt them as early as next year in the midterm elections, and it may not be Democrats beating Republicans either.

“I think it’s going to be outsiders taking out the insiders. That’s what I see coming if we don’t accomplish anything. That’s what I see coming,” he said.

Polland says this is what happens when you have a diverse party with different wings like the Republicans have right now with moderates and conservatives.
