The measure is the product of weeks of negotiations between party conservatives and moderates. To fix even so, the two GOP factions have been in the location of their final differences and vote-counters have not yet got a majority.

“There are no easy fixes to this problem, and Washington is bad at finding long-term solutions,” Johnson said. “But this is not a simple problem and that is why we need to invest in a long-term solution.”
