Trump to Republican senators: Let's talk ObamaCare over lunch

Latest Version Of Trumpcare Officially Dead As Two More GOP Senators Declare Opposition

Latest Version Of Trumpcare Officially Dead As Two More GOP Senators Declare Opposition

President Trump, speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room, dished out plenty of blame for Democrats and Republicans alike. "Then everyone is going to have to come together and fix it".

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, expressed frustration at this own Republican colleagues.

Taking to Twitter, Mr Trump doubled down on his idea "to let Obamacare fail". "I'll take a look at it, but I'm concerned about something that would simply repeal, and its impact on cost and choices".

"I think we're probably in that position where we'll just let Obamacare fail", the president said.

In the meantime, Trump said, "I'm not gonna own it".

The collapse of his fellow Republicans' push to repeal and replace Obamacare with their own health care bill in the Senate again raised doubts in financial markets about Trump's ability to enact tax cuts and infrastructure spending. They have the House, the Senate, the Oval Office, and the Supreme Court.

So we'll see what happens.

Fox News contributor Erick Erickson bluntly called on Republicans in the Senate to "replace Mitch McConnell so that President Trump can actually get some of his legislative policies advanced". Repealing Obamacare was considered critical to amassing savings for passing a tax cut later this year, and many members of Congress are anxious about giving up the effort after expending so much of Trump's early political capital.

Toomey, meanwhile, was angry Republicans failed to pass the previous bill he'd helped craft.

"We will now try a different way to bring the American people relief from Obamacare", McConnell said on Tuesday as he opened the Senate, where the Republicans hold a razor-thin 52-48 majority. "I regret that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failures of Obamacare will not be successful", he said on the Senate floor this morning. "That doesn't mean we should give up". "I have serious concerns about how we continue to provide affordable care to those who have benefited from West Virginia's decision to expand Medicaid".

In addition, by 39 percent to 14 percent, Americans said they expected worse access to quality care rather than better access under the GOP bill, with 43 percent saying nothing would change.

Republicans made a commitment to the American people.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told the press Tuesday afternoon that he was holding out hope for a vote. "Rather, it is a disaster".

Sanders echoed Mr. Trump's earlier comments that the process of reforming health care is far from over, telling reporters that "the only thing that's dead here is Obamacare". This was literally minutes after Trump had finished a strategy dinner with Republican leaders on how to vote on the bill this week. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, said "Not much".

McConnell indicated he would move forward with a motion to repeal the ACA without a replacement. Some Republicans want an outright repeal, while others in more moderate states do not want to strip coverage from their constituents.
