America should be waking up this morning and reading these Trump tweets and realizing one important thing, our Commander-in-chief is not a quitter.
Trump knows the problems with Obamacare and so do the Democrats as they built the monster with the goal of it destroying itself thus creating an opportunity for single payer.
Former GOP Rep. Eric Cantor earlier last week told the Washingtonian that Republicans knew they were not dealing from the top of the deck when they were talking repealing Obamacare, which shocked me to read those words coming from him.
Either way, Trump has made it a campaign promise and maybe Republicans can redeem themselves and make it happen, but if we’re being truthful, they probably won’t.
President Donald Trump on Sunday urged Republican senators not to give up trying to pass a healthcare bill, after they failed last week to muster enough votes to repeal and replace parts of Obamacare.
For the second day running Trump tweeted his impatience with Congress’ inability to accomplish its seven-year goal of replacing the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare bill commonly known as Obamacare.
“Don’t give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace …” the president said in a tweet.
Responding to Saturday’s tweet, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said that if the president carried out that threat, “every expert agrees that (insurance) premiums will go up and health care will be more expensive for millions of Americans.”
Some congressional Republicans have said they are trying to find a way forward on healthcare.
However, a majority of Americans are ready to move on from healthcare at this point. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Saturday, 64 percent of 1,136 people surveyed on Friday and Saturday said they wanted to keep Obamacare, either “entirely as is” or after fixing “problem areas.” That is up from 54 percent in January.
This failure doesn’t fall on President Trump. This is on the Republicans as they hold the House and Senate and Trump await the bill to sign. He can try to leverage things to make it happen but some of the individuals in Congress feel they are above him and he must bow to them.
That’s something I promise you that won’t happen.
