Trump's effort to replace Obamacare in disarray

Trump's effort to replace Obamacare in disarray”

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for Democrats and Republicans to work together. They joined two GOP colleagues, Senators Susan Collins (Maine) and Rand Paul (Kentucky), in opposing the bill.

Some Senate Republicans are already speaking out against a plan to dismantle the ACA without implementing replacement legislation, proposed Monday night, reports Politico. McConnell could only afford to lose two Republican votes to move forward with a straight repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

A "disappointed" President Donald Trump said Tuesday he wants to "let Obamacare fail" after the latest Republican attempt to overhaul the USA health-care system quickly fizzled out. But even if that rule were changed to apply broadly to legislation, it would make no difference in the current situation facing Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He spoke Tuesday, the morning after the GOP bill collapsed under opposition from Republican senators.

"In the coming days, the Senate will take up and vote on a repeal of Obamacare combined with a stable, two-year transition period as we work toward patient-centered health care". He says that would give lawmakers time to craft a replacement. Still, he's making a last-ditch effort to find some way to revive his party's seemingly failed efforts on the bill.

She said she would vote "no" on any effort to take up legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, enacted on then President Barack Obama's watch. Trump told reporters at the White House.

November 2012: "Obamacare is the law of the land."

"You know, I'd like to see a bill that people actually liked", Graham said, drawing laughs from the press.

Wadleigh said they're getting ready for open enrollment for 2018, and are hoping to keep insurance carriers on the exchange as regulators consider their requests for rate increases.

President Donald Trump's goal for Wednesday's luncheon with Senate Republicans is to drive home his view that inaction is not an option on health care.

A full repeal could leave them all without insurance coverage. We're allowing eight democrats to control what we do in the senate and the President's right.

President Donald Trump is blasting Democrats and "a few Republicans" over the failure of the Republican effort to write a new health care law.

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

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, July 18. In this way, though he says otherwise, this move by McConnell preserves the policy at the expense of the Senators who voted against it.

McConnell's "Plan C", as the Times calls it, was a punitive measure to embarrass so-called moderate Republican Senators, to remind them that they need to be more frightful if they want to stay in this party.
