President Trump says 'let Obamacare implode'

President Trump says 'let Obamacare implode'”

The Senate rejected legislation to dismantle Obamacare by one vote.

Some GOP lawmakers clung to long-shot hopes that some version of the legislation might be revived and that a deal might yet be struck before the fall.

Hours later, House Republicans gathered in the Capitol to take stock of the situation.

He didn't get Congress to repeal it and replace it immediately, or at all as of yet. "And I suspect there are not many folks over here that are interested in that".

A CNN poll released last week found that 83 percent of Republicans favor some form of repeal, while only 11 percent of Republicans want the party to abandon the repeal effort.

Souza has spent the first months of Trump's presidency trolling the Trump administration with his photograph collection. "We told our constituents we would vote that way and when the moment came, when the moment came, most of us did". "We are his equals", he said in an emotional speech to the Senate - his first since being diagnosed. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who counts GOP votes, and Pence.

INSKEEP: Not enough Republicans went along.

Before the vote, at 10:43 p.m. ET, Trump was rooting them on in a tweet: "Go Republican Senators. Go!" "Now, they can fix that, but only if they get their act together and pass pro-growth tax reform and take another stab at..." They're saying, look, we want to see what bill you actually want us to debate. Richard Burr, R-N.C. This was the thing to sort of keep the effort going to repeal.

On Twitter, McCain said the repeal bill "fell short of our promise to repeal & replace Obamacare w/ meaningful reform".

DAVIS: If you remember, you know, earlier this week, John McCain - who was recently given a very serious brain cancer diagnosis - had dramatically returned to Washington to cast a decisive vote that let the Senate begin this health care debate. Get there after waiting for 7 years.

It was an elegant "fuck you" to the Republican agenda, which three days ago he backed in a shameful "aye" vote on a motion to proceed on a nonexistent Obamacare repeal bill. And that he said he would vote yes, hoping the House and Senate would agree on something better at a later date. "That would have a lot of support".

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) said that Senate and House leadership will work to go to conference to hash out the differences between the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA) and the eventually to be passed Senate healthcare bill.

After a comprehensive bill failed on the Senate floor, and a straight-up repeal failed too, McConnell and his top lieutenants turned toward the "skinny repeal".

"Now I think it's appropriate to ask, what are their ideas?" They're not putting forward any amendments yet. Just think of it as a third round of negotiations on health care where the House and Senate would meet at the table and try to come up with a final, final bill.

Trump, meanwhile, continued to express mainly hostility toward the ACA.

From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, though clearly pleased with the outcome of the vote early Friday morning, insisted it was "not a time for celebration, it's a time for relief".

As Republicans weighed working with Democrats, they were also struggling to resolve hard feelings toward one another. Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.

King accused Murkowski of waging a successful write-in reelection campaign in 2010 that "was essentially a revolt against GOP primary voters".

"I can tell you, the president as you mentioned is already engaged this morning", Meadows said.

The political turmoil surrounding USA health care policy has reached fever pitch in Washington. Susan Collins of ME as the only Republicans to vote against the legislation.

The vote concluded, and the results were announced - 49 to 51.

Stunned gasps and some applause echoed through the chamber.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stood stone-faced, his arms crossed.

"It was", McCain said as he got into a auto to head back to Arizona and begin radiation and chemotherapy, "the right vote". Bill Cassidy, R-La. It makes you more motivated to consider it.

Graham said, "The skinny bill as policy is a disaster". Now, it's not clear whether he was talking about, like, we're done - we're not going to deal with this anymore - or whether he was literally saying, let's move on to another bill.
