'I'm not hospitalized,' Cochran says in response to Trump's tweet

'I'm not hospitalized,' Cochran says in response to Trump's tweet”

Trump, in two tweets early Wednesday morning, said, "We will have the votes for Healthcare but not for the reconciliation deadline of Friday, after which we need 60".

President Donald Trump tweeted his assurance Wednesday that Republicans will have enough votes to repeal Obamacare, one day after the GOP canceled its vote on the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill due to a lack of support.

It was not immediately clear whether any senators are now in the hospital - though reporters later discovered that Sen. A Cochran aide said Cochran was not in the hospital.

Republican Sen. Thad Cochran wants his constituents - and possibly President Donald Trump, as well - to know that although he's recuperating from a urological issue in MS, he's not now in a hospital.

Senate Republicans abandoned their latest effort to repeal President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act on Tuesday after failing to secure sufficient support.

Mr. Trump says that he's nearly certain Republicans have the votes to pass legislation to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature heath care law. With only 52 Republican Senate members, the leadership and the bill's authors yanked the vote. But the problem is we can't have them by Friday because ... reconciliation ends on Friday, so we'll have to do it in January or February.

"Trump just said 6 times that Graham-Cassidy failed because 'there was a senator in the hospital, '" tweeted CNBC reporter Christina Wilkie. Susan Collins, Rand Paul and John McCain said they wouldn't back the legislation. However, he also plans to negotiate with Democrats to "see if I can get a health care plan that's even better".
