Trump says ObamaCare replacement vote will happen after 2020 election

Trump says ObamaCare replacement vote will happen after 2020 election”

Healthcare, especially protections for people with pre-existing conditions, resonates with voters and helped Democrats last November.

"Translation: They have no healthcare plan", he said. Instead they were reassured that once Nixon was president, his secret plan to end the Vietnam War would be implemented and that intractable conflict brought to a merciful close.

It soon became clear, however, that other Republicans had little appetite to take on an issue that benefited Democrats during last year's midterm elections.

"Certainly the president wants to be the 'party of health care, ' it's one he wants to see us address, he'd love to be able to address it now but we know that Democrats are controlled by the far, radical left-wing part of their party, and they are at total contrast to what we need and what the president wants to see happen when it comes to health care", Sanders said.

"Trump closed the thread with a final message: ".back the House.

Sanders continued defending the Republican's diligent efforts to craft a health care alternative, telling Fox News on Tuesday the Democrats are to blame for no push forward in Washington.

"The Republican Party is still trying to take away the health care of millions of Americans, they're just sick and exhausted of being blamed for it, despite the blame falling right on their shoulders", Schumer said on Capitol Hill this week.

But Thune said, "you run into that wall of reality", of a divided Congress with Democrats in control of the House, which requires bipartisanship.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump will "hold Americans hostage through 2020" on an issue that affects millions of people. Tim Kaine, D-Va., called the president's tweeting "a classic Trump mis-direction". "The Republican plan is manifold", Conway insisted Sunday, echoing both Sanders and Trump's later comments.

According to AP VoteCast, a survey of more than 115,000 midterm voters nationwide, almost 4 in 10 Democratic voters identified health care as the most important among a list of key issues.

With Democrats controlling the House, any attempt to dismantle the law could not pass Congress.

Trump said Thursday he's asked Republican senators to work on a replacement to the Affordable Care Act, but no such group appears to exist.

He said Republicans "are going to work together to come up with something that's really spectacular". If it's upheld - as it has been in previous Supreme Court challenges - he can rail against a "liberal" court system.

The tweets from Trump come after the Justice Department informed a federal appeals court last week that it approved of an appeals court decision that stated that the entire Obamacare statute is unconstitutional.

In his late-Monday tweets, Trump claimed Republicans are developing a plan with cheaper premiums and deductibles that "will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America".
