Trump calls Obama a copycat for saying health bill is 'mean'

President Trump admits to calling the bill "mean."

"Well they are also four good guys and they are four friends of mine I think that they'll probably get there but we'll have to wait and see", President Trump said on "Fox & Friends". "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

Schumer said Democrats have been clear they will cooperate with Republicans if they agree to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.

On the floor of the senate chamber, majority leader Mitch McConnell unveiled a draft of Republicans' legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare amid protests around the capitol.

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, a doctor and one of roughly 13 Republican senators who crafted the bill in closed-door sessions, strongly disagreed with Durbin's assessment.

Sens. Paul Ryan of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin all said they would not support the current bill after its long-awaited reveal.

"I don't have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to review the Senate bill".

We've already been hearing from lawmakers, medical advocacy groups and insurers these last couple of days, so we wanted to turn to somebody who has been covering health policy for quite some time.

He said the Senate bill "doesn't even begin" to address the rising cost of health care.

Price said he had spoken with Heller and Sandoval to elaborate on his full vision for the proposed health care overhaul.

The outside forces against the bill also appear to be growing: Top lieutenants in the conservative Koch brothers' political network sharply criticized the legislation over the weekend, saying it was insufficiently conservative and did not do enough to rein in the growth of Medicaid.

"The senate republican bill is a tax giveaway to the wealthiest". And it would keep more of Obamacare's insurance regulations than the House legislation.

Despite opposition to Medicaid expansion by Gov. Rick Scott and Florida's Republican-led legislature, the Sunshine State has led the country in enrollment on the Affordable Care Act exchange, with almost 1.7 million consumers.

But in physicians' offices and medical centers, in state capitols and corporate offices, there are growing fears the cuts proposed in the legislation would create even larger problems in the US health care system.

The problem facing GOP leaders is that any changes that move the bill further to the right has the potential to alienate moderate Republicans.

And the Democratic wall of opposition is backed by less partisan voices. In addition to her concerns about Medicaid, Collins has critiqued the bill for blocking funding to Planned Parenthood.

President Trump says he believes that backers of a sweeping GOP healthcare measure are "going to get there" and pass the measure despite the refusal of five Republican senators to endorse the bill as written.

The doubts about the latest plan from Washington came from Republicans, Democrats and the nation's one independent governor. They assert that Democrats have no constructive solutions.

Sanders has long advocated a single-payer health care system, what he calls "Medicare for all", and he repeated that position on Meet the Press on Sunday.

But that criticism comes amid a striking shift in public opinion.
