Thank you, President Trump! People’s lives are on the line, and they need to know now about the future of their health care.
President Trump on Wednesday told Republican senators he doesn’t want Congress to leave Washington for the August recess until lawmakers pass a health care bill.
“Frankly, I don’t think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we can give our people great health care,” Trump said during a lunch with senators at the White House. “Because we’re close. We’re very close.”
God bless President Trump, for WE THE PEOPLE know he really tries. He has to try harder than any President in history, as no President has ever had the blockade put in front of them as President Trump has.
President Trump graciously invited all Republican Senators to lunch on Wednesday in the State Dining Room to discuss how to push through health care legislation in Congress.
The Senate Republicans’ latest bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare collapsed Monday as more Republican senators announced their opposition to the specifics in the replacement. All Democrats were expected to oppose the bill. Do these public servants realize the lives they are destroying? How can they take a vacation and not care about the responsibilities they are refusing to accept?
In response, Trump initially called on Congress to just repeal the law now and figure out a replacement later, something Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is proceeding with. But speaking to senators at the lunch, the president suggested he’d still like to see Congress repeal and replace the law simultaneously.
“We can repeal,” Trump said. “But we should repeal and replace. And we shouldn’t leave town until this is complete. Until this bill is on my desk. And until we all go over to the Oval Office. I’ll sign it and we can celebrate for the American people.”
White House aides Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Marc Short and Stephen Miller joined the lunch, as did Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma.
See how hard our President is trying to get things done for WE THE PEOPLE! Nevertheless, it is not looking good.
McConnell may not have the votes from Republicans for this effort either: West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Maine Sen. Susan Collins have all signaled they are against legislation that would repeal ObamaCare without offering a replacement.
Republicans have 52 seats in the Senate. McConnell can lose
only two Republican votes if all Democrats vote against the effort.
President Trump wants to repeal and replace now, and that is the only thing that makes sense!
