What a pleasure to see that President Trump has a plan to care for the American people struggling under the pressure of ObamaCare. This tweet is just for YOU FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP:
DO NOT WORRY!
ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2017
House Speaker Paul Ryan cancelled the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority. President Trump let Ryan take the lead, and Ryan stepped right in the quick sand of failure. President Trump has respectfully allowed Ryan to do what he felt would work, but those opposing his creation called it Obamacare Lite…not much better than Obamacare.
For myself I felt like the American Health Care Act had to be better than Obamacare. It would have allowed for competition in the Insurance Market Place, and there would be no penalties under the American Health Care Act. President had made the comment when Obamacare explodes, he can then create a new plan. Some consider the pulling of the Bill a bad move, and I tend to agree. But President Trump seems to feel there is hope for the American people to have better health care. I trust him.
His tweet Saturday suggested a willingness to work on a bipartisan plan on overhauling Obamacare – BUT a scenario in which Democrats come to the GOP-controlled Congress to work together on improvements.
Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan on Saturday seemed to be open to such discussions. He acknowledged that Obamacare had its problems, and one of those on the top of the list is too few tax credits for poor Americans to help them pay for the insurance. Praise God, the politicians in Washington actually see this. To overlook the sick and weak in our Country is a travesty under God.
Louisiana GOP Senator Bill Cassidy told Fox News on Saturday that he agrees with Trump’s tweet, suggesting a bipartisan effort.
I, myself, believe President Trump will not turn away from the American people and leave them in the lurch. I think he has something up his sleeve. As far as Paul Ryan he should be home sweating it, because frankly I don’t think he gave the American people suffering under Obamacare too much thought. He is not a favorite of the people right now, and from what I am reading he is not very popular in Washington either.

President Trump hinted Saturday that overhauling ObamaCare is still alive, perhaps through a bipartisan deal, following the effort’s dramatic and seemingly terminal failure a day earlier.
“ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE,” Trump tweeted. “Do not worry!”
Trump tweeted after House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday cancelled the final vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill, upon concluding he didn’t have enough votes despite the chamber’s GOP majority.
“We’re going to be living with ObamaCare for the foreseeable future,” the Wisconsin Republican said afterward, making clear that neither he nor Trump intend to introduce new legislation.
Meanwhile, Trump appeared to already be turning his attention to tax reform and returning to his plan to allow ObamaCare to continue — with the expectation that the 2010 health care law would implode amid increasing costs and few options for Americans.
Still, his tweet Saturday suggested a potential willingness to work on a bipartisan plan on overhauling ObamaCare — albeit a scenario in which Democrats come to the GOP-controlled Congress to work together on improvements.
Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan on Saturday seemed open to such discussions, acknowledging that ObamaCare indeed has problems, including too few tax credits for poor Americans to help them pay for the insurance.
“ObamaCare is not perfect. We need to fix things” he said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “This is all fixable if we sit down as reasonable people.”
Louisiana GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy told Fox News’ “America’s News Headquarters” on Saturday that he agrees with Trump’s tweet, suggesting a bipartisan effort.
