Trump Wants GOP to Run on Healthcare

"We had a good conversation yesterday afternoon and I pointed out to him the Senate Republicans' view on dealing with comprehensive health care reform with a Democratic House of Representatives", McConnell told reporters Tuesday, describing his conversation with Trump.

What makes this widespread Republican subscription to asinine conspiracy theories about election stealing especially risky is that it reflects and feeds their leader's inability to accept electoral setbacks as legitimate. He blamed Democrats for dragging their feet on a variety of noncontroversial candidates simply because they were nominated by President Trump. He said the delays are a relitigation of the 2016 presidential election. "I want to put it after the election".

The House's resolution would condemn the Justice Department for supporting a federal judge's decision regarding "Obamacare;" attorneys said last week it supported the December ruling by Judge Reed O'Connor of the Northern District of Texas on the health care law. Trump's motivations were as political as they were legislative.

As an example, McConnell said senate Republicans would be "working on prescription drug pricing and other issues".

"As health care is pushed to the forefront of the 2020 agenda, our polling suggests President Trump may struggle to attract voters with his promise of a new plan", said Tyler Sinclair of Morning Consult. Republicans are hoping that they can confirm as many of Trump's conservative picks as possible while they control the Senate and White House.

Trump and McConnell had not spoken for days.

"Republicans failed to pass any of their health care plans in Congress, so they're trying to repeal health care in court". Facing a revolt from the ranks, McConnell told the president he needed him to listen, according to a person who was granted anonymity to discuss the private call.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., used a complex procedural maneuver, known as the nuclear option, to cut debate for lower-level nominees from 30 hours to two hours.

That's why, he continued, Trump has decided the only way to get healthcare reform accomplished would be to "win the election, take the House back, and then we'll go to work on lowering costs for the American people and give them more access". Trump said in a series of tweets on April 1. "We don't have a misunderstanding about that".

That arrangement suits Democrats just fine. "The fact is it's not, its got highly concentrated with big companies running the show and I think its incumbent on the industry if it doesn't want one business partner with the federal government to start doing a better job", said Braun.

All Senate Democrats opposed the move, and they were joined by two Republicans - Susan Collins of ME and Mike Lee of Utah.

On Tuesday, Democrats seized on Trump's punting of the issue until after the elections.

You might say, well, of course not - Democrats control the House, and they won't approve of any Republican health care plan. "We have to protect and can not run away from a thing called preexisting conditions". John McCain's "no" vote that killed the repeal-and-replace effort. Publicly and privately, Republicans tried to talk to Trump.
