Trump says ObamaCare replacement vote will happen after 2020 election

They are denouncing Trump's attempt to overturn the ACA in court and floating various health care plans, including an expansion of government-funded Medicare with so called "Medicare for All", setting up a stark contrast between the parties for the campaign trail. Translation: "they have no healthcare plan", Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer held an event outside the Supreme Court urging the Justice Department to reverse its position in the case.

In another tweet, he reiterated comments he made last week that Republicans will be known for healthcare. According to Politico, Mick Mulvaney, Trump's acting chief of staff, "said that taking a bold stance would force Congress into repealing and replacing the law" - even though other cabinet officials opposed the move. Publicly and privately, Republicans tried to talk to Trump.

Trump's latest move allows him to wait on the issue as legal challenges against the health care law, also known as Obamacare, make their way through the federal court system. John McCain cast the deciding vote not to repeal the healthcare plan. Multiple Republican senators who Trump name-checked said they were not a part of a working group, but had spoken with the President about health care recently.

In addition to saying Republicans do not and will not have a plan to replace the ACA anytime soon, Democrats say they're more than happy to campaign on the issue of health care heading into 2020.

He said Senate Republicans going forward will support efforts involving pre-existing conditions and lowering prescription drug prices.

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.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said that by Trump and Senate Republicans saying they plan to hold out on addressing health care until 2021 amounts to the party having "no health care plan" and the "same-old song they've been singing-they're for repeal but no replace".

Unveiling a plan for a Medicare-like public option to be offered under the Affordable Care Act, Sen.

He pointed to the Democrats' control of the House, and said it was his understanding that Trump would develop a health care plan he could tout during the 2020 campaign, in case Republicans win back both chambers of Congress.

Most congressional Republicans, however, are in no mood to return to the battlefield. But Thune said, "you run into that wall of reality", of a divided Congress with Democrats in control of the House, which requires bipartisanship.

"Trying to convey what the obstacles are to getting what he wants to get done in the next two years is something I think a number of our members conveyed to him", Thune said.
