Trump Wants GOP to Run on Healthcare

Trump's new tweets shifted his rationale for the "Obamacare" fight.

The first nominee considered, Jeffrey Kessler to be an assistant secretary of Commerce, was ultimately confirmed by voice vote after the two hours of post-cloture debate allowed under the new process was declared expired. Then he said he never expected there to be any votes at all until after 2020.

In his tweets, Trump claimed that a bill is in the works. But in keeping the issue at the forefront, the president put fresh attention on the GOP's long-running and thus far unsuccessful effort to end ACA.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY) (L), and Sen. Any plan that adheres to conservative principles on health care will be abhorrent to Democrats and hugely unpopular with the public. Rick Scott ultimately unseated the incumbent Democrat.

A coalition of 20 states, including West Virginia, brought forward a lawsuit arguing the health care law is unconstitutional, noting the repeal of the individual mandate provision in the 2017 tax law. He often retells the story of the late Arizona Sen. Republicans, hit hard on health care issues during the 2018 midterm election, had no plans to take up the issue again before the next one.

President Donald Trump, a Republican, has pledged to deliver a better healthcare system than Obamacare if the Supreme Court tosses out his predecessor's signature domestic achievement. The sudden move stunned GOP leaders on Capitol Hill. The usually tight-lipped leader said afterward that the president agreed to shelve his health care push until after the campaign.

"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.

Facing a court deadline, Trump seized on health care last week, backing a lawsuit seeking to strike down the Affordable Care Act.

President Donald Trump's Senate GOP allies, frustrated by delays in confirming dozens of lower-profile nominees, are forcing through a rules change to cut back debate on most of his picks.

President Trump and his minions such as Congressman Jim Hagedorn want to destroy critical health insurance reforms, but have no replacement plan.

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

McConnell explained to Trump that senators are open to tackling specific aspects of health care - namely, trying to lower prescription drug prices, according to a person who was granted anonymity to discuss the private call.

"I think you could have a long, drawn-out crisis in which our institutions lose credibility", Levitsky said.

What makes this widespread Republican subscription to asinine conspiracy theories about election stealing especially unsafe is that it reflects and feeds their leader's inability to accept electoral setbacks as legitimate.

Roy Blunt (R-MO) (R) as he arrives at a Senate Republican weekly policy luncheon at the U.S. Capitol March 26, 2019 in Washington, D.C. While Trump has renewed his attacks on Obamacare, new poll shows Americans have more trust in Democrats and Barack Obama when it comes to health care than they do in Republicans and President Trump.
