Trump confirms he called the Republicans' healthcare bill 'mean'

26 Juin 2017

US President Donald Trump delivers his weekly address, focussing on healthcare.

Trump said he does not think Republicans voicing objections to the party's proposal are "that far off" from supporting it.

He also signalled that last-minute changes were coming to win enough support for passage. Other Republican lawmakers have also voiced reservations, casting doubt on the outcome.

"These bills are not going to fix the problem. they're throwing money at things. let's actually fix the problem", Johnson said.

President Donald Trump is bemoaning what he calls "the level of hostility" that he says has stymied bipartisanship in Washington.

Five influential conservatives, including former presidential candidates Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas, have indicated strong initial opposition to the bill - they believe it does not go almost far enough - and Republican moderates have deep qualms, especially over cuts that imperil the battle against opioid addiction, with some worrying that too many Americans will be left without health care.

Obama took to Facebook on Thursday to speak out against the Senate bill, calling it 'mean'. "I want to see a bill with heart", he added. "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it".

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., one of the five senators opposing the bill, said he also wants to review the CBO score. Trump said on Saturday on his personal Twitter account. He is seeking to push a final package through the Senate before the July 4 recess.

Mr Edwards assumed they would be playing for a local club, but was quickly corrected. Edwards said it took him a while to click on to who he was staying with.

At least two Republican senators on Sunday said that goal may prove too ambitious. "They're not going to go down after the Republican bill". Tammy Baldwin, said Sunday on WISN's "Upfront with Mike Gousha" that many Wisconsinites with health issues are telling her they're "panicked" by the proposed GOP health care changes.

Collins says another seven to eight senators including herself remain troubled about the possible Medicaid cuts.

Moderates are concerned that the bill places caps on federal Medicaid funding, impacting millions of low-income Americans who rely on the Medicaid programs administered by their states. "I think a few more days to consider would be helpful", he said.

The Senate draft comes over a month after the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on May 4. Better Care would also limit government spending on the rest of the Medicaid program, giving states a set amount to spend per person rather than the insurance program's now open-ended funding commitment.

"I'm for 100 percent repeal, that's what I want, but if you offer me a 90 percent repeal, I'd probably vote for it". Famous last words, right? "I think they'll get some points". "We don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare".

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Democrats have been clear they will cooperate with Republicans if they agree to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.

The Democrats never resolved their differences - Mr. Kennedy far outshone the president at the party's New York City convention with his "the hope still lives and the dream shall never die" speech, one of the great perorations of the last quarter of the 20th century - and the president suffered a punishing defeat in November that led to a dozen years of Republican occupation of the White House. "We should not be voting on this next week". There's no way we should be voting on this next week. "Their theme is resist". GOP Senator Susan Collins of ME, who has not yet said she will vote against the bill, expressed reservations towards it to news outlets today. Defections from just three of the Senate's 52 Republicans would doom the legislation.

He told ABC's "This Week" the GOP has "at best, a 50-50 chance". Johnson spoke on NBC's "Meet the Press".
