President Trump made a dire claim on his social media page saying that he was going to “let Obamacare fail.” Without regard for the millions of people who got insurance from the landmark legislation or all the young people who it has helped stay on their parents’ plans until they are 26, Trump would rather the average America go without health insurance and suffer. And this seems to be the GOP consensus. Rather than working with the Democrats to make Obamacare better, they want to “repeal and replace.” Too bad they don’t have any plan. And Trump & his GOP cronies are going to make Americans like you suffer before they’re not willing to work with Democrats on the issue.
After Trump issued his ominous threat to “let Obamacare fail,” the White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stepped up to clean up the mess from Trump’s Twitter temper tantrum.
Now she’s saying that because the GOP cannot work with the Democrats, it is the Democrats’ fault. So on Tuesday, she said the Democrats will need to “clean up the mess” and fix everything because they don’t know how to do it.
The White House briefing was off-camera on Tuesday and a reported asked Sanders why it was “acceptable” to let Obamacare fail. The short-sighted assistant press secretary had an answer ready to go.
“Hopefully with the collapse of the program [Democrats] put in place,” she said, “they be more wiling to come to the table to clean up the mess. I think the thing that’s dead here is Obamacare,” Sanders added.
Now Trump is humiliated. So he has demanded that his GOP Senators skip their vacation to find a plan that can replace Obama’s Affordable Care Act. And although he doesn’t really know, Trump claims that GOP lawmakers are “very close” to taking away Obama’s name from the healthcare bill.
“People should not leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we give our people great health care,” Trump said at the beginning of the lunch. “We’re close, very close … We have to hammer this out and get it done.”
Meanwhile, some Republicans are against Trump’s plot to scam Americans out of healthcare. Republican Senator Heller received a threatening letter after a break-in and now Trump is verbally attacking him in public.
“He wants to remain a senator, doesn’t he?” Trump said of Heller. “And I think the people of your state, which I know very well, I think they’re going to appreciate what you hopefully will do.’’
Trump is desperate to persuade the Republicans to vote against Obamacare, take away healthcare from the people and give the profits to the insurance corporations. “Any senator voting against starting debate is telling the American people you’re fine with Obamacare.”
“I’m ready to act,” Trump said. “I have my pen in hand. I’m sitting in that office. I have pen in hand. You’ve never had that before. For seven years, you’ve had the easy route — we repeal, we replace, but he (Obama) never signs it. I’m signing it. So it’s a little different.”
