Trump says he never expected health care vote before 2020 election

John Kennedy Quote Healthcare

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Austin, recently co-wrote an op-ed for Fox News that said lawmakers should "embrace the opportunity to present a third way for health care in America" - with the states taking the lead - instead of "letting fear and tepidity rule the day".

He elaborately imitated a confused Republican congressman who did not have an answer to the high cost of health care. Trump said it was essential for Republicans to campaign on health care.

"I think the Supreme Court will find that you cut out the tumor, you don't kill the patient", said Yost.

Reversing himself in the face of Republican consternation, Mr. Trump said his party would not produce a health care plan of its own, as he had promised, until after the elections, meaning he will only try to fulfill his first-term promise to repeal and replace his predecessor's signature program if he wins a second term.

Trump has named three Republican senators, Rick Scott of Florida, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and John Barrasso of Wyoming, to spearhead health care efforts.

Trump doubled down Wednesday morning, saying he believes health care "will be a great campaign issue" for Republicans. "Republicans should not run away from health care, you can't do it, you're going to be clobbered".

The language of the Democrats' resolution is pointed in condemning Trump's action.

Trump pivoted on two big policy fronts this week, easing up on his threats to quickly close the southern border and deciding that a fresh effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act should wait until after the 2020 election. He often retells the story of the late Arizona Sen.

Barr said Trump would have the right to assert executive privilege over parts of the report. Congressional investigations also are swirling around the president.

While Trump's references on Tuesday night were not specific, he claimed corruption and fraud past year in Florida and Arizona elections, where close races took considerable time to resolve. John McCain for joining other senators to oppose a last-ditch plan. They insist that they're working on a plan like busy little bees, and the vice president's chief of staff says "the president will be putting forward plans this year" - plural! - but no one is contradicting Trump on his assertion that the phantom plan will not become a legislative reality until 2021.

At least three Republicans - Maryland governor Larry Hogan, former MA governor Bill Weld and former OH governor John Kasich - are considering primary challenges to the president, but the campaign has already tasked aides with making sure all delegates at next year's convention are committed to Trump. They saw how the issue played in 2018, when Democrats made it the cornerstone of their successful drive to win back the House.

Almost 110,000 Central New Yorkers, enough people to fill more than two Carrier Domes to the rafters, would lose their health insurance if the federal Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was scrapped.

According to AP VoteCast, a survey of more than 115,000 Midterm voters nationwide, almost 4 in 10 Democratic voters identified healthcare as the most important among a list of key issues.

With Democrats controlling the House, any attempt to dismantle the law could not pass Congress.

Trump's move suggests he is willing to debate the future of the USA healthcare system during the 2020 presidential election campaign than try to reach agreement on a plan sooner.

Facing a court deadline, Trump seized on health care last week, backing a lawsuit seeking to strike down the Affordable Care Act. "Some of you, I'm still a bit angry at some of you, but not all of you". Of the 1,945 people polled, 41 percent of voters said they had more trust in congressional Republicans.
