President Trump voiced optimism on Thursday that Congress will move to repeal and replace ObamaCare and prevent a government shutdown as early as next week, brushing aside doubts emanating from Capitol Hill.
“I want to get both, are you shocked to hear that,” Trump said at a press conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
“We’re doing very well on healthcare,” he continued. “We will see what happens, but this is a great bill. There’s a great plan, and this will be great healthcare. It is evolving.”
Trump did not commit to a vote on ObamaCare repeal legislation next week, but said he would like to see that happen.
“The plan gets better and better and better, and it has gotten really, really good,” he said. “A lot of people are liking it a lot. We have a good chance of getting it soon. I would like to say next week, but it will be — I believe we will get it, and whether it is next week or shortly thereafter.”
So Republicans are closing in on a deal to try — again — to push their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare through the House.
The compromise, first reported by Matt Fuller and Jonathan Cohn at The Huffington Post, would allow states to obtain a waiver from the federal government to do away with certain protections from the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.
I always said it would still happen, just a matter of time. Many things to do, and so little time has passed, but President Trump is keeping his promises, just show a little patience.
If the the Liberal elite had to use Obama care they would be right there with the people saying get rid of it but NO they don’t have to have it they have an elite health care so they could care less out us.
Make them take it as there health care an watch it get changed quickly just like SS they don’t have that so they don’t care what we get or how poorly we live.
The people in gov need to have to live as we do and when they are done then need to not get any pay since they are NOT working (even like they don’t work now for the people but get paid) No Pay No health care and No retirement and watch how quickly things change.
They are no better then we the people so why treat them any differently. they were voted in to work for us but they only care and work for themselves.
Term limits and No pay when they are out. Lets level the playing field and see how fast they do what they were voted in to do.
