Trump Says Vote On Healthcare Plan Can Wait Until After 2020 Election

President Donald Trump Wednesday morning did an about-face, a week or so after he renewed his battle against the Affordable Care Act that bears the name of his number one nemesis. In response, I argued that he was putting his party in an uncomfortable position by forcing Republicans to talk about an issue they would much prefer to avoid altogether.

It is unclear with what Republicans would replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, if the courts rule to abolish the law before the 2020 presidential election.

With his tweet Tuesday Trump made clear there would be no vote until after the 2020 election, though he insisted a GOP plan still was in the works.

Trump accuses Democrats of seeking "a socialist takeover of American healthcare", and is certain to take that argument onto the 2020 campaign trail.

FDF chief executive Ian Wright said: " After today's [March 29] vote, Parliament must lead us out of our current shambles". He said: "I'm convinced at that after spending a lot of time meeting with and talking to officials in Europe".

It'll be truly great.

After threatening last week to seal the border if Mexico did not immediately halt all illegal immigration into the US, Trump on Wednesday appeared to be laying the groundwork for a delay, saying he was happy with steps taken by Mexico and that he would like to see Congress pass legislation revising the immigration system.

"The best-laid plans and best of intentions with regard to an overhaul of the health care system in this country run into the wall of reality that it's going to be very hard to get a Democrat House and a Republican Senate to agree on something", added Senate Republican Whip John Thune. "We have to be a little bit careful because I don't like the way the votes are being tallied".

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. They can swear up and down that they'll figure out some way to restore the protection, but they know that voters don't really believe them. Of the 1,945 people polled, 41 percent of voters said they had more trust in congressional Republicans.

After the New York Times published an article on Tuesday claiming Trump "backed off plans" to replace Obamacare, the president took to Twitter again to set the record straight and take a jab at the paper.

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". But that's only half true. Any plan that adheres to conservative principles on health care will be abhorrent to Democrats and hugely unpopular with the public.

Republican senators Rick Scott and Josh Hawley held a news conference to discuss legislation to reduce the cost of prescription drug prices and increase transparency for consumers. The trouble with that is that Democrats don't need a specific Republican plan to attack. And while Republicans gained Senate seats last fall, there's no indication that GOP senators want another fight over repealing "Obamacare", particularly not those up for re-election next year. They needed to take the House, then the Senate, then the presidency. They want to let insurers offer junk insurance that covers nearly nothing. "There are a lot of great things that we can do together".
