The President Explodes Over Obamacare Double Standard: ,,Why Won’t Congress And Public Pay The Same?”

Trump took the Congress to task over its double standard on participation in the Affordable Care Act. He issued a blunt salvo on Monday morning:

Trump has been clear about him being frustrated that the Republican-led Congress’s is unable to get a repeal-and-replace legislative package on his desk to sign. Couple of days ago, the Republican effort to even pass a “skinny repeal” of Obamacare collapsed in spectacular fashion.

“We have the same problem for seven years: we’ve been telling what we’re against and what we’re opposed to, we’re given seven months to govern and all we can come up with is this skinny plan on 24 hours’ notice?” asked Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

Trump was clear when he said he is not a fan of the ACA, even pointing out that “Obamacare is death.” Less clear is what Trump and the Republicans intend to replace Obamacare with.

Expectations for a repeal-and-replace package to succeed are rising now that the Republican Party has control of the Senate. That makes them a target, even as control of the Senate seems all but assured after the 2018 elections. And the president is turning up the heat.
