The Latest Trump says'let Obamacare implode

That's why the whole effort almost folded even before the final vote, when McCain, Lindsay Graham of SC and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin refused early Thursday evening to vote for the measure without a promise that the House wouldn't pass it.

The U.S. Senate rejected early Friday morning an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace with it a "skinny" version of Trumpcare, raising serious questions about whether President Trump will succeed in his campaign of dismantling Obamacare. Though he has vowed to "let Obamacare implode", he may yet try to revive it. Mr. McCain left a hospital bed to join the health-care debate only to provide the vote that doomed the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare. And so our goal is to make - is to put in place, as well as the president's goal, is to put in place a law, a system, that actually works for patients. The Republicans' aim was to pass the bill and tie it to the GOP House bill that passed in May, and send the package to President Trump's desk.

In fact, the Republicans really needed only 50 votes in the health care debate because Vice President Pence could have provided a tie-breaker. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell would likely need a lot of convincing, since he finally admitted it was "time to move on" after the skinny repeal bill died this week, and he indicated that he would like input from Democrats regarding future health-care lawmaking.

The second portion of the tweet referenced congressional health benefits.

The National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund continues to engage its member base in urging their Senators via phone calls, e-mails, and social media posts to protect our care and vote NO on any form of ACA repeal. In the short term, the Senate intends to move on to defense legislation and the nomination of Christopher Wray to be the next Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

Flanigin noted that the Willsboro Republican serves as co-chair of the GOP's moderate Tuesday Group, "which had a meeting recently with the New Democrat Coalition and one of the issues raised was beginning bipartisan conversations on health care".

The survey found that support for the law still runs along party lines, with nine out of 10 Democrats and just three out of 10 Republicans saying they wanted to keep or modify Obamacare.

Shortly after the health-care effort failed, Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, a strong conservative who has a record of seeking rapprochement with his party's rivals, said he was eager to see what Democrats might offer to address the Obamacare funding crisis. Sixty-three percent of Utah's more than 418,000 Medicaid recipients in 2016 were children under the age of 19, according to the Utah Department of Health's Medicaid data collection.

The individual mandate, he added, may not be as much of a factor in getting people to enroll in coverage as some think, because the Trump administration has indicated it might not enforce it anyway - and the penalty amount is far less than most people would have to pay for health insurance.

The bill was deeply unpopular, but GOP leaders worked to assure members it would never become law. Lawmakers said leaders assured them it was meant as a reference to the Senate's flop.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan ultimately won Graham and Johson over, after issuing a measured statement expressing openness to a House-Senate conference where the bill could be rewritten.

Something seemed afoot before the vote. As Harvard political scientist Archon Fung has argued, stable democracies require that citizens be committed to the rule of law even if they fail to achieve their preferred policies.

Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! When the final option was being voted on, it was understandable that Sen. "By the time they came up with that, which is up to age 7, my son was too old and insurances wouldn't cover anything, so we were just swimming all the time just trying to figure out how to help this boy".

Afterward, it was a different story, with the president tweeting at 2:25 a.m. ET that those who voted no had "let the American people down".
