Republicans Ignore Trump As He Tantrums And Demands That They Repeal Obamacare

With polls showing the Republican Party even more unpopular than the Democratic Party right now, must Republicans do something different as they prepare to defend majorities in Congress and most statehouses in the 2018 elections?

Members of the House and Senate from both parties know what the problems with the ACA are.

President Trump has suggested that Congress should "let Obamacare fail" - the antithesis of leadership.

The measure also would exempt companies employing less than 500 people from the requirement that they now provide insurance, a mandate that now applies to anyone with at least 50 employees.

Alexander's statement is just one of a number of events that seemed inevitable once Republicans failed to pass a repeal bill last.

Paul said that if he were to assign blame on the repeal not passing, he would "direct the blame on those who said they would vote to repeal and then didn't".

In Tuesday´s letter, Democrats said bipartisan tax reform should offer no relief for the wealthy, citing Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin´s assertion last November that there would be no absolute tax cut for the upper class.

US President Donald Trump yesterday raised questions about actions over healthcare that could affect the nation's insurance companies, one day after urging Republican senators to continue working to undo his predecessor's healthcare law.

Hatch, of Utah, said the Senate was too divided to try again, despite President Trump's calls on lawmakers to get back to work.

Along those lines, Senate GOP health committee chairman Lamar Alexander of Tennessee discussed health care Tuesday at a private meeting with the panel's top Democrat, Patty Murray of Washington.

In every county where you still can buy insurance on the exchanges, prices are skyrocketing: Insurers are asking for 18 percent increases this year. But their recommendations have been ignored by Republican leaders who want to kill the patient, not save it.

What are your thoughts on President Trump's infrastructure plan, and what will it bring to Georgia?

John McCain votes no on the GOP's 'skinny repeal' healthcare bill early Friday morning. But they might be if it weren't for the partisan politics that for too long has been played with America's health care.

Hatch said he wants to hold hearings and a regular process on tax reform and wants health care to be a bipartisan effort when the Senate revisits the issue.

Will you make an endorsement for the Georgia Governor's race? For some families, these so-called cost-sharing reductions can bring deductibles all the way down to zero.
