McConnell Tells Trump GOP Not Repealing or Replacing Obamacare

The White House will take the lead this time on Obamacare repeal and replace

"He did say, as he later tweeted, he accepted that and that he would be developing a plan that he would take to the American people during the 2020 campaign, and suggested that is what he would be advocating in a second term if there were a Republican Congress", he said. "'It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America".

After President Trump warned that the GOP needs to take up health care reform or risk getting "clobbered", Karl Rove agreed Wednesday, adding that Republicans need to do all they can to diminish the advantage Democrats now hold on health care ahead of the 2020 election. But Republicans would like to talk about health care as little as possible, and the last thing they want to bring up is preexisting conditions.

Democrats "have health care right now and we need to take that away from them", Trump said, laying out a strategy for the 2020 campaign.

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he "made it clear to [Trump] that we were not going to be doing that in the Senate". Healthcare, especially protections for people with pre-existing conditions, resonates with voters and helped Democrats last November. "I've already begun discussing these ideas with senators and I look forward to moving the bill through the legislative process, thanks to Trump's renewed push for sustainable health care", Westerman told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement Monday. "It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare", Mr. Trump tweeted.

The couple is "deeply saddened by the news and they are thinking of Daphne's family at this time", the source says. Britain's Prince Harry , right, meets Daphne Dunne, 97, left, during a rainy walk in Sydney , Australia, in 2017.

While Trump's references on Tuesday night were not specific, he claimed corruption and fraud previous year in Florida and Arizona elections, where close races took considerable time to resolve.

The GOP's bitter internal fight over health care in 2017 remains a sore subject for the president. After Trump said last week he wanted to try again to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, McConnell faced a revolt from the ranks.

"They are the party that wants to end your health care", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said at a rally on Tuesday. Asked if he had a "moral responsibility" to offer a replacement if the ACA is struck down in court, Hawley said it will remain in place as the case is adjudicated and that "I expect that will take quite some time". John McCain for joining other senators to oppose a last-ditch plan.

The Fox News contributor pointed out that health care is the number two issue for voters, with jobs and the economy being first.

White House adviser contradicts Trump on border plan
Areas along the U.S. -Mexico border would experience the most direct impact, but ripple effects could spread beyond the region. 'I'm ready to close it if I have to close it, ' he told reporters on Tuesday in the Oval Office.

Senator John Cornyn, R, said he did not think that Trump's tweet removed any pressure from Republicans to come up with a healthcare solution - an issue he said he would continue to focus on in his own re-election campaign.

During the 2018 cycle, Democrats attacked all congressional Republicans for efforts to repeal the 2010 health care law, even members who voted against those attempts on the floor.

Just last week, Trump directed the U.S. Justice Department to support a lawsuit aimed at striking down the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Yost argued that while the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate was unconstitutional, it shouldn't invalidate other provisions of the law, such as protections for people with pre-existing conditions. "I don't like it, and you don't like it either".
