Trump wants it done…now!
Donald Trump promised to the people that he would take care of Obamacare. He campaigned on it. Multiple times attempts at getting it done have failed and Congress is to blame. Trump is furious.
During a luncheon, Trump called out congress and said that the August recess should be canceled until they get Obamacare taken care of! No vacation until the work is done! Scroll down for more.
President Trump told GOP senators at the White House on Wednesday that they should cancel their August recess and not leave town until acting to repeal ObamaCare.
“We shouldn’t leave town until this is complete,” he said during a lunch at the White House. “We should hammer this out and get it done.”
Trump also said that repeal isn’t enough, and that Republicans should also replace ObamaCare with new legislation.
“We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace,” he said.
“Frankly I don’t think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we can give people great health care,” he continued. “Because we’re close. We’re very close.’’
The president challenged the GOP senators, saying that anyone who votes against beginning debate on the legislation is saying “you are fine with ObamaCare.”
Trump’s opening remarks at the luncheon were open to the press and quickly broadcast on cable television.
The president took a scolding tone at times during his remarks, urging GOP lawmakers to keep their campaign promises.
But the public tongue-lashing from Trump might not be well received by Republican senators, many of whom believe he has failed to master the details of the healthcare proposal and did little to sell it.
Trump took aim at those members during his remarks, saying that they now had someone at the White House who would sign a repeal bill.
He acknowledged this was different from 2015, when Republican lawmakers knew former President Barack Obama would veto legislation rolling back his signature healthcare law.
“Any senator who votes against debate says you are fine with ObamaCare,” Trump said, criticizing GOP lawmakers who have said they would do just that.
“I’ve been here six months,” he continued. “I’m ready to act, pen in hand, believe me. I’m sitting in that office. I have pen in hand. You never had that before.”
Trump is ready to fulfill his promise to the people and won’t tolerate ANOTHER failure!
