On Friday, President Trump called for the GOP Congress to repeal ObamaCare outright without offering an immediate replacement, but Mitch McConnell is defying those orders.
Trump wants the #1 thing that most Americans want – OBAMACARE REPEALED. Sadly, our GOP congress wants to keep it as “the law of the land” until we have a replacement.
Here’s what he posted on Twitter yesterday:
If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!

Sadly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has other plans. Apparently, he feels obligated to have a Government replacement for ObamaCare instead of letting the FREE MARKET take charge.
Here’s more from Fox News:
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is rejecting President Trump’s suggestion on how the Senate could promptly pass its ObamaCare overhaul measure — by immediately repealing the 2010 heath care law and replacing it later.
The Kentucky Republican said Friday night that the bill, which includes significant and complex changes to ObamaCare, remains challenging but “we are going to stick with that path.”
He also riffed on Trump’s winning campaign slogan, saying, “It’s not easy making America great again, is it?”
McConnell, the leader of GOP-controlled Senate, responded to Trump tweeting earlier in the day: “If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!”
Trump is trying to revive an approach that GOP leaders and the president himself considered but dismissed months ago as impractical and politically unwise.”
Who else thinks that McConnell needs to be replaced immediately? If he is not on board with the Presidents agenda, how in the hell can we trust him?
