Trump Blasts Congress on Healthcare

President Donald Trump sent a tweet Monday morning challenging Congress to pass healthcare reform legislation before taking its traditional August break.

I cannot imagine that Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!

Congress recesses for the month of August and is set to return Sept. 5, but some lawmakers have called for canceling the break because of their workload.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to check vital signs on his GOP bill as senators trickle back to Washington from a July Fourth break that many spent listening to constituents vent about health care.

Thus far, there’s no sign he’s secured enough votes to pass a bill. He can only afford to lose two out of 52 Republican senators.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that at least 22 million more people would become uninsured under Republican legislation.

Meanwhile, two moderate Republicans have indicated that the initial GOP bill to repeal and replace the nation’s health law is probably “dead” and President Donald Trump’s proposal to just repeal it appears to be a “non-starter.” Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana says, “We don’t know what the plan is. Clearly, the draft plan is dead.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says it may now be time for Republicans to come up with a new proposal with support from Democrats. “I think my view is it’s probably going to be dead,” he said.

McCain added that this doesn’t mean Democrats will control the bill if they have a say in it. He adds, “It means they can have amendments considered. And even when they lose, then they’re part of the process.”

McCain is a Demonrat kiss ass….get rid of him, vote him out of office asap.
