Trump seeks support for controversial GOP health care bill

Trump seeks support for controversial GOP health care bill

Republican Senators are working through the weekend to evaluate and respond to a health care bill introduced on Thursday by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

"I would like to delay the thing", Sen.

An opinion poll last week found that for the first time former President Barack Obama's 2010 Affordable Care Act - known as Obamacare - is now viewed positively by more than half Americans (51%).

White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway, appearing on ABC's "This Week", dismissed the notion that the bill did not have enough support to pass, saying Trump "is prepared to have a conversation and discussion, and a negotiation with those senators and others" to ensure the bill passes.

At least two Republican senators on Sunday said that goal may prove too ambitious.

Trump said he thinks Republicans in the Senate are doing the best they can to push through the bill.

The Senate is now considering a new version of the bill, which has faced fierce criticism from politicians on both sides of the aisle.

One of the Republican senators who's opposing his party's health-care bill as written says the Senate shouldn't vote on the plan this week. "It's so easy, but we won't get one Democrat vote. if it was the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote and that's a bad thing. their theme is resist". "I want to see a bill with heart", he added.

President Trump expressed confidence that the bill to repeal the guts of the Affordable Care Act would pass after last-minute changes are made.

"Just as the president did with Justice Neil Gorsuch, whenever there are vacancies, whenever that happens, he will look for somebody who has fidelity to the Constitution, who doesn't make up the law as they go along, and somebody who has the judicial temperament and a record that's beyond reproach, as did Justice Gorsuch", Conway said. But, as tallied by the New York Times, five Republican Senators-most of them staunch fiscal conservatives-have already said they will not support the current version of the bill.

In a tweet last week after Georgia's special House election, Trump also criticized House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer.

Warren reiterated her opposition to the Senate bill Sunday, calling it a "monstrosity". "I don't think they're that far off".

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, of NY, said Democrats would be working hard to defeat the bill, having already made clear they would co-operate with Republicans if they agreed to drop a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and instead work to improve it.
