Trump Says Vote On Healthcare Plan Can Wait Until After 2020 Election

He didn't want to cede the issue again in the 2020 campaign, according to a person familiar with the conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly.

The Hill reports that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told Trump on Monday that the senate would not vote on the president's desired Obamacare replacement before the 2020 election.

President Donald Trump has taken control of the Republican Party in every state he needs to win next year, after enduring 2016 power struggles in important battlegrounds like OH and New Hampshire. "It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America".

It soon became clear, however, that other Republicans had little appetite to take on an issue that benefited Democrats during last year's Midterm elections. Republicans wanted no part of a do-over after their failure to replace the law in 2017. Representative Kevin Brady said that if the Supreme Court did strike down Obamacare, Republicans would act to protect some provisions, including coverage guarantees for people with pre-existing medical conditions. Democrats would be happy with a plan that did all the "spectacular" things Trump regularly claims - protecting preexisting conditions, insuring everybody, doing it all for much less than we pay now. A Quinnipiac University poll last week found 55% of Americans supporting the improvement and not the replacement of the nation's health care system.

The president and the White House did not provide additional details.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, whose panel would be central to any such debate, also said last week that there was no plan to move forward.

Trump's top campaign aides Bill Stepien and Justin Clark have methodically boosted the president's allies even in deep-blue states like MA, and have tried to broker peace between competing pro-Trump factions in other states.

He continued: "The Republicans are developing a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than ObamaCare".

On Wednesday morning, Trump seemed to change his mind yet again and said that a Republican health care package would be "on full display during the Election".

Experts say the fate of the Affordable Care Act may ultimately be determined by the U.S. Supreme Court. Texas Rep. Colin Allred, one of those freshman Democrats who defeated a longtime GOP incumbent last fall, introduced this week's nonbinding resolution.

Under previous Senate orders, 30 hours of debate were required for these nominees after they had cleared a procedural vote.

"At a time when leader McConnell brags about confirming more judges than anyone has done in a very long time, he feels the need to invoke the terribly destructive and disproportionate procedure", Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor.

McConnell, no stranger to obstructionist tactics himself, said the situation had gotten out of hand, with the Senate taking 128 votes to end debate on Trump's nominees during his first two years in office, far more than under other presidents.

"Translation: they have no health care plan". "What a ruse. What a shame".

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. Every Democrat opposed the maneuver in a pair of 51-48 votes, and they were joined by two Republicans: Sens.
