I just did a piece on how Donald Trump keeps talking about the Senate Cassidy/Graham Healthcare Repeal bill….
Let’s face it?
That Trump talk is is just deal making….
It turns out that Trump’s people are ALSO talking to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Schumer about the Alexander/Murray Bill which McConnell and Schumer KNOW know has the votes to pass in the Senate….
The bill would keep the Affordable Healthcare Bill known as Obamacare intact ….(There is NO chance of a outright Repeal)
McConnel is asking for cover from the White House for his people since the Conservatives in the House are gonna NOT be happy…..( Trump keeps talking about adding things to the finished product to keep his parties conservatives from calling him and complaining …McConnell wants him to ‘man up’ and decide what he’s do)
Donald Trump just wants a win on ANYTHING….
He REALLY doesn’t care about the fine print…..
He just wants to read the media and go golfing….
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he is ready to move a bipartisan health-care bill but needs President Trump first to clarify what he will sign.
“What I’m waiting is to hear from President Trump what kind of health-care bill he might sign,” McConnell said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think he hasn’t made a final decision. When he does, and I know that we’re not just debating it, but actually passing something to be signed, I would be happy to bring it up.”
Last week, Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) announced an agreement to restore federal payments that help offset out-of-pocket health insurance costs for low-income Americans. The deal would give states more flexibility in how they regulate health coverage, a conservative goal.
But the administration signaled to Senate Republican negotiators Friday that it also wants to give individuals and employers retroactive relief from the Affordable Care Act’s insurance mandate, according to individuals briefed on the matter, a request that is sure to anger Democrats….Share on Facebook
