The Affordable Care Act is still making some trouble to President Donald Trump. What Obama left appears to be immortal and even Republicans can’t take it down.
We would never think that few of them will even go against Donald Trump and stop the repealing procedure. The president vowed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and make a new more effective healthcare system. But it didn’t go as planned.
Republican Senate members had some issues repealing Obamacare. Sen. Mitch McConnell said that Donald Trump expected too much about the whole situation.
“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. Part of the reason I think people think we’re under-performing is because of too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality of the legislature which may have not been understood,” McConnell stated.
It turns out that McConnell expected a new delaying. He doesn’t seem to understand the severity of the issue. He even opposes Donald Trump, which is pretty disturbing. It’s been seven years now, and the Senate hasn’t found a solution for the issue.
“Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?” President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.
The President called McConnell to “get back to work,” requesting that he puts new promising regulations on his desk. Well, McConnell possibly needs some motivation, because he doesn’t appear to be strongminded and prepared to repeal ObamaCare.
But, 11 GOP Senators sided with Mitch McConnell on this case. Cornyn, Corker, Tillis, Isakson, Collins, Hatch, Gardner, Heller, Flake, Young, and Capito backed McConnell.
“Majority Leader McConnell understands the Senate is deliberative & diverse body. He enjoys broad support in our Caucus,” Collins wrote on Twitter.
