Trump says hostility has stymied bipartisanship

Trump says hostility has stymied bipartisanship

Trump's concise critique of the bill has been a not-so-closely guarded secret over the past few weeks, but during an interview Sunday aired on "Fox and Friends", he confirmed that he'd used the m-word.

Senate GOP Whip John Cornyn said leaders are working over weekend to bring five Republican senators who oppose the healthcare overhaul on board.

Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has pushed for a vote before the July 4th Independence Day holiday recess that begins at the end of this week.

He chided Democrats for their opposition to the Republican effort, saying, "Democrats slam GOP healthcare proposal as Obamacare premiums & deductibles increase by over 100%".

Trump bemoaned the lack of bipartisanship in Washington, having belittled prominent Democrats himself.

Johnson was one of four senators who said Thursday, hours after the plan became public, that they are "not ready to vote for this bill". But now that it's actually happening, I still find it hard to believe. They fight each other. But the level of hostility as an example of the health care bill you are reporting on and everyone is reporting on.

Trump has denigrated Democrats on numerous occasions, including a jab at Democratic Sen.

The health care industry and activists are putting outside pressure on Senate Republicans eager to complete a seven-year-long mission to repeal Obamacare.

Then he criticized two prominent Democratic senators. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he wrote.

"I think Congress has a responsibility of doing more work in a timely fashion than what we've been able to do so far", he said. "Healthcare's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it".

"And honestly", he said, "nobody can be totally happy, even without the votes".

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

Five senators have already announced their opposition to the Senate bill. That obviously means he isn't a firm no because he could easily change his mind as the bill is amended in the coming days - or as Johnson himself put it, he's "not a yes yet" - but for now he's a problem for those who really want this thing to go through. As of Sunday, Johnson is joined by fellow Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Dean Heller in standing against the Senate health care plan as it now exists. It would provide tax credits, based on income, age and geography, which would make more money available to lower-income recipients to help them buy insurance. "It's hard for me to see the bill passing this week", she added.

Cornyn made the comments Sunday at a private gathering hosted by the libertarian Koch brothers in Colorado. "We don't see them as cuts, it's slowing the rate of growth in the future and getting Medicaid back to where it was", she said.

The Senate would phase out Obamacare's expansion of the Medicaid program for the poor more gradually than the House bill, waiting until after the 2020 presidential election, but would enact deeper cuts starting in 2025.

As more analysis of the bill reached state officials, especially in places that expanded Medicaid access under the Affordable Care Act, misgivings grew. It would also slap annual spending caps on the overall Medicaid program, which since its inception in 1965 has provided states with unlimited money to cover eligible costs.

"I'm not voting for something that looks just like Obamacare and still doesn't fix the fundamental flaws", Paul said.

The Trump administration is reminding the Republicans that the Senate bill fulfills several 2016 campaign promises. "I think we're going to get there". "They are causing people to have a lower quality of actual health care". Republicans plan to use "budget reconciliation" to pass the bill with no Democrat support.

He said they had "at best, a 50-50 chance".
