As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Wants GOP to Run on Healthcare

President Trump has backed away from trying to pass healthcare legislation with the current Congress. But he still wants Republicans to campaign on the issue.

And he’s right. If the GOP is not offering an alternative, they’re playing defense. Trump likes to play offense. Republicans have the right ideas on healthcare, and they have to explain why Democratic policies are killing our healthcare system.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump said Tuesday Republicans “can’t run away from healthcare” as a political issue and must campaign on a comprehensive reform plan ahead of the 2020 election. “You’re going to win your elections because of healthcare,” Trump said during a dinner in Washington hosted by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

“We’re going to come up with a healthcare plan. We are not going to vote on it until after the election. We are all going to promise it’s going to be our first vote. Because we blew it the last time. Man, I was sold a bill of goods,” Trump said, referring to failed efforts to “repeal and replace” Obamacare.

  1. It is obvious the Dems will never work with Trump. Huckabee’s idea is to have every state pass their own program. Some plans won’t work.

  2. Not going to happen, nope. First, not many people believe that government should be involved in health care, period. Then, why would we believe any of them now after they had the golden opportunity to do what’s right and flubbed it.
    Government agents run Medicare and have made a downright mess of it. Obamacare is even worse, I’m told.
    We want a “wall”, a real effort to curtail, stop, whatever it takes to end the illegal invasion from the southern border. We know that people living in Utah, or Maine or Chicago might not feel the pain of seeing thousands of illegal aliens invading THEIR spaces, or flooding their schools with foreign speaking children, or just draining the resources of the taxpayer’s pockets, but we do here in the middle of this invasion.
    Build the dam WALL, do it now.

    • The Democrats are all for illegal immigration. Once the next Democrap libturd president is elected that is the end of the U.S. All the illegals will be given amnesty and the border opened.

      The libtards who love illegals don’t have to put up with the overcrowded schools, crime, drugs, and tax burdens these people create.

  3. The Republicans had their chance from 2010 through 2018. We heard all the excuses…we can’t repeal with just the House, we need the Senate…then, after winning the Senate, they said they needed the presidency. After Trump’s win, they sat on their hands and did nothing. Lamentably, Obamacare is here to stay.

    • Obamacare will go away when it fails as it was designed to do. Then the libs will push single payer. Obamacare is the back door to gov’t run health care.
