President Trump Calls House Health Care Bill 'Mean'

Why House and Senate Republicans hide Trumpcare bill President Trump Calls House Health Care Bill 'Mean'

Trump's labeling of the House bill as "mean" was a significant shift of tone that followed months of private and public negotiations, during which he called the bill "great" and urged GOP lawmakers to vote for it. Thune said Trump said senators have to "make sure" to protect them. McConnell, the majority leader of the Senate, just wants to get a bill to the floor as expeditiously as possible and get it passed quickly before more than a handful of people get a chance to look at it.

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who is protective of the Medicaid program that expanded under Obamacare in Ohio, said that the meeting did not bring senators closer to an agreement on a final bill.

The least terrible outcome for McConnell might be to accept an embarrassing defeat when his healthcare bill finally emerges from the darkness. "It's an important part of the health care program, but I think people in the country are deeply anxious about what is happening to the health care system". "You're free to ask anybody anything".

U.S. President Donald Trump has reportedly told Senate Republicans that the House health care bill he supported is "mean".

"That may be adding additional money into it", he said, without offering details on how much money might be needed or how it might be used.

"We're keeping our promise to the American people", Trump said Tuesday.

"He made pretty clear that he thinks the House bill leaves people - many of which probably make up his base - in a bad place", one congressional source with direct knowledge of the meeting said. "There's a group of guys in a backroom somewhere making these decisions", McCaskill said. Democrats point out the landmark health law was debated and voted upon by three House committees and two in the Senate, with opportunities to amend it. There were no hearings held about the legislation. But it may well still happen, though any bill passing the Senate would have to be reconciled with the different House version. "I learned more from you all in this conversation that there may have in fact have been something submitted to CBO, but if that's the case, I don't know what it is nor what it says". But at least have the decency, honor, a little bit of courage. We don't know yet how many would be affected under the Senate bill. It was a startling slap at legislation that was shepherded by Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and whose passage the president lobbied for and praised.


Republicans have been criticized recently for the lack of transparency in their legislative process.

Though only snippets have leaked, the GOP leader seems to be trying to appease more moderate GOP senators by delaying the House's 2020 cutoff for the provision that has provided more than 11 million Americans with health care coverage. Find us on Facebook too! Lamar Alexander, Colorado Sen.

"I have none planned, Senator Murray", Alexander replied.

In an attempt to avoid the heavy backlash and ensure disagreements in the conference don't spill out into plain - as was the case in the House GOP's fight over the American Health Care Act - the Republican Senate majority is crafting the bill largely behind closed doors.

Remember the GOP complaints about the way the Affordable Care Act came into being?

Mr. Trump pointed the finger back at Democrats, saying they were holding up his overhaul, even though Republicans are working under fast-track budget rules that allow them to cut the minority party out of the process. They agreed to language letting states drop requirements under Obama's health care law protecting people with pre-existing medical conditions from higher premiums and requiring insurers to cover specific services like maternity care.

"That's the part that's moving around on us", he said.
