Trump Is Fed Up With Do-Nothing Congress
If there is one thing that makes President Trump different that other politicians is he actually gets work done.
In a surprising move, Presidents Trump announced that he is willing to consider a “temporary deal” with congress Democrats in the hopes of getting a healthcare bill passed.
Here’s more from Foxnews.com:
Looking to break the logjam in Washington on repealing and replacing ObamaCare, President Donald Trump said Saturday evening that he was willing to pursue “a temporary deal” to get a new health care plan in place.
In remarks on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving for a fundraising trip to North Carolina, the president referred to a popular GOP proposal that would have the federal government turn over money for health care directly to states in the form of block grants.
“If we could do a one-year deal or a two-year deal as a temporary measure, you’ll have block granting ultimately to the states, which is what the Republicans want,” he said. “That really is a repeal and replace.”
Meanwhile, in an interview taped earlier this week and aired Saturday night on Trinity Broadcasting Network, the president assured host Mike Huckabee that “We’ll have health care before the election.”
White House says health care repeal not dead, just delayed.
Earlier Saturday, Trump said he had spoken with the Senate’s Democratic leader on Friday to gauge whether the minority party was interested in helping pass “great” health legislation.
Democrats said they willing to hear his ideas, but were not willing to scrap the 2010 Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
Members of congress on both sides of the aisle consistently fail to pass meaningful legislation. That’s why it’s up to President Trump to step up and show them how it’s done.
Americans are tired of petty party politics and porkbelly bills where the citizenry always loses. This is a huge step in the right direction for our country.
