McConnell Stalls Republican Obamacare Fix, Bewilders Trump

12 August 2017

According to a poll conducted by two academic authors and The Washington Post, 52 percent of Republicans said they would back a postponement of the next election if Trump called for it.

"If there's blame to go around, people from the states, the senators that promised to vote for it then didn't, that's who I think there needs to be a discussion with", Paul said after a Lexington event to discuss his proposal to create health care associations.

The vote against the Obama health care law looms large for 21 GOP lawmakers, including Iowa congressmen David Young and Rod Blum, who represent competitive congressional districts where Democrat Hillary Clinton won or came close in last year's presidential election. Insurers say such a move would force them to leave the health law marketplaces or raise premiums.

Moving forward, a majority of the public (60 percent) says President Trump and Republicans in Congress are responsible for any problems with the ACA.

Trump is, very likely, aware of three things when it comes to the Republican Party. No matter how much Trump savages him personally, there's no way McConnell will walk away from the opportunities presented by having a Republican in the White House and GOP in control of the Senate. All of the measures failed to win the 50 votes needed in July.

That's what President Trump and his family are going through right now. For a White House that often seems more concerned with cementing support from Trump's loyalists than embracing the political center, that might help explain the president's persistence on the issue. And equal shares of respondents (21%) said they want the GOP to continue working on its own replacement bill or to abandon their efforts altogether.

If the media and the establishment try to bring Trump down they are in for a rude awakening.

"All of this bodes well for Democrats", Skelley said.

Asked later Thursday about McConnell, Trump suggested that if the Kentucky Republican can't get health care reform, tax reform and infrastructure spending done, he should consider stepping aside.
