Trump says no healthcare vote until after 2020 election

In a series of tweets on Monday night, Trump said Republicans are developing "a really great HealthCare Plan with far lower premiums (cost) & deductibles than Obamacare".

President Donald Trump signaled Monday night that he will not press for a vote on a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act until after next year's elections, apparently heeding warnings from fellow Republicans about the perils of such a fight during campaign season.

McConnell said he was fine with lawmakers working on narrower health care issues - such as prescription drug prices- but, he stressed that "we will not be doing comprehensive [health care] in the Senate". Sure, a good president will partner with Congress to advance his legislative agenda, but Trump's tweets make clear he thinks he's in charge of Congress, and that's a huge problem.

"This will be a great campaign issue".

The Trump campaign has targeted GOP governors critical of the president, and RNC officials say potential challengers would face a steep climb if they launched a primary campaign.

Yost told an Axios conversation on the future of the Affordable Care Act that he agrees the part of the law that mandates coverage is unconstitutional, but said that insurance guarantees for roughly 1.9 million non-elderly Ohioans with pre-existing medical conditions could end if the law is eliminated.

If that happened and the law was not replaced " ...it would have undeniable dramatic effects in NY", said Bill Hammond, a health policy expert with the Empire Center, an Albany think tank.

For six years Republicans promised their supporters that action on healthcare - full Obamacare repeal and a cheaper, better replacement - was just a winning election away.

Republicans were cool after Trump surprised them last week with an unexpected pivot to the issue and his claims the GOP will be the party of health care.

The Fox News contributor pointed out that health care is the number two issue for voters, with jobs and the economy being first. Since the share of Californians voting by mail has been going up regularly in recent elections, we're talking about a lot of votes. "What a disgrace. The American people will not stand for the president playing cynical games with health care", he continued.

"He'd love to be able to address it now, but we know that Democrats are controlled by the far, radical left wing of their party and they are a total contrast to what we need and what the president wants to see happen when it comes to health care", Sanders said. Asked if he had a "moral responsibility" to offer a replacement if the ACA is struck down in court, Hawley said it will remain in place as the case is adjudicated and that "I expect that will take quite some time". John McCain's "no" vote that killed the repeal-and-replace effort. Of course, the agenda is contingent upon Trump winning re-election next year.

"Don't let President Trump fool you, America".

"The Justice Department has not only refused to defend hundreds of thousands of West Virginians with pre-existing conditions but gone even further to argue against the constitutionality of the entire Affordable Care Act".

Though parts of the Affordable Care Act are unpopular with voters, some of its key reforms such as protections for patients with pre-existing conditions have been nearly unanimously embraced.
