Trump tells senators House health bill 'mean'


Senate Republican leaders drafting a measure to revamp US health-care policy appear to be following the same path as their House counterparts: writing a bill behind closed doors before springing it on other lawmakers and the public close to a vote.

His comments also seemed to undercut efforts by Senate conservatives to include restrictions in their chamber's bill, such as cutting the Medicaid health care program for the poor and limiting the services insurers must cover. Now, facing a deadline if they want to finish the legislation this summer, the Trump administration is looking to step up pressure on GOP senators.

Senate GOP leaders are now writing their healthcare bill, though Democrats and even some fellow Republicans have not seen any of the legislative text.

The anti-Trump word for today is "mean".

During the public part of the meeting, Trump told reporters that the ACHA is going to be "a phenomenal bill to the people of our country: generous, kind, with heart".

Sources present at the White House lunch meeting told Politico that Mr Trump said senators needed to "pass a bill that Republicans are able to more easily defend".

(Another 17 percent of Oklahomans say they have no opinion.) Across all the states that voted for President Trump past year, we estimate that support for the A.H.C.A.is rarely over 35 percent.

The White House declined to comment on private conversations between Trump and lawmakers. Now, while the media and American citizens are fixated on each daily warp of the soap operatic presidency of Donald Trump, McConnell has huddled behind locked doors with his Republican loyalists and favored lobbyists to assemble a healthcare scheme that will disassemble Obamacare.

"Americans won't forget that @HouseGOP passed a "mean" bill to rip healthcare from millions then celebrated @ the WH", Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) tweeted.

In an embarrassing retreat, Ryan had to abruptly cancel a March vote on the House measure after a revolt by Republican conservatives and moderates that would have ensured its defeat.

A Cruz confidant, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said it is a hard choice. That bill was widely criticized for allowing states to seek waivers from insurance protections for people with pre-existing health conditions. House Republicans ultimately passed the bill without a score from the CBO could conduct important analysis, including what the bill would cost and how many people would be covered under it.

Alexander moved to cut her off, saying: "You passed the ACA in the middle of a snowstorm with 60 votes and crammed it down the throats of Republicans". Republicans also call the bill another step in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

"He made pretty clear that he thinks the House bill leaves people - many of which probably make up his base - in a bad place", said an unnamed source. Just last weekend, Trump used his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., to hold a fundraising event for MacArthur that netted $800,000.

On Tuesday, 13 Senate Republicans from different factions of the party gathered at the White House to discuss the bill they were drafting to repeal and replace Obamacare. "I'm exhausted of Republicans promising they would repeal Obamacare and then negotiating to keep it".
