President Donald Trump signed Monday that Congress Republicans would wait until after 2020 the election to vote on a GOP replacement for Obamacare – Eliminate a probably struggle fight for a campaign problem for campaigns until after its re-election.
"Everyone agrees that ObamaCare is not working. Prizes and deductibles are too high – really bad HealthCare! Even Dems want to replace it, but with Medicare for everyone, which would cause 180 million Americans to lose their beloved private health insurance, "the president tweeted .

" Republicans … develop a really good HealthCare Plan with much lower premiums (cost) and deductibles than ObamaCare, "Trump continued . In other words, it becomes much cheaper and much more useful than ObamaCare. The vote will be taken shortly after the election when the Republicans hold the Senate and win … back to the house. "
Trump argued that the Republican proposal not yet shown" will be really good HealthCare that will work for America " writes online that" Republicans will always support previous existing conditions. "
The unexpected string of tweets added a new drama in a week that has seen Obamacare back as a political issue.
The President's promise comes days after his justice department approved a federal court to eliminate the Affordable Care Act in its entirety and relocate for annulment landmark health conditions despite objections in Trump's path from Health and Human Secretaries Alex Azar and Advocate General Barr. Judge had suggested that the Obamacare Charter, which has been agreed with the Supreme Court, was actually completely unconstitutional.
The President appeared on Capitol Hill the next day and explained that the Republican Party "will soon become known as the Party of Health Care."
Trump's call to once again put Obamacare's suspension on the table for Hill Republicans was seen as a potential disaster-i -production of GOP leaders, who knew that their established and candidates were harmed by it badly in November. And it was an invitation to the Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) To pound home the issue again, which she plans to do with a vote this week this week and condemns the management decision not to defend Obamacare in court.
Trump's efforts to eradicate Obamacare have also threatened some of the administration's health care measures, such as lowering prescription drug prices and combating opioid abuse and HIV.
In public and private Republican leaders made clear that they did not want anything to do with the president's recent operation. They asked Trump to back down, and also made their dissatisfaction with other administrative officials.
GOP legislators even took the view that if Trump wanted to present his own health proposal, they would be willing to look at it. But the Senate Republicans – facing a tough election campaign to retain their majority by 2020 – have refused to sign up for a new administrative unit before they see the details, leaving them room to refrain from any Trump proposal if it impedes their own political prospects .
"I look forward to seeing what the president is proposing and what he can train with the speaker," said Senate leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) In a short interview Thursday and added: "I focus on stopping" Democrats "Medicare for no "schedule."
McConnell himself is up for re-election, as are vulnerable GOP commanders, including Cory Gardner of Colorado and Susan Collins of Maine, who do not want the Justice Department to push down Obamacare.
The affordable spring law has been a tag in the republican side since it was adopted in 2010. After the GOP took back the chamber at the mid-term elections that year, GOP legislators repeatedly went gislation designed to repeal Obamacare.
When Trump was elected president on a pledge of different and better healthcare opportunities, Republicans seemed to be finally scratching the law, only to see a 2017 "lean revocation" effort failing in the Senate. That attempt collapsed when Arizona since John McCain – upset by the random way of law enforcement – stunned his colleagues by voting against it.
