How Trump has guaranteed healthcare will be a major election issue

Mitch McConnell health care Affordable Care Act

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told President Trump that the Senate will not be moving comprehensive health care legislation before the 2020 election despite the US President's request for the Republicans to do so. McConnell did, however, tell Trump that the senate would do what they could to pass bills that would lower the cost of health care.

"I made it clear to him that we were not going to be doing that in the Senate".

"He did say, as he later tweeted, that he accepted that and he would be developing a plan that he would take to the American people during the 2020 campaign", McConnell said.

He said a Republican plan would mean most Americans pay lower premiums and deductibles for their healthcare than they now pay under Obamacare, revisiting a promise he made during the 2016 campaign.

While Trump has renewed his attacks on Obamacare, new poll shows Americans have more trust in Democrats and Barack Obama when it comes to health care than they do in Republicans and President Trump.

Congressional Republicans were caught off guard by Trump's rapid shift to focus on healthcare last week, which was set off by his abrupt decision to direct the Justice Department to intervene in a federal court case seeking to eliminate the Affordable Care Act in its entirety on constitutional grounds. "It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare", Trump tweeted.

"This will be a great campaign issue", Trump continued. "I would suggest that's good for us (Democrats). At a time when Leader McConnell brags about confirming more judges than anyone has done in a very long time, he feels the need to invoke the terribly destructive and disproportionate procedure of the "nuclear option" in order to fast-track even more of President Trump's ultra-conservative nominees to the federal bench", Schumer said. "They're for repeal. They have no replace".

But other Democrats, McConnell said, indicated behind the scenes that they could support the rules change provided that it wouldn't take effect until the next administration. If this happens, millions will lose health insurance and people with pre-existing conditions could be denied coverage.

Tom Brady's 1st-ever tweet no laughing matter to Patriots fans

After Trump dropped the issue on Republicans last week, many hoped it would just go away. But, almost a decade later, the party hasn't come up with a viable plan of its own.

When confronted about that, their answer amounts to, "Well yes, but then after we do that, we'll restore all those things about the ACA that you like". H. Res 271 opposes actions taken by the Trump Administration to remove protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, cancel co-pay and deductible caps, and halt assistance programs for seniors struggling with sky-high drug prices.

"I think we should test out Republicans' willingness to support some of the most aggressive reforms proposed by the president", Murphy said at an AXIOS event in Washington on April 2.
