Trump tells senators House health bill 'mean'

Trump labeling House health care bill ‘mean’ frustrates GOP

During a White House lunch, President Donald Trump urged Republican Senators to pass a "generous" replacement program for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), according to a Reuters report. Although many thought the bill was cruel, the president at the time considered the AHCA a "great plan."

"He talked about making sure we have a bill that protects people with pre-existing conditions and helps people". Johnson nearly certainly must be one of the 50 votes required to pass a GOP health care bill in the Senate. In particular, Senate aides are reportedly concerned about securing the votes of Republican senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul due to concessions made so far in negotiations to moderate Republicans.

"I think we've got a little ways to go", he told reporters.

At the beginning of the lunch, which was open to the press for a few minutes, Trump said that the Senate is coming up with "a phenomenal" bill.

Under the House plan, the federal government allows states to waive three Obamacare regulations: community rating, medical underwriting, and the 10 essential benefits.

The meeting, organized to give the President a chance to check in on the process, brought together an eclectic group of Republican lawmakers as the Senate grapples in private with how to reform America's health care system.

House Republicans "have done (their) job", Trump said in OH, and "now it is the Senate's turn to act, and again, I hope they are going to act in a very positive manner". Trump has told associates that news coverage of the House health care bill was "terrible", in the words of one associate who has spoken with him. "So I will just say that is disconcerting".

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.

The Senate is expected to rewrite much of the bill, increasing tax credits for low-income Americans. But in a May 28 tweet that raised questions about his intent, he said: "I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere".

Republican conservatives and moderates are divided as to what should be included in the bill.

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, the top Democrat on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said at a Tuesday hearing that Republicans were "jamming their version of Trumpcare through the Senate". Susan Collins of ME, but could end up alienating conservatives, such as Sen. But many members, even Republicans, have no idea what the text of the bill contains.

"Our goal is to move forward quickly", he said.

"They have not given us anything", one Senate Republican aide told CNN.

Trump will also meet with "Obamacare victims" on Tuesday when he travels to Wisconsin. "If it's Obamacare light that will be hard for me", said Sen. Trump met earlier this month with families adversely impacted by growing Obamacare premiums in Ohio.

It has now culminated in the Senate GOP leadership's top-secret process to try to write a health bill that could change the formula for almost one-fifth of the nation's economy, with a vote they want to cast by July 4.
