Plug Pulled on Trump’s Obamacare Repeal Plan

The failure of the GOP’s Obamacare replacement plan comes as a particularly devastating blow to the President, amid a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll which has found Trump’s approval rating to be the lowest it has ever been for a president six month into their term.

The bill, which was meant to repeal Obama’s Affordable Healthcare Act and set the ground for a new plan, did not have enough votes to pass in the senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell failed to get the backing of moderate republicans, who were on the fence about the proposed bill from its start. The bill was nearly two votes short of reaching a majority. 

Sources close to the White House say the President is disappointed. On Tuesday afternoon, Trump took to twitter to vent his frustrations.

Of the setback, Trump said at the White House, “I think we’re probably in that position where we’ll let Obamacare fail. We’re not going to own it. I’m not going to own it. I can tell you, the Republicans are not going to own it.”

Trump hopes that when and if Obamacare collapses, Democrats will have no choice but to come together with Republicans to draft up a new plan.
