President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning made his thoughts clear on the latest Republican-backed Senate health care initiative, saying Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) is a “negative force” in the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Chuck Schumer is in a spirited mood. “This is going to be one of the biggest fights of the next three, four months,” the Senate minority leader said recently of the coming debate over tax cuts. “And Democrats are ready for it.”
Republican senators are planning to pursue a “skinny” repeal of Obamacare if Tuesday’s Senate votes to open debate on health care and pass the current GOP bill both fail.
Democrats have offered their support and praise for President Donald Trump after he ordered a military strike against a Syrian airbase Thursday night.
Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) stormed out of a meeting Tuesday with other Senate Republicans and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) on repealing the Affordable Care Act, saying afterward that he heard “undesirable” replacement plans at the gathering.
