Trump Rips Democrats for Obstructing on Health Care Reform: 'We Have Had No Help'

June 7, 2017

President Donald Trump ripped Democrats on Wednesday for obstructing on health care reform legislation, saying even the "greatest plan in the history of the world" wouldn't get their votes.

Trump spoke about Obamacare's failures at Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport with families who have had problems with his predecessor's health care law.

Trump eventually turned his aim to Democrats in Congress who want to keep and amend Obamacare instead of joining Republicans in repealing and replacing it.

"We spent a lot of time yesterday with Mitch McConnell and a lot of the great senators that happen to be Republicans, because we're having no help, it's only obstruction from the Democrats," Trump said. "The Democrats are destroying health care in this country."

"We have had no help. We will get no votes. No matter what we do, if we gave you the greatest plan in the history of the world, you would have no Democratic vote," Trump said. "It's all going to be Republicans or bust."

The House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act in May without any Democratic votes, but the Senate is working on its own health care legislation. McConnell (R., Ky.) told Trump on Tuesday that a vote in the Senate on health care was possible by July 4.
