ObamaCare keeps giving President Trump a terrible headache. Obama’s legacy seems to be immortal, and even Republicans are unable to take it down. We never thought that some of them would go against the President, and block the repealing procedure. President Donald Trump promised to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and build a more efficient healthcare system. But, things didn’t go that smooth.
Republican members of the US Senate had trouble repealing ObamaCare. Senator Mitch McConnell stated that the President expects too much about the whole procedure.
“Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. Part of the reason I think people think we’re under-performing is because of too many artificial deadlines unrelated to the reality of the legislature which may have not been understood,” McConnell said.
Is it strange that we see the President asking for a repeal procedure? It turns out that McConnell expected a new prolonging. McConnell can’t understand the severity of the problem. He even disagrees with the President, which is pretty concerning. It’s been seven years now, and the Senate is stuck in the middle of nowhere.
“Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?” tweeted President Donald Trump. The President urged McConnell to “get back to work,” demanding that he puts new promising bills on his desk. Well, McConnell probably needs an inspiration, because he doesn’t seem to be determined and ready to repeal ObamaCare.

Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing. You can do it!

But, 11 GOP Senators stood with Mitch McConnell on this one. Cornyn, Corker, Tillis, Isakson, Collins, Hatch, Gardner, Heller, Flake, Young, and Capito supported McConnell.
“Majority Leader McConnell understands the Senate is deliberative & diverse body. He enjoys broad support in our Caucus,” tweeted Collins.

This is sad. Senators are supposed to support the President, and ObamaCare should soon become history. Seven years is just too long.
What do you think about this? Do you think President Trump will manage to repeal ObamaCare?
