PRESIDENT MET WITH GOP members yesterday, Tuesday, June 27, 2017, encouraging them to get the Healthcare deal done. They need to get it together. Weak knee Republicans need to get over themselves and need to go forward repealing Obamacare. The Vote on Healthcare was postponed in the Senate till Friday. Nine Republican senators expressed their concerns but the White House is trying to get support.
This is not a Trump Healthcare Bill, It is a House Healthcare Bill and now a Senate Bill to be either passed or rejected.
Democrats are calling for single payor healthcare (socialism). Democrats say that the Republican Healthcare bill will bring costs up. Some Republicans have asked for more time and it is clear that Republican leadership are trying to get results quickly. Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight.
President Trump today, Wednesday, June 28, 2017, made some remarks, paraphrased: Yesterday we had a tremendous meeting, the meeting went really well. Obamacare is dead, if it does not get a subsidy it will die within 24 hours. This new healthcare will take care of people for the right reasons and at the right costs. Tremendous reductions from Obamacare. The Republican Senators (52) had an impressive meeting. What also came out was that this healthcare will be far better than Obamacare and much less expensive for the country. We are giving ourselves a little more time. We got rid of mandates, taxes, all the bad parts have repealed and replaced. This will be a tremendous plan, we will have a lot of happy people in this country when we get it done.
Remarks by President Trump at a Meeting with Republican Senators
4:08 P.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I thought I’d ask you folks to come say hello, and we’ll discuss healthcare. We have really no choice but to solve this situation. Obamacare is a total disaster.
It’s melting down as we speak. Rates are going up. In fact, it’s very interesting, Lisa, that you’re sitting next to me because, in Alaska, it was 206 percent — a 206 percent increase in Alaska. And I used to use Arizona as the standard; that was 116 percent. So it’s really meltdown, and we’re going to try to solve the problem.
So I invited all of you, and I think we have either 52 out of 52, or 50 out of 52. And John, either one is pretty good, I think, as a percentage.
So we’re going to talk and we’re going to see what we can do. We’re getting very close. But for the country, we have to have healthcare. And it can’t be Obamacare, which is melting down. The other side is saying all sorts of things before they even knew what the bill was. This will be great if we get it done. And if we don’t get it done, it’s just going to be something that we’re not going to like. And that’s okay, and I understand that very well.
But I think we have a chance to do something very, very important for the public — very, very important for the people of our country that we love.
So I’ll ask the press to leave. I greatly appreciate you folks being here. We love you very much. You’re very kind and very understanding. (Laughter.) But we will now ask you to leave. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.
Q Mr. President, what do you think of the Senate bill?
THE PRESIDENT: I think the Senate bill is going to be great. Thank you, everybody. Thank you. Such an understanding lot.

Vice President Pence and Kellyanne Conway speak with and about “Obamacare Victims”. Kellyanne said that people actually had a physical card and no ability to use it, the system considers you insured, and you are not. Ms. Conway said that the President sees this as a “Moral Imperative” to repeal and replace Obamacare.
On the other hand, the “OBSTRUCTIONISTS”, the Democrats are using lies, fear-mongering, and divisive rhetoric to push their agenda instead of debating the issues. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said the GOP bill’s spending cuts amount to “blood money.” The Democrats are saying “everyone should be very scared.” This is the Democratic Party, Celebrities they basically called for the assassination of the President. Hillary Clinton tweeted that the Republican Party will become “the death Party” if the bill passes. The Democrats are willing to destroy our nation with lies and rhetoric to get their way. Their ultimate Goal is a single-payor system which is Socialism and Communism.
