Trump And Republicans Plan To Wait Until After 2020 To Push For Any Healthcare Changes

 In Flip Flops, Healthcare   Last Updated: April 14, 2019

After the president spent a week rallying Republicans to make health care a signature issue in their 2020 campaigns“, Trump announced on Twitter that Republicans will wait until after the 2020 election to vote on amendments and replacements to the Affordable Care Act.

 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell noted he had advised the President that the Senate would not be taking any action on healthcare and got Trump to agree to push off the fight.

Trump responded to McConnell’s comments on twitter by saying “I was never planning a vote prior to the 2020 Election on the wonderful HealthCare package that some very talented people are now developing for me & the Republican Party,” Trump tweeted, adding, “I never asked Mitch McConnell for a vote before the Election.”
