McConnell: If Trump OKs, health bill gets a vote

The plan to change parts of the Affordable Care Act and stabilize health insurance markets is backed by 12 Republican and 48 Democratic senators.

Amid strong criticism from politicians, the healthcare industry and doctors' groups, Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, and the Washington Democrat Patti Murray negotiated a deal to maintain the payments.

The chairman of Great America PAC which is basically a pro-Trump group, Strategist Ed Rollins said, "The president can say, 'Well, that's Bannon being Bannon, ' as opposed to, 'That's my chief strategist down the hall from me.' The president has a responsibility of running the government". "I would go, yes", Carter said, explaining that he, like many, is "afraid, too, of a situation" sparked by the war of words between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

President Donald Trump is warning House Republicans that 2018 would be a political failure for the GOP and a disappointment for the nation if they fail on tax overhaul.

Even if Trump does indicate his support, there's also the GOP House to contend with. "I want to take care of our people".

But despite the supposed ill feelings, when asked if Senator McConnell trusts the President, the Senator firmly responded, "I Do". "The people in those states are interested in what the candidates can do for them and for the country".

"The President and I have the same goals, I trust him".

On NBC's "Meet the Press", Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said the plan, with the support of 60 senators, should be brought up for a vote immediately. "Give me more of the things that we know we can do for folks back home to actually help them". Coulter said, "And it's better for Trump precisely because Bannon doesn't have to tiptoe around Trump's "first among equals" relatives, but can use Breitbart to forcefully remind Trump of the issues he ran on". Murray and Alexander and said come to a solution.

"They say it's budget neutral and they say it will raise wages". Rand Paul, who hails from McConnell's state of Kentucky and voted against the bill because he said it did not cut spending enough.

Brown argued Trump's stated goal of reducing taxes for the middle class was at odds with the plan McConnell was working on, and contrary to what most thought, he said that after meeting with the President that Trump might pursue a different path on taxes.

McConnell said Bannon and his supporters are "specialists at nominating people who lose [and]. specialists in defeating Republican candidates in November".
