FACT CHECK: Trump's health care timeline is off

FACT CHECK: Trump's health care timeline is off

Game over. All three attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have failed. "The president ought to stop playing politics with people's lives and health care, start leading and finally begin acting Presidential".

"Unfortunately", Ryan said, "the Senate was unable to reach a consensus".

The author of this piece, Jim Geraghty, concludes: "It's very hard to characterize McCain's decision as 'leading the fight to stop Obamacare.' That's more like leading the fight to keep Obamacare in place while you continue to look for a replacement that you like better".

"A disastrous bill to take away health care from millions of hard working people, and raise the costs for almost everyone has been defeated", said Congressman Ro Khanna, in a statement.

"We've had seven years to think about this. The Swamp. But we'll get it done, we're going to get it done". "I turned out to be right, let Obamacare implode".

Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press" told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Arizona's Morning News on Friday that "at the end of the day, McCain chose the institution over doing any favor for his party".

In a fusillade of Saturday morning tweets, Trump urged the Republican Senate to abolish the filibuster rule and stop "wasting time" on healthcare and other legislative matters.

McCain said it came down to the idea that it was a repeal without a foreseeable plan to replace.

The Republicans have 52 members in the 100-seat Senate, but that majority doesn't necessarily guarantee that a bill will be discussed, let alone passed. Many other republicans opposed the bill as well, mostly senators Susan Collins of ME and senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., has said he will hold hearings on reform measures. "Our country demands it", Schumer said. The first part of Trump's tweet appeared to be referring to the approximately $8 billion in cost-sharing reduction subsidies paid by the federal government to insurers to lower the price of health coverage for low-income individuals. They are laughing at R's. He has long opposed the Affordable Care Act and hasn't changed his mind. He said repeatedly through the campaign that it would be "so easy". "It is my hope that we will expeditiously move to a process that will generate an outcome that is better for the American people than what is in place today". "But I believe that's what people want to see".

"We've always said it was not ideal, but we should have been working all this time on how we improve it".
