That's false, according to study by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

After the Republican health care bill failed early this week, President Donald Trump tried to rally the flagging spirits of GOP senators with a rousing speech and lunch at the White House Wednesday.

Women across the U.S. are fed up with the president and the Republican Congress' backroom approach to healthcare.

McConnell acknowledged as much earlier in the week, stating that the Senate would vote to simply repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. "What they are basically saying is people will choose not to buy something that they don't want to buy if they don't have to buy it. The government is forcing people to buy something they don't want to do".

"It's not the president's fault".

"It is incumbent on us to get things done".

It would keep in place a requirement that insurers provide a comprehensive package of 10 essential health benefits and would not allow insurers to deny coverage based on person's health status or existence of a pre-existing medical condition.

As of 2026, however, the predicted 22 million increase in the ranks of the uninsured would be the same as under the bill's previous version, the CBO says. "You weren't there", Trump said, gesturing to Heller, after referencing the opposition to the Senate bill from Sens.

Additionally, Trump promised better protections for preexisting conditions than currently available under the Affordable Care Act.

The big issue? Oh, just that it could cause the health insurance markets to collapse precipitously, leaving millions of Americans uninsured and nobody but Republicans to absorb the blame for any human wreckage.

These women were the first to stand up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his group of Republican men who have crafted more than one horrendous healthcare bill. After the president's comments, some Twitter historians cracked open the volume of Trump Tweets That Haven't Aged Well, presenting his thoughts on leadership from 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible".

The Times reports that Senate Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer is urging his Republican colleagues to begin anew and, this time, undertake a bipartisan effort:.

"But we've come a long way, and I look forward to continuing our work together to finally bring relief".

The Republicans' seven-year mission to overturn the law is in disarray. Mustering enough lawmakers with the political will to correct the current law's many flaws is imperative.
