Trump told Pat Robertson today that he will be very angry if the Senate doesn’t repeal and replace Obamacare:
Of course we know when Trump says repeal, he means something very different than what you and I mean when we say it.
But that withstanding, Trump admits he’ll be very angry if the health care bill stalls out in the Senate. When asked what the hold up is, he simply says it’s difficult to get all 52 Republicans to agree on a bill.
No, that’s not the hold up at all. The hold up is that Republicans campaigned on repealing Obamacare and now most of them don’t want to do it. They are afraid of getting unelected. It’s really as simple as that.
I do wonder from this clip if Trump understands that once the Senate passes their version of the bill, it isn’t just going to end up on his desk. I only make this point because Trump suggested that he’s waiting for Senators to put a bill on his desk in the clip. They would only do that if they were voting yes on the exact bill the House sent over. But they scrapped that bill, so their bill, if passed, must go to a House/Senate conference afterward and then must be voted on again by the House and Senate before it will end up on his desk.
I know, he probably knows this already. Just makin’ sure!
