Trump calls House healthcare bill 'mean'

He also gets that too much generosity in the Senate revision of the healthcare bill will drive away the hard-liners in his caucus and he will not have the votes to get it passed. Hatch has held several meetings with Utahns about what they would want in the bill. Ryan's so-called American Health Care Act - which Trump is now treating like an ugly orphan - is looked upon favorably by a mere 1 in 5 voters, according to polls, while Obamacare now is popular with more than 60% of Americans. Disagreements between conservatives and moderates have slowed progress on the bill.

Trump said at the time that he brought the lawmakers over - on buses from Capitol Hill, no less - after the bill narrowly passed through the House because "we want to brag about the plan." .

"There was a robust discussion involving the Senate's current work to rescue the American people from the failures of Obamacare", said Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock.

Senator John Thune (R-SD) said that although the Senate would like to repeal all of Obamacare's taxes, they would still like to consider all of their options.

The sources told The Associated Press that the president did not say what aspects of the bill he was characterizing.

President Donald Trump supports the bill, with the White House saying it "stems the flow of payments to ineligible individuals under Obamacare". "Generous, kind, with heart. So I will just say that is disconcerting".

It's not clear how many Senate votes could be earned with additional money for opioid addiction treatment or if it would even be a part of the final legislation.

Doubts over the future of the bill in the Senate rose after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a report in May predicting that if the Republican reform is to go ahead, 23 million people in the USA will lose their medical coverage within a decade.


"In fact, it will probably have to be re-envisioned entirely", he said.

Trump had hailed the Republican-written House measure when it was passed on May 4 with an address in the White House Rose Garden.

Trump did not discuss the House GOP health care plan in any detail, but said the Senate is getting ready to do something.

The president's comments also seemed to undercut efforts by Senate conservatives to include restrictions in their chamber's bill, such as cutting the Medicaid health care program for the poor and limiting the services insurers must cover.

The House of Representatives narrowly approved its version of repeal last month but Senate Republicans have been unable to coalesce around their own version of a bill, with moderates and conservatives pushing in different directions in meetings behind closed doors.

Now, Senate Democrats are again forcefully speaking out against their GOP colleagues' quiet drafting of a health care bill. Lamar Alexander, Colorado Sen.

GOP senators said Wednesday they remained divided over pivotal questions about dismantling and replacing chunks of former President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

"The Republican majority is afraid of the American people learning what is in their healthcare bill", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor Tuesday.
