Trump turns to health care with an eye on 2020

Jay Mallin  ZUMA Press  Newscom

The difference between now and the other administration is that we're administering Obamacare very well. Trump has great faith in his ability to fool people, but by now the public has probably figured out that the only Republican plan for health care is to not have a plan.

"As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster!"

NY attorney and vocal Donald Trump critic George Conway has taken aim at the president once again in a scathing Washington Post op-ed analyzing the outcome of the special counsel investigation. "We're coming up with plans". But the administration faced a deadline to stake out the extent of its request to undo the law after a Texas federal judge ruled that the entire Affordable Care Act had been invalidated. On Monday, the Justice Department announced that it would back a full invalidation of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare - a law that's become pretty popular over the course of the past couple of years.

The president continues to pick a fight on Twitter and at political rallies with the late Sen. "So let me get this straight", he said: "After finding out that he did not collude with the Russians, people liked him less?"

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan, Scarborough added, "never put together an effective plan to replace Obamacare".

Republicans who attended the meeting with the president on Tuesday said that Trump was intent on a renewed attempt to undo his predecessor's signature legislative achievement.

Smollett Appears At Hearing To Discuss Cameras In Courtroom
After the hearing, Glandian told reporters that evidence has been presented against Smollett that is "demonstrably false". Smollett is slated to appear before a judge on Tuesday and will likely have to show up in court as the trial plays out.

Bradley Moss, an attorney in Washington, D.C., who specializes in national security and FOIA litigation, says executive privilege will most likely come into play in the sections of the Mueller report on potential obstruction of justice by Trump. He has repeatedly called the law unconstitutional and said that if the courts kill it, the Democrats will be forced to negotiate with Republicans for new healthcare reforms more to the liking of conservatives.

Murphy announced that the state would run its own exchange to sell health policies rather rely on the federal government, allowing the state to publicize insurance options and get people to sign up. The "Medicare-for-all" approach first championed by Senator Bernie Sanders is now also embraced by several other contenders for the Democratic nomination.

Democrats and Republicans are both determined to dig into the issue but for different reasons. So its not a question of that - this is not about that - this is about us doing our work, ' she said, CNN reported.

"You can't move forward on a four-page memo", said Rep. Karen Bass of California. And he doubted there would be a push for major healthcare legislation in a presidential election year.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer signaled his party is happy to take on the issue, especially following the end of the special counsel investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign.

Later this week, House Democrats will introduce new healthcare reform package created to expand on the existing Obamacare reforms.
