President Donald Trump has spoken to the media about the failure of the Republican healthcare bill, blaming it on the Democrats. He said that Obamacare would inevitably collapse, leading to eventual reform.
The president spoke to reporters from the Oval Office shortly after House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the bill aimed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
“We couldn’t quite get there. We were just a very small number of votes short. A lot people don’t realize how good our bill was because they just unveiled phase one…We were anywhere from 10-15 votes short.”
“I think what will happen is Obamacare, unfortunately, will explode. I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer because they own Obamacare.”
“This not anything but Democratic healthcare,” he said. “They have Obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist. This is not our bill. This is their bill. When they become civilized and try to work out a health care bill for the great people of our country, we are open to it. Whenever they’re ready, we’re ready.”
“Bad things are going to happen to Obamacare. It’s not sustainable. We will end up with a truly great healthcare bill in the future after this mess known as Obamacare explodes.”
