McConnell Leaves Healthcare To Trump
Mitch McConnell is letting President Trump execute his own plan for healthcare.
In a brief interview on Thursday McConnell says, “I look forward to seeing what the president is proposing and what he can work out with the speaker.
I am focusing on stopping the ‘Democrats Medicare for none’ scheme.” Politico reports the Senate majority leader spent countless weeks and months on the party’s health care quagmire in 2017, back when the GOP controlled both the House and Senate and still failed to repeal Obamacare.
Now in divided government, with the Senate majority up for grabs next year and McConnell himself running for reelection, another divisive debate over health care is the last thing McConnell needs.
But that’s exactly where Trump is taking Republicans after his administration endorsed a wholesale obliteration of the law in the courts earlier this week.
