Trumpcare Is So Bad Trump Can Only Sell It To Congress With Threats

Mar 21, 2017

“Analysis after analysis has shown that Trumpcare would tear health coverage away from millions and leave working families, seniors, and rural Americans with skyrocketing out-of-pocket health care costs. That makes it especially revealing that Donald Trump didn’t even talk about the pain this bill would mean for everyday people, including his own voters, when he tried to sell reluctant members of Congress today – he just made political threats. Sounds like a real ‘winner,'” said American Bridge spokesperson Andrew Bates.

Washington Post: “Trump to GOP critics of health care bill: ‘I’m gonna come after you’”Politico: “Trump to Republicans: Vote for Obamacare repeal or lose your seat”

Associated Press: “President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned House Republicans they could lose their seats in next year’s midterm elections if they failed to back the GOP health care overhaul and fulfill a long-promised goal to undo Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.”

Axios: “Trump singled out House Republican on Obamacare replacement…When Meadows emerged from the meeting, he said he was still a “no” on the bill, adding that he didn’t anticipate any Freedom Caucus members would change their vote.”

John Bresnahan @BresPolitico: “Trump to House Rs on AHCA vote: ‘I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don’t get this done.'”

Phil Mattingly @Phil_Mattingly: “Whoa. Trump notes that Freedom Caucus folks could get primaried if they oppose. (Doesn’t say he’d support it, just puts it out there.)”
