CNN’s Jake Tapper called out the Senate minority leader for trying to blame President Trump for Obamacare’s struggles.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) unsuccessfully attempted to pass blame for Obamacare’s failures on President Trump. CNN’s Jake Tapper immediately held him accountable.
During an interview on Tuesday, Tapper pointed out to Schumer that insurance companies are pulling out of Obamacare exchanges, that premiums have gone up, and that several promises President Obama made turned out not to be true.
“Look, the reason the exchanges are having trouble is because of what the Trump administration and the Republicans are doing,” Schumer responded.
Schumer went on to tell Tapper, “if they were today say ‘we’re not repealing,’ – that’s caused a lot of consternation. Insurers, they like certainty. They don’t plan for a year, they plan for several.”
At this point, Tapper interrupted Schumer and pointed out that insurance companies had been pulling out of the Obamacare exchanges long before President Trump was elected.
