Following Senate Republicans’ failure to deliver on their promise, the president called out senators who didn’t support repeal and replacement.
President Trump, in remarks to a lunch gathering of senators on Wednesday, challenged the GOP members to deliver on their promise to the American people to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Trump said he is anxiously waiting for the bill. “I’m sitting in that [Oval] office, pen in hand.”
“For seven years you had an easy route: ‘We’ll repeal. We’ll replace. And he’s never going to sign it,’ but I’m signing it,” he added. “Inaction is not an option.”
The president said that Congress should not leave Washington, D.C. until they repeal and replace the 2010 health care law. He has also said, in recent days, that if the GOP can’t replace Obamacare they should opt for outright repeal.
Trump then called out Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) for opposing the effort. “[Heller] wants to remain a senator, doesn’t he?” he asked.
