Trump Ready To Ditch Republicans On Health Care Reform

Mark Moore, New York Post

President Trump said if resistant Republicans don’t come around on repealing and replacing ObamaCare, he’ll work with Democrats to get a deal and then “the Freedom Caucus loses so big.”

“If we don’t get what we want, we will make a deal with the Democrats and we will have — in my opinion — not as good a form of healthcare, but we are going to have a very good form of healthcare and it will be a bipartisan form of healthcare,” Trump told the Financial Times in an interview published online Sunday.

He said he needs members of the House Freedom Caucus, which strongly opposed the deal saying it didn’t go far enough to outright repeal ObamaCare, because without support from Democrats, “you need close to 100 percent of the Republicans.”

“Well I will get the Democrats if I go the second way. The second way, which I hate to see, then the Freedom Caucus loses so big and I hate to see that,” said Trump.

The president in the interview also said he didn’t want to force a vote on the healthcare plan despite dwindling support from Republicans.
