Trump doesn’t seem to really care about any of this. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Ben Mankiewicz, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join

“U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republican senators in a tweet on Friday to repeal Obamacare immediately if they cannot agree on a new plan to replace it, muddying the waters as congressional leaders struggle for consensus on healthcare legislation.

Senate Republican leaders had set Friday as the target for rewriting legislation for a simultaneous repeal and replacement of extensive parts of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, the law dubbed Obamacare that expanded health insurance coverage to 20 million people.

The deadline seemed unlikely to be met given that most senators had left Washington ahead of next week’s recess, without agreement on a clear direction for the healthcare bill, and Trump’s tweet did not appear to gain political traction.”*

  1. This is the worst idea that they ever come up with. This will screw up million of people, can they use their brain for once. The only way Trump and his crew can win if use the citizen of America as pawns.

  2. 15 MILLION OF THE 22 MILLION GET THE CHOICE TO DROP OBAMACARE WITHOUT A PENALTY!
    PEOPLE WILL LEAVE OBAMACARE WILLINGLY!
    THE REST OF THE PEOPLE AMOUNT TO LESS THAN 3% OF THE NATION.

  3. this is amazing, he is so desperate to undo everything obama did he's actually saying leave millions uninsured and come up with a solution later, although trumpcare is actually worse than just repealing the ACA. people seriously voted for a 90s Saturday morning cartoon villain.

  4. There isn't anyone left supporting Trump except for the seriously challenged. We're talking bottom-of-the-barrel morons who drive around in pickups drinking schlitz and listening to Ted Nugent casettes….

  5. Why do you think Mconnell said what he said you morons.
    You had no idea Mconnell wasn't bashing Trump for changing Obamacare.
    He was bashing him for not scrapping it.
    Idiots.

  6. i called it months ago the shit show that is republicans in charge of everything. i said 1 of 2 things will happen they will come up with nothing to replace the ACA or what they do come up will be hot garbage, with trumps "suggestion" he's actually managed to make it both trumpcare is hot garbage and he actually wants to get rid of it with nothing there to replace it

  7. Yeah what the hell…let's just repeal it and if we can replace it later on then cool and if we can't then so what…I'm going to be impeached before my term is up anyway. Trump is an ass…he's also a narcissistic psychotic sociopathic predatory sexual deviant but mostly he's an ass.

  8. If it does pass Trump and his Republican henchman will have have caused more Americans to die than any terrorist organization could dream. What a betrayal of Americas heartland to bestow a tax break to the 1%.

  9. If you can no longer afford healthcare and have a terminal condition… remember you could still afford a gun.

    And don't forget to protest the (GOP) politicians that made it impossible to afford healthcare…

    Two completely separate ideas.

  10. Even with all the bias in mainstream media and the Corporate Democrats selling out regular people, we still have Democracy. If people would all stand together and stop voting against their own interests, Bernie Sanders would have won the primaries despite the cheating on Hillary Clinton's end. The Electoral College can't stop us if we all stand together. Nearly 30% of the electorate like to shoot themselves in the feet. Unless those people wake up, our Democracy is getting more and more unhealthy by the day.
