President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked conservative lawmakers for the failure of the Republican bill to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law, as aides signaled a greater willingness to work with moderate Democrats on upcoming legislative battles from the budget and tax cuts to health care.
On Twitter, Trump complained: “Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!”
Trump initially focused his blame on Democrats for the failure and predicted a dire future for the current law.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer says Democrats are willing to work with Republicans on improving the health care system if they agree to stop trying to repeal former President Barack Obama’s law.
Schumer says Democrats and Republicans both have ideas on how to improve “Obamacare.”
Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” the New York senator says: “We never said it was perfect. We always said we’d work with them to improve it. We just said repeal was off the table.”
