Four Republicans Won’t Support Trump’s Health Care Bill

President Donald Trump doesn’t enjoy full support from his Republican friends. It’s sad how he can no longer rely on the support of four GOP senators. We knew that Democrats disapprove everything that comes from President Trump, but we never expected that Republicans would stab him in the back.

Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ron Johnson (R-WI), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rand Paul (R-KY) made a public statement, and said that they won’t support the new health care bill. Does this mean they support Obama’s health care system?

These senators made the statement right after the Better Care Reconciliation Act was released this year.

“Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor. There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current healthcare system but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their healthcare costs,” senators explained.

Well, we don’t really know the reasons for their statement, but we can freely say that President Donald Trump didn’t deserve such treatment. He earned people’s trust in November, and Americans elected him. Why on Earth are Republicans going against his plans to make America great again?

Ted Cruz talked with Mark Davis, and said that Mitch McConnell and leadership have the word on the final draft, adding that he has no clue of its content. He also said that some members of the working group are frustrated because of this.

Cruz said that people don’t like Obamacare due to its premium-expanding plan. He said that conservatives will vote no for every bill that expands Obamacare. “It’s not going to pass if it doesn’t directly tackle the problems of Obamacare,” said Cruz.

Cruz can talk about Obamacare problems as much as he wants, but will he ever open the problem about Republicans who boycott President Trump?

What do you think about this? Do you think other Republicans will follow the example of Cruz and other senators?
