President Donald Trump called out Senate Republicans Saturday afternoon, saying that unless they are “quitters,” the party will call for another procedural vote before moving on to a new Obamacare repeal and replace proposal.

The president tweeted Saturday that “Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!”

Trump also announced Saturday morning that federal funding for major health insurance providers and for members of Congress will end if lawmakers are unable to pass a bill repealing and replacing Obamacare

The president tweeted Saturday morning his frustration with Republicans in Congress that have campaigned for seven years on a platform of repealing and replacing Obamacare, but continue to fail to make good on their promise. Trump also threatened members of Congress, tweeting that “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”

The president’s frustration with congressional Republicans has to do with Friday’s health care reform defeat in the Senate, after months of Republican lawmakers pushing to repeal, or repeal and replace, Obamacare.
