Trump Warns Congress Not To Leave DC Without Repealing Obamacare

President Donald Trump warned Congress early Monday morning to make sure they finalize a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare before the lawmakers leave for the August recess.

Trump tweeted that he could not imagine a scenario in which “Congress would dare to leave Washington without a beautiful new HealthCare bill fully approved and ready to go!”

Senate lawmakers return to Washington Monday after a week-long recess, with the goal of coming to a consensus on how to repeal Obamacare, but the time at home appears to have made the path forward anything but easier on Republicans.

Instead of returning to their Washington offices with a clearer sense of how to move forward, lawmakers find themselves dealing with at least one more Republican defection and a reignited, fierce debate between moderates and conservatives.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delayed the vote on the Senate health care bill Tuesday, announcing he would push it back until after the July 4 recess. After dealing with outside pressure from the health care industry’s lobbying arm, disagreements between moderate and conservative Republicans, and unanimous opposition from Senate Democrats, McConnell said Tuesday that he did not see a path to passing the bill before lawmakers returned home.

“We will not be on the bill this week, but we’re still working toward getting at least 50 people in a comfortable place,” McConnell said.

    I hope the Republicans defy you Pres Trump and go on a nice long vacation after sitting on their hands. Because then you’ll know definitively that they aren’t just slovenly and bad at their job, but that they are passive aggressively undermining you and the will of the people. That’s why, like w/ Dennis Hastert, you’ll be given license to take them down… first talking about the Awan brothers, about Seth Rich, about NGP Van, Podesta, about Epstein, and you’ll be able to start prosecuting the Dems which will inevitably lead to Republicans going down as well. And we’ll be cheering you on. And if they touch a hair on your family’s head, we have a kill list that we’ll play. It won’t be another JFK. It will be a red wedding, believe it. We have lists now of people connected to Clinton–definitive criminal gangsters–from NATO, in Atlantic Counsel, to State Dept to Applebees and Comets Pizza.

    We won’t let you guys live if you assassinate Trump. That’s a fact. You can either accept your light jail sentence or you can all die. Those are your choices. We consent for Pres. Trump to bring the hammer down on these criminals. Go for it dude.
