Trump: Let Obamacare Fail...I'm Not Going To Own It.

Source: NBC NEWS

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would let Obamacare "fail" in the aftermath of his party's botched efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

"I think we're probably in that position where we'll let Obamacare fail," Trump said at the White House. "We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you, the Republicans are not going to own it."

This is how Trump has always dealt with his business failures. Declare bankruptcy. Walk away from responsibility and accountability. Leave people in the lurch.

1. Great point, Marcuse.

Trump knows nothing, at all, about business, what he knows is how to lie, steal and cheat.

The ONLY reason he doesnt always go bankrupt is russian money.

They want it to fail because they know they can harm or kill many Obama voters.



I just realized, what I wrote above would be an argument that Trump knows a lot about business if you follow the George Carlin school of business, that is.

4. You can't "not own it" when you deliberately sabotage it.

Way to go repugs. You all will be looked at as the dumbest group of people ever to walk this earth. Without a doubt you all "own" tRump.

5. Somehow, some way, we need to convince enough of them to fix the ACA.

It could be done and they know it. Maybe Mitch will decide it's in the best interest of the American public and they will start to have hearings.

32. I know but, some markets only have one insurer.

The "horrors" of "collapsing Obama care" however, is largely just GOP nonsense.

Good article BTW.

12. Sounds like he's trying to make whine with sour grapes.

He saw the number of times congress voted to repeal ACA, and thought they'd continue it. He didn't count on the cowardice of the Republicans. Perfectly willing to waste time voting to repeal when there was no chance Obama would sign it. Now that Trump is in office, the Senate isn't going to risk the wrath of the voters by getting rid of ACA.

On the campaign trail, Donald Trump promised great Health care that would cover everyone. Well guess what, Trump and McConnell could not deliver.

In blaming the Democrats who were not allowed in the House or Senate to work on this disaster of a health care bill, THEY own this and bigly.
