TRUMP AP­PEALS TO DEMS ON HEALTH CARE OVER­HAUL

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent Trump tweeted Satur­day that he has reached out to the Se­nate’s top Demo­crat to ex­plore a deal on a “great Health­Care Bill.”

Trump said Oba­macare was “badly bro­ken.” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., down­played Trump’s out­reach, say­ing the of­fer was aimed at dis­man­tling the Af­ford­able Care Act — a non-starter for Democrats.

“The pres­i­dent wanted to make an­other run at re­peal and re­place and I told the pres­i­dent that’s off the ta­ble,” Schumer said in a state­ment. “If he wants to work to­gether to im­prove the ex­ist­ing health care sys­tem, we Democrats are open to his sug­ges­tions.”
