TRUMP APPEALS TO DEMS ON HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL
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.”
