Trump Slams Congress Over Double Standard: ‘Why Should Congress Not be Paying What Public Pays?’

President Donald Trump took Congress to task over its double standard on participation in the Affordable Care Act.

The president issued a blunt statement on Monday morning:

Trump has been very explicit about his frustration with the Republican-led Congress’s inability to get a repeal- and-replace legislative package on his desk to sign. Last week, the Republican effort to pass anything, even a “skinny repeal” of Obamacare failed.

“Our problem is for seven years we’ve been telling folks what we’re against and what we’re opposed to, and then we’ve had seven months to govern, and the best we can come up with is a skinny plan on 24 hours’ notice?” an exasperated Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) asked.

Trump made it clear that he is no fan of the ACA, even lashing out with the line, “Obamacare is death.”

What is less clear, however, is what Trump and Republicans intend to implement to replace Obamacare, which the party has blasted for seven years as a failure.

Now that the Republican Party has control over practically every branch of government, expectations are rising for a repeal-and-replace package to succeed before midterm elections.

That’s making Congressional Republicans a target, even as control of the Senate seems all bu assured after the 2018 elections. And the president is turning up the heat.
