"Let Obamacare fail; it'll be a lot easier," Trump told reporters on Tuesday. "And I think we're probably in that position where we'll just let Obamacare fail. 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. We'll let Obamacare fail, and then the Democrats are going to come to us and they're going to say, 'How do we fix it? How do we fix it?' Or, 'How do we come up with a new plan?'"
Bipartisan Group of Governors Issue Statement Calling for Inclusive Health Care Reform Process
BATON ROUGE — Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards (D-La.), along with Governors John R. Kasich (R-Ohio), Steve Bullock (D-Mont.), Brian Sandoval (R-Nev.), Phil Scott (R-Vt.), John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.), Charles Baker (R-Mass.), Tom Wolf (D-Pa.), Larry Hogan (R-Md.), Bill Walker (I-Alaska) and Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) issued a joint statement recommending a bipartisan approach to improving the nation’s health care system that engages governors across the United States in the process:
"Congress should work to make health insurance more affordable by controlling costs and stabilizing the market, and we are pleased to see a growing number of senators stand up for this approach. The Senate should immediately reject efforts to 'repeal' the current system and replace sometime later. This could leave millions of Americans without coverage. The best next step is for both parties to come together and do what we can all agree on: fix our unstable insurance markets. Going forward, it is critically important that governors are brought to the table to provide input, and we stand ready to work with lawmakers in an open, bipartisan way to provide better insurance for all Americans."
