Trump says he called Schumer, touts prospect of 'great' bipartisan health care bill

President Trump phoned Chuck Schumer to discuss a path forward on health care.

Schumer in a statement confirmed that he talked to the president about health care and said he told Trump that repealing Obamacare is "off the table."

“The president wanted to make another run at repeal and replace and I told the president that's off the table," the Senate minority leader said in his statement. "If he wants to work together to improve the existing health care system, we Democrats are open to his suggestions. A good place to start might be the Alexander-Murray negotiations that would stabilize the system and lower costs.”
