Transcript for President Trump comments on health care bill collapse
Thank you very much we will very close. And very very tight margin. We had no Democrat support we have no votes from the Democrats. They weren't gonna give us a single certainly a difficult thing to do. I've been saying for the last year and a half. That the best thing we can do politically speaking. He's let Obama. Exploding right now. It says many states have. Problems almost all say they. Who's in Tennessee yesterday and it must have them. Estate in terms of an injured at knows you that's happened. And the difference Suggs in Kentucky the other day and similar things. So Obama cares. With no Democrats support we couldn't quite get that we use in very small number of votes short. Jams getting our bills passed lot of people don't realize how good oh. Because that would that would phase one but when you whip phase two. Which is mostly signs. Secretary prices. And Hewitt page three which was what got. Kent McDill. Premiums were gunned down and it would have been very stable with members. But that's okay but we're very very close. Again I think what will happen if obamacare unfortunately it will explode could have occurred here. Last year you had over a 100% increase is it. Various places in Arizona I understand it's going up rapidly again I think it last year last 260%. Many places 506070%. I guess it averaged. Over the average was very very. And this year should be much worse there's so what would be really good. Democrats support it the Democrats what it explodes which it wills. If they got together with us and get ill health care. And I think that's and I think that loses. Our Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer because now they don't Obama they don't 100%. And this is not a Republican health care it's not anything but Democrat. Health care. And they have obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist which it well. At some point in the near future. And just remember this. This. When they all become civilized get together. And try to work out a great health care bill for the people of this country. World. Totally open. I want to thank the Republican Party. I want to thank all right what are very hard and we'll tell you that he worked very very hard. Top price at my pet's. Flight vice president vice president. Everybody worked hard. I worked as a team player. Upwards in the past. I think very clear it was a speech I've made a very few plated pension. That perhaps the best they can happen exactly what happened today. Because well Linda they truly great health care bill in the future after. This mess known as the Bob Kerrey's so I want to thank everybody for being here in. Golf course was. I think this is something that certainly listen to speakers. We all learned a lot. We learned a lot about loyalty we learned a lot about the vote getting process. We learned a lot about some very arcane rules. In obviously both the senate and then the house. So it could certainly from it's been very interesting experience. But in the end I think it's going to be an experience that leads to an even better. Health care plan so thank you over much she uses.
