Transcript for Health care vote can wait until 2020: Trump
So in other tweets that president trump was putting out this morning he was also talking about the Affordable Care Act in how he once upon the vote. Punt the vote until after the election. So I want to bring in John Parkinson who is live on Capitol Hill. John just tell me how congressional Democrats were reacting to this. They're getting ear eye and I mean I think the president's really plane into the democratic playbook at this point. Then about a week that they've just every day been out here talking about health care and this really plays into the democratic base is strength right now I think. You know a week ago we saw the Department of Justice sign on to this Texas decision to overturn all of Obama care. And without a plan from Republicans to replace that Democrats have really been hammering them each and every day. This morning we had House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer out here on capitol ho allow other democratic colleagues. And they're talking about a couple resolutions that are going to be moving through congress in the next couple days police in the house well the vote today. On a resolution that condemns this action from DOJ and calls on the truck administration to withdraw its support for this legal decision. And we've got to bite here from Chuck Schumer where he's really just. I mean just so Gideon so happy about what the president said today last night when he's reversing this decision to put off a vote until twentieth when he won. Republicans failed to pass any of their health care plans in congress. So they're trying to repeal health care in the courts. This reeks of desperation. And they do not have a back up plan. Last night the president tweeted. That they will come up with their plan in 20/20 one. Translation. They have no health care plan. It's the same old song they've been saying they are for repeal. They have no replace. President trump confirmed. That he will hold Americans hostage. Through the 20/20 election when it comes to health care. Yeah I see that instant so that's. Go ahead. I was just say that's two years from our really and for you know a lot of Republicans that are on the fence and tight races I think that they're going to be relieved. To hear that the president's putting the soft. You know Susan Collins was out last week right after the Department of Justice. Said that there are signing on supported this. This decision and she said you guys are putting that you know the cart before the horse we need a plan to replace obamacare before we try and overturn it. And so I think this is good news for a lot of Republicans are privately were fuming about this decision from the administration. Are I thank you so much we appreciate those updates.
