AP FACT CHECK: Trump's odd threat on Congress health care

Schumer's 'Better Deal' aims to recreate Dems' 'New Deal' magic

On the Senate floor, there was no indication of any plan by Republican leaders to hold a new vote on health care; for now, they remain one vote short, as few on Capitol Hill believe there is a chance that any of the three "No" votes will flip anytime soon - Sen.

"President Trump is right: the subsidies must be eliminated to incentivize members of Congress to keep their promise and repeal Obamacare", Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said in a statement posted on his website Tuesday.

The US bishops also called for a bipartisan solution to the impasse. Tim Kaine, the former Democratic vice presidential candidate, tells me he wants the package to include some version of his bill to create a permanent reinsurance program (no cost estimate yet).

And although those Senators are ready to move on, others are downright regretful of ever supporting Trump in the first place. And, of course, the American Health Care Act push earlier this year that, so far, hasn't become law. They had hoped the Democrats would be replaced in the Senate by Republicans. "Please take the appropriate amount from my paycheck each month".

The CBO stressed that this was a best guess, its accountants didn't have time to do a full score because it was introduced only hours before Senators voted on it.

"We have been informed by the majority of the Democrats in a letter I just received today that most of the principles that would get the country rolling again, they're not interested in addressing", McConnell said. As with prescription drugs there is no control and now we hear the ACA is "dying".

However, Trump's threats to the Congress may be futile, as the party simply does not have the votes to repeal Obamacare, despite the controversy the bill has elicited over the past years.

Doing away with the mandate and penalties for people who do not get insurance means young healthy people would likely go without. "We can't have that".

To be sure, the Affordable Car Act gives the executive branch broad discretion on how to shape health insurance policies.

Mulvaney appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday.

Everyone seems to understand this with the exception of Donald Trump. Claire McCaskill chooses to forgo the employer contribution and buys her insurance, like other Missourians, from the national Obamacare exchange.

Congress faces several other pressing issues that will be demanding lawmakers' attention, including deadlines at the end of September to raise the federal debt ceiling and fund government agencies for the coming fiscal year.
