Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake Back McConnell on Twitter

Mitch McConnell Doesn't Sound Very Happy with the President

Mitch McConnell Doesn't Sound Very Happy with the President

I've been hearing repeal and replace now for for seven years, but I've only been doing this for two years ... "You saw that on full display a couple of weeks ago", when McConnell failed to muster a majority to push three different Republican health care plans through the chamber.

The real winner here, however, is House Speaker Paul Ryan, who seems to have successfully managed to duck the public blame for the health-care fiasco despite being at least as responsible as either Trump or McConnell. He said the timelines the White House set for legislative wins overhyped expectations, which his chamber hasn't been able to meet.

Several hours later, the president's tone took a motivational turn as he exhorted McConnell to "get back to work" and pass bills.

"I'll tell you what: If he doesn't get repeal-and-replace done and if he doesn't get taxes done, meaning cuts and reform, and if he doesn't get a very easy one to get done - infrastructure - if he doesn't get them done, then you can ask me that question", the president said. Soon after Mr. Trump spoke, Mr. Ryan's office sent a memo calling 2017 "the year of tax reform".

This reflects a familiar and unmistakable dynamic: a boss telling a subordinate what to do, while the boss wraps up the back nine at the country club he owns.

McConnell did not immediately respond.

"I fully support him", Mr. Hatch said on Twitter. Republicans have pledged to repeal Obamacare since 2010. "So now it's almost two years and all I hear is repeal and replace, and then I get there and I said 'where's the bill, I want to sign it' first day, and they don't have it".

Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump went back to his attack on Mitch McConnell for daring to question him over his plan to repeal and replace Obamcare.

JOHN YANG: He said that he thought that raid was to send a strong signal, that it was sort of going into his house before dawn. Dean Heller in Nevada, said on Fox News.

McConnell's Kentucky remarks also drew a tweet from Dan Scavino Jr., the White House social media director.

Por el futbolista, el Zenit había ofrecido 18 millones de euros, pero no hubo acuerdo con Boca por la forma de pago. El club está tomando una política en el sentido de que blinda a sus mejores futbolistas.

McConnell may have further irked the president by sniping at his penchant for Twitter.

Before the recess, Republican senators openly acknowledged that the executive and legislative branches had endured some growing pains in the first months of Trump's administration. And as long as McConnell adamantly refuses to consider a government shutdown, Democrats hold all the negotiating power over the budget.

"Nobody is going to be threatening us with anything", said Trump.

Have some thoughts to share?

The discounts are in the law, so the companies would have to raise premiums if Trump stops the reimbursements, as he has repeatedly threatened to do. At the mid-July meeting, it was Sen.

Meanwhile, Trump needs to keep the support of Republicans, who are the only ones that can confirm conservative judges, pass a giant tax cut and, most important, protect him from not only removal but also more serious inquiries that would explore his conflicts of interest and receipt of foreign money.

Trump urged McConnell Thursday to follow through with his pledge to repeal the law. She's doing a very, very good job.

"I'm very disappointed in Mitch", said Trump. "Let's hope he gets it done".

The repeal effort fell apart after weeks of wrangling to bring conservatives and centrists together to pass a bill.

He says the United States should be grateful. Lisa Murkowski, who ultimately voted against advancing the health care bill, hurt leadership's ability to get Murkowski's vote.
