Unbelievable! Trump just called his own healthcare bill ‘mean’. Yes, the same one he just forced down our throats and was utterly proud of. The one that would probably leave most of America without healthcare. YES, that one.

The hypocrite tried to change his stance on the American Health Care Act aka ‘Trumpcare’ after the Senate Parliamentarian just deemed it to be ‘improper’. According to CNN, during a meeting about healthcare with Republican Senators Tuesday, Trump referred to his bill as mean. But on May 4th, he was just tweeting to a different tune when the trash-care passed,
“It was a GREAT day for the United States of America! This is a great plan that is a repeal & replace of ObamaCare. Make no mistake about it.”
The ridiculous bill was one that Democrats knew couldn’t truly be passed unless approved by the Senate Parliamentarian, the people who actually hold the gavel in this whole situation. However, Trump and his pride sought out to get it passed anyway on the House floor, just for it to be deemed ‘improper’ by the parliamentarian. PATHETIC!
CNN reported that Trump told the lawmakers that the House bill didn’t go far enough in protecting individuals in the marketplace — and appeared to use that as his rationale for why he has ambiguously called twice for the Senate to “add more money” to the bill.
According to The Huffington Post, He also said the Senate version of the bill should be “more generous.” We will see if this revision will put the real Amercian before the rich Republicans, protect the rights of women and ensure meds and care for the ones with critical illnesses. Trump’s only goal here is to look better than Obama, but he just looks stupid.
