President Trump promised Wednesday that the Republican’s bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare would have “heart”.
“I think and I hope, I can’t guarantee anything, but I hope we’re gonna surprise you with a really good plan,” Trump told the crowd during a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Wednesday.
“I’ve been talking about a plan with heart,” Trump said. “I said, ‘add some money to it!’ A plan with heart.”
Trump also bashed Democrats for being unwilling to work with Republicans on the ObamaCare repeal.
“If we went and got the single greatest healthcare plan in the history of the world, we would not get one Democrat vote,” Trump said. “Because they’re obstructionists.”
“If we came to you and said ‘Here’s your plan, you’re gonna have the greatest plan in history, and you’re gonna pay nothing,’ they’d vote against it,” Trump told the crowd.
“But ObamaCare is dead,” he continued.
Trump’s comments come one day after Sean Spicer confirmed that Trump made remarks in a private meeting with Senate Republicans that the House bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare was “mean, mean, mean,” and that he wanted to see the Senate bill have more “heart.”
“This is an area that the president believes passionately about,” Spicer told reporters on Tuesday.
