President Donald Trump on Saturday let everyone, especially purported members of his own party, know he’s not happy with the recent failed healthcare repeal vote.
In a lengthy tweet screed, the president lashed out against “foolish” Republican leadership for failing to pass a “skinny” repeal bill, and urged the passage of a simple 51 majority vote rule.
Transcript of the tweets below:
“Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!”
“The very outdated filibuster rule must go. Budget reconciliation is killing R’s in Senate. Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN. IT’S TIME!”
“Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don’t go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time……”
“….8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate’s Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!”
“If the Senate Democrats ever got the chance, they would switch to a 51 majority vote in first minute. They are laughing at R’s. MAKE CHANGE!”
“After seven years of “talking” Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!”
The president also threatened congress members’ healthcare options if a successful repeal could not be agreed upon, and later questioned whether Republicans were “total quitters” for refusing to pursue the effort.
“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”
“Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!”
Friday’s vote was voted down 49-51, with many blaming Arizona Sen. John McCain for casting the deciding vote which doomed the repeal.
