A growing majority of Americans - including a sharply increasing number of Republicans - oppose an outright repeal of Obamacare, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll, signaling trouble for Republicans still hoping to dismantle the 2010 health care law.
'Doesn't it just make you sick?,' the controversial Trump-supporter said. "And I think we're just going to have to see how that works out". Now they've tried to do it in a little over a month and failed miserably. "But at this time, at this time today, there are other things that we have on our priority list that we're moving on to". "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future". We need bipartisan problem-solving, ' he wrote on Facebook.
After the bill collapsed on Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump accused the Democrats of obstruction, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer accused the president of incompetence, House Speaker Paul Ryan said health care was done, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi bragged that it was a great day. But Tuesday morning, they exchanged pledges of unity in a closed-door meeting and emerged eager to continue their efforts on health care, although they provided no specific plans or timeline for how they would proceed.
Speaking after the defeat in the Oval Office, Trump blamed Democrats for the failure of the bill despite opposition from his own side blocking its passage.
And House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., claimed, "I think we're closer today to repealing Obamacare than we've ever been before".
Tuesday's vow was the strongest yet from Ryan, and other leaders also reaffirmed their longstanding commitment to repealing and replacing the law.

Republicans had long promised to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature domestic healthcare policy, but could not get their various factions to agree on a bill.
Neither Trump nor the House leaders gave an indication about when a new health care bill would be ready for action.
"We're looking at all kinds of options to get out to yes", House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) told reporters as he exited the meeting.
That includes an historic effort to overhaul the tax code, so work on health care will have to be done along a parallel track.
The answers to that question could determine how the setback affects the reputations of the Trump White House and Congress, how well those two Washington, D.C., power centers get along from now on, and how leaders move forward on health care and other issues on the president's agenda. "We still must repeal Obamacare, because Americans deserve a better system that ensures every American family has access to quality care". It is way past the time that we, as Americans, respect the lives of our seniors, children born with catastrophic diseases, the mentally ill, people with pre-existing illnesses, mothers and all others who are in need of health care but can not afford it.
