Tuesday, voting for Donald Trump’s health care plan was put on hold by GOP leaders when they realized there weren’t enough votes to get it passed. Immediately after that, Trump held a meeting with the leaders saying It’s ok if the plan fails. Basically giving up the fight.
Today, Trump is singing a different tune. Our indecisive leader headed to Twitter to now promote his failing Affordable Care Act (ACA). Guess he was feeling salty about how the media highlighted his now nonchalant attitude about ACA. His GOP leaders have now snatched up the baton trying to figure out what to do to get the votes they need. So, Trump needed to save face. He took to Twitter saying
Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare. Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.

I just finished a great meeting with the Republican Senators concerning HealthCare. They really want to get it right, unlike OCare!

A victory in what way exactly? And how will he make it ‘right’? Trump can’t even elaborate on that because the truth is his health care plan would only hurt America rather than help us. Since The President doesn’t know exactly what his plan will do, Twitter didn’t have an issue educating him with some facts.
Getting it right does not mean 22 million people losing their health insurance so rich people can get a tax cut.

I don’t consider 62,800 children losing health insurance to be “winning”. It’s a shame if you do. pic.twitter.com/k0qr31yySB

Fixing healthcare is not the first thing I think of when 22 million more uninsured in order to pay tax cut for the rich #MedicaidMatters

I guarantee you haven’t read the bill. You just want it to go through because you don’t like “Obamacare” because Obamas name is in it.

The problem is “victory” means illness, bankruptcy, or death for a lot of people. People don’t like that kind of #winning

As all these brilliant Tweeters said, Trump doesn’t have a clue what his bill is about and he doesn’t care. He is pushing it off of pride. Millions of Americans will be without health care all because the rich want more money. Many Americans will die because of Trump. That is disgusting. The president we have is disgusting. Hopefully, ACA fails ultimately and we can focus on keeping and improving the greatness that is Obamacare. The plan that is for the people.
