Trump: 'Let Obamacare Fail, Then Everybody's Going to Have to Come Together And Fix It'

President Trump said Tuesday Obamacare should be left to fail seeing as how Republicans could not come together to pass a healthcare bill of their own.

"[Obamacare is] an absolute disaster," Trump said, "and I think you'll also agree that I've been saying for a long time, let Obamacare fail, and then everybody's going to have to come together and fix it."

"And come up with a new plan and a plan that's really good for the people with much lower premiums, much lower costs and much better protection," he said.

Trump continued: "I've been saying that, Mike [Pence], I think you'll agree, for a long time. Let Obamacare fail. It will be a lot easier, and I think we're probably in that position where we'll just let Obamacare fail. We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We'll let Obamacare fail, and then Democrats will come to us and say, how do we fix it? How do we fix it? Or how do we come up with a new plan?"

After the failure to pass McConnell care, Republicans floated passing a simple repeal of Obamacare, which would have been the best choice.

Unfortunately, two female Republican senators who pledged to repeal Obamacare in 2015 changed their minds and said they'll no longer vote to repeal it because they refuse to make tough decisions which could jeopardize their political careers.

From The Daily Caller:
Two Republicans senators who voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015 now say they will not support a similar bill by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Forty-eight current Republican senators supported the 2015 Obamacare repeal bill, including Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. Now Murkowski and Moore Capito oppose the McConnell measure. Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins has also said she will vote “no,” which is the same position she had in 2015.
Truly pathetic.
