On Sunday, President Donald Trump headed out to the golf course, but his trip wasn’t simply for entertainment purposes. Trump took along Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney to talk policy.
On the golf course, Trump and Paul had a lengthy discussion about repealing and replacing Obamacare — a positive sign that Trump is still serious about keeping his campaign promise, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Paul has been an advocate of completely repealing Obamacare, and was opposed to the House plan that would have used three separate stages to repeal Obamacare and replace it slowly.
“Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of health care. I continue to be very optimistic that we are getting closer and closer to an agreement on repealing Obamacare,” Paul stated after he returned from the golf course with Trump.
Trump has lashed out at the House Freedom Caucus for its actions that effectively killed the bill, but he has also indicated that he might be willing to work with them (or Democrats) to fix the health care system, CNN noted.
After initially stating that he was finished with health care after the Republican alternative failed to even go to a vote, Trump has taken steps in recent days that indicate he isn’t quite finished yet.
Trump doesn’t like to lose, so he isn’t going to give up on health care reform that easily.
Fox News noted that Paul has his own plan to repeal Obamacare, but it is unclear if he used his time out on the links with Trump to pitch him his plan.
No one ever said that repealing and replacing Obamacare would be easy. Trump got his first taste of just how hard it is to get anything done in Washington, D.C., when he tried it the first time.
Despite their differences, Trump and Paul agree that Obamacare needs to be repealed. If these two can work together, America will benefit tremendously.
