President Donald Trump proved why he was the person destined to write the book on “The Art of the Deal” after he convinced members of the Republican Study Committee to support legislation that would begin overhauling former President Barack Obama’s signature health care bill.
The Washington Examiner reported that the news came after the president met on Friday with Republican lawmakers who are members of the conservative Republican Study Committee. They weren’t completely convinced about the Republican version on the bill.
After the meeting, Trump spoke from the Oval Office, where he said the former president’s health care plan was ready to “implode” and he was 100 percent behind the Republican plan.
He added that he had met with a majority of Republican lawmakers who were weren’t on board with the Republican legislation and was able to close the deal. Those “mostly nos” are now yeses, he said.
“I want everyone to know that every single person in this room is now a ‘yes,’” Trump said.
The president acknowledged “certain changes” were made to the plan before declaring the Affordable Care Act was now a “dead health care plan.”
RSC Chairman Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., released a statement after meeting with the president and said he could support the bill as long as it provided states with options to block grant Medicaid, implemented work requirements for able-bodied Medicaid recipients without dependents and protected the unborn by ensuring that tax credits in the bill would not be used to pay for abortions.
It looks like there’s good reason why Trump’s book, “The Art of the Deal,” is a best-seller. It would seem that the president knows how to negotiate and get people to not only listen to him but also work with him to reach a common goal.
