On Friday, President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans suffered a damaging setback when the American Healthcare Act, the Republican alternative to Obamacare, was yanked from the House floor before it was voted on.
While the liberal media immediately began salivating over the possibility of more Republican infighting, Trump tried to shift gears quickly and blamed the Democrats for the Republican bill bottoming out, The Daily Caller reported.
“I think what will happen is, Obamacare, unfortunately, will explode. I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer because they own Obamacare,” Trump stated.
“This not anything but Democratic health care,” Trump explained from the Oval Office. “They have Obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist. This is not our bill. This is their bill. When they become civilized and try to work out a health care bill for the great people of our country, we are open to it. Whenever they’re ready, we’re ready.”
Republicans are already pointing fingers over who is to blame for the blow-up. Moderates are blaming conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus for being too stubborn. The Freedom Caucus is blaming moderates for not going far enough with the bill.
But the real problem is Obamacare, and the Democrats who created it, Trump said.
“Bad things are going to happen to Obamacare. It’s not sustainable. We will end up with a truly great health care bill in the future after this mess known as Obamacare explodes,” Trump said.

For now, Obamacare is here to stay, until Republicans figure out how to work with each other instead of bickering and arguing.
Ultimately, the Democrats will be responsible for what happens with Obamacare because they are the ones who crafted the bill. Instead of working with Republicans on the AHCA, they chose to stand by and do nothing.
If Democrats are serious about helping America and fixing the health care system, they need to reach out to Republicans to work towards crafting a better bill that will serve the interests of all Americans.
