Trump, not ready to give up on Obamacare repeal, calls Chuck Schumer

Trump, not ready to give up on Obamacare repeal, calls Chuck Schumer

President Trump looks to be turning to new allies to pass a health care bill after Senate Republicans failed yet again to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare last week.

Trump said he wanted test the waters for a "great HealthCare bill". Chuck Schumer on Friday to discuss the 2010 law, which Trump said "is badly broken, big premiums".

"It shows the President can move without hesitation or ideological impediment to make a deal with the Dems", a Republican source told Axios.

GST Council is mulling pre-GST regime benefits for exporters, says report
The small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with an annual turnover of Rs. 1.5 crore will be allowed to file quarterly returns . The Council made a decision to clear all tax refund claims of exporters for July by 10 October and for August by 18 October.

Although both parties say they're looking for a bipartisan solution to the health care dilemma, Republicans leaders in Congress were irritated by Trump last month after he reached a deal with Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on a spending bill and the debt ceiling. And a deal isn't impossible to imagine, considering Trump seems to lack any specific policy preferences on health care, and occasionally has sounded like a Democrat when discussing the issue (promising to cover everyone and not to cut Medicare or Medicaid).

As if the Trump Presidency couldn't get any more chaotic and out of the ordinary, the President of the United States just hinted via a tweet that we may be getting a new healthcare plan after all, and that it will be the Democrats, not the Republicans responsible for pushing through this possible Obamacare replacement.

In a series of tweets, Trump has been calling on the GOP to "keep their promise to America!" and "give America great healthcare".

Georgia lands quarterback Justin Fields, No. 1 player in Class of 2018
His commitment makes Georgia the only program in the country to sign/get commitments from more quarterback talent than Ohio State. When Fields, the nation's No. 1 overall recruit, pledged to Georgia Friday, an immediate stream of reactions were let loose.

"The president wanted to make another run at repeal and replace and I told him that's off the table", Schumer said.

Trump has suggested before that he would be open to negotiating with Democrats on health care, but there have been no clear signs of a compromise between Republicans who have sought to scrap former President Barack Obama's law while Democrats want to protect it.

By this Schumer is referring to talks that have been taking place between Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Democratic Sen. Since the health care law was passed in 2009, GOP leadership voted to repeal the law 54 times.
