Mulvaney guarantees Americans covered by Obama health care law won't lose coverage

After years of running away from his implementation, as MA governor, of a health care overhaul that helped inspire Obamacare, freshman Sen.

Surprised and feeling his oats by the "no collusion" verdict from a Mueller report that only Trump's recently appointed attorney general has read, the president wants to celebrate by burning the Affordable Care Act in a trash fire ritual, leaving millions of Americans without health care insurance.

Under the rule, businesses and individuals can team up to create group health plans that offer less expensive coverage without complying with numerous requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

Mr. Trump said he tasked specific Senate Republicans Thursday to form a "really great" health care plan and follow through with his promise to make the Republicans "the party of health care".

"Was this a good week for the Trump administration?"

There's no sign that his administration has a comprehensive health care plan, and there doesn't seem to be a consensus among Republicans in Congress. "So, and I've been saying that, the Republicans are going to end up being the party of health care".

Spokesmen for Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Rick Scott of Florida, two of the Republican senators Trump listed as being part of the group, said the senators have continued to have conversations with the President and their colleagues about healthcare issues, but made no mention of a working group. John Barrasso (R-WY) to lead the effort.

Just a day earlier, Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff and the former White House legislative affairs director, claimed on CNN that "the President will be putting forward plans this year" to replace Obamacare through Congress.

A third anonymous GOP senator described the lawsuit as political suicide for Republicans, telling The Hill, "The time frame they've chosen to pursue is a toxic one because of the election cycle that we're already in".
