With the debacle of Ryancare, Republicans are reeling a bit from their current inability to get rid of Obamacare. With a monstrous in so desperate need of removal, it has become quite the monumental task for President Trump to unify the party and take care of business.
With various types of Republicans inside the US House, and seeing Speaker Paul Ryan’s incompetence in trying to herd these cats, the president has taken matters into his own hands and has started to build rapport with as many representatives and senators as possible in order to ultimately take Obama’s signature law and decimate it for the good of all Americans.
So President Trump, in a more congenial environment, invited Senator Rand Paul for a round of golf and chit-chat on health care reform.
From The Blaze:
Despite House Republicans’ recent failure to pass health care reform, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Sunday that he is “very optimistic” about Obamacare being repealed and replaced in the near future.
Paul’s comments came after he spent the day golfing with President Donald Trump and White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney at Trump’s Washington, D.C.-area golf course, where the trio gathered to discuss a “variety of topics,” including health care reform, according to a White House pool report.
I had a great time today with @realDonaldTrump and believe we are getting closer to an agreement on health care!

In comments to the White House press pool upon arriving back at the White House, Paul continued: “We had a great day with the president. 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.”
Earlier in the day, Trump took to his personal Twitter account to offer some hope to Republicans left disappointed by last month’s failed health care bill.
Talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on, and will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck.

Trump’s tone on Sunday, along with the positive comments from Paul, suggest the president may be reversing course after he said last month that he was “moving on” from health care reform after House GOP leadership was forced to pull the American Health Care Act.
Democrats, beware. Obamacare will be eliminated. Pelosi may be enjoying a minor victory right now, but she will be a puddle of tears once the right bill goes through both House and Senate.
It may take a little bit of time, Americans, but do not fret. We will get rid of this horrendous law, with President Trump at the helm!
