President Trump on Wednesday pledged that “heart” is a key ingredient of the GOP’s bill for repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
“I think and I hope, I can’t guarantee anything, but I hope we’re gonna surprise you with a really good plan,” he said during a rally in Cedar Rapids, IA, according to The Hill.
“I’ve been talking about a plan with some heart. I said, ‘add some money to it.’ A plan with heart.”
Trump also said that his presidency is infuriating detractors by constantly delivering successes to Americans.
The president also spoke for over an hour during his campaign-rally style speech in Iowa, ending with The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” playing him out.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly hopes to reveal a discussion draft of a bill for repealing and replacing Obamacare this Thursday.
McConnell then purportedly wants to hold a vote on the controversial legislation next week, a goal that has inspired several Republican senators to voice doubts about the process.
Republicans can only lose two votes in the Senate and still pass legislation for repealing and replacing ObamaCare assuming Vice President Mike Pence breaks a tie.
Democrats have accused their GOP counterparts of lacking transparency and keeping the public uncertain about their plan for replacing ObamaCare.
