nearvideo President Trump is focused on health reform, according to Mueller report
On the heels of the Miller report, concluding there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, President of Trump is that he had his “best week.” But the revival of the health-care can to derail the debate, Fox News-politics-editor-in-chief Chris Stirewalt said on Wednesday.
In a sharp political piviot, the Ministry of justice said it would move forward to eliminate President Obama’s signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), according to a court as unconstitutional.
While on Wednesday the All-Star panel segment on Fox News’ “special report with Bret Baier” Stirewalt, along with National Journal politics editor Josh Kraushaar and national security analyst from Morgan Ortagus — weighed in on the political consequences of Trump’s renewed fight against the ACA, also known as ObamaCare.
CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TRUMP THE PIVOT TO BE UNSETTLED, TO FIGHT OBAMACARE, AFTER MÜLLER’S SUMMARY
Stirewalt explained that this was a “good week” for the Republican party and the “best week of Donald Trump presidency,” due to the positive results of the Mueller report.
“Immerse yourself in this in this way is not politically well-versed for one simple reason: ObamaCare is not popular,” Stirewalt said the panel. “It is about 50 percent, and people are generally satisfied. Quinnipiac polling this week has been absolutely clear: the people do not want to take away from the status quo, what we have, and that is exactly what the Republicans.”
Kraushaar agreed, calling for a fight over ObamaCare to a potentially “self inflicting wound” for President trump, because health care is “a Problem, the Republicans.”
“Voters, both Republicans and Democrats, are incremental ists. You are not looking at the party, that is gonna be the status quo. And you have a lot of talk from Democrats, single-payer, talk about a lot of really radical proposals to the presidential election,” Kraushaar said. “Well, here you have to say Trump now,” I just want to rip on ObamaCare and I’m going to support this judgment.’ So you have a lot of congressional Republicans are really scratching their heads.”

In the meantime, Ortagus said Republicans “should not be running away from health care” – he shows how the 2018 midterms were about the Problem, and not Müller Russia is investigation.
“You make this whole election about federalism versus socialism,” she added, with an eye to the future 2020, “and if you do, the plays in the broader issues.”
