Senator Refutes Trump’s Claims that Hospitalization Stalled Obamacare Repeal

Sen. Thad Cochran, R-MS, corrected President Trump on Wednesday after the President claimed multiple times that a hospitalized Senator stalled the most recent GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

After Sens. Susan Collins, R-ME, John McCain, R-AZ, and Rand Paul, R-KY, announced their opposition to the Graham-Cassidy legislation doing away with Obamacare the bill was effectively dead.

But, while speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Trump blamed a hospitalized Senator for preventing the bill form passage.

“We have the votes for health care,” he told reporters as he walked to Marine One. “We have one senator that’s in the hospital. He can’t vote because he’s in the hospital.”
