Trump Calls GOP Health Care Bill ‘Mean’ and Democrats Pounce,
Republicans Worry

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump wants to pass health care reform. But his most consequential action on the issue this month — calling the bill the House passed “mean” in a private meeting with Senate Republicans — has only made things more difficult.

.

Trump’s comment was not entirely off-the-cuff. The President, those close to him say, has read coverage about how health care reform could kick millions off health insurance and slash Medicaid spending and hike premiums for older Americans — and has taken the implications of the bill to heart. Before the meeting in which he called the bill “mean,” Trump publicly said the Senate should spend more to make the plan “generous, kind (and) with heart.”

.

But by describing the House bill as “mean,” Trump has both armed Democrats with a powerful tool to rally their base and caused skeptical Republicans, especially those who Trump will soon ask to go out on a limb for the bill, to question their loyalty to a President who hasn’t been consistent on this issue. The calculation for those Republicans goes like this: Why endanger yourself for a unpopular bill that the President will decry it mere weeks after he celebrates it?

.

After all, Trump touted the House GOP health care bill when it passed last month in a celebration at the White House, where he called it “incredibly well-crafted.”

The meaning of ‘mean’

.

The President’s “mean” comment, though, has not only undermined his negotiating power in the upcoming Senate discussions, it has also left House Republicans scratching their heads about how Trump could have sold a bill that he thought was “mean.”

.

Trump had applauded the last-minute deal that allowed states to waive requirements that insurers cover essential health benefits, and a key protection for people with pre-existing conditions known as community rating. It was that deal that ultimately brought the House Freedom Caucus on board, and it was that deal that left moderates walking away from the legislation.

.

But time and time again, in closed-door meetings, Trump tried to convince moderates that the House bill was the right way forward.
Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican and member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was flummoxed when CNN asked him what he thought of the President calling the bill “mean.”

.

“The one,” he asked, “that he had us come over and celebrate?”
Rep. Charlie Dent, a moderate from Pennsylvania who voted against the House health care bill, said that many members were “taken aback” when they read what the President said.

.

“For those who voted ‘yes’ on the House health care bill, I suspect they will be a bit more wary on future high-profile, highly controversial matters,” Dent said. “They will be more cautious. It’s a fact.”

.

He added, “A lot of members in the House are unhappy about the comments particularly those who were ‘yes’ votes. You don’t have to be very bright to figure out how to write a campaign ad off that.”
