Paul pledges support for McConnell

Reaching the 200-day mark of his presidency, Donald Trump is getting resistance not just from the Democrats and their enablers in the liberal media, but from members of his own party who refuse to give the president a major legislative victory.

"If there's blame to go around, people from the states, the senators that promised to vote for it then didn't, that's who I think there needs to be a discussion with", Paul said after a Lexington event to discuss his proposal to create health care associations. The survey was taken following last month's Senate derailment of the GOP drive to supplant much of President Barack Obama's statute with a diminished federal role in health care.

About 60 percent of people says that Trump and congressional Republicans are responsible for any problems with the health law. "Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!". A number of GOP lawmakers pointedly reminded Trump and other Republican critics that it was McConnell who ensured the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

While some have speculated that picking a fight with McConnell is unsafe, particularly because McConnell controls the Senate's agenda, Paul said he didn't think the public feud would deteriorate their relationship or the relationship Trump has with Congress. All of the measures failed to win the 50 votes needed in July.

"Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before", McConnell said, according to ABC affiliate WCPO. And not only do 78 percent of Americans want the Trump administration to do what it can to make ObamaCare work, but that includes 52 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of Trump supporters. The show of support came from moderates and conservatives. "While Congress is dithering about keeping its promise to repeal [Obamacare] President Trump is keeping his promises with rapid-fire speed". About a fifth of respondents (21 percent) say Republicans should continue their work on a bill, while a similarly sized portion (21 percent) said they are ready to move on from healthcare.
