Trump ’s confidence in Republicans’ current health care reform efforts seems to contradict the numerous reports that have surfaced over the past week suggesting many Republican congressmen and think tanks are staunchly opposed to the House GOP leadership’s proposed Obamacare

WASHINGTON — In a meeting with Republican senators involved in drafting a health care plan, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that "everyone's going to be happy" with the outcome.

"The Senate is working very very hard, and specifically the folks in this room, and I really appreciate what you're doing, to come out with a bill that's going to be a phenomenal bill for the people of this country," Trump said at the White House meeting.

A group of GOP senators are working on a plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act after the House passed their own version last month. If the Senate succeeds in approving a bill, it will then have to be reconciled with the House version before both chambers vote again on the final, compromise legislation.

Trump Calls Health Care Bill He Celebrated in the Rose Garden ‘Mean’

  Trump Calls Health Care Bill He Celebrated in the Rose Garden ‘Mean’ President Donald Trump told GOP Senators that he thinks the American Health Care Act (AHCA) passed by the House is "mean", according to the Associated Press. The House health care bill, passed under the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan and championed by the president, is unlikely to pass the Senate — and lawmakers are now working to craft an entirely new bill.In a rebuke of the House bill, congressional sources told the AP that Trump said to 15 GOP Senators over lunch on Tuesday that he wants their legislation to be “more generous.

“ Generous , kind , with heart . That is what I am saying,” Trump said. “And that may be adding additional money into it. How Trump might doom the GOP health care bill .

Few details are known about the Senate plan since the working group is operating in secret and has suggested it will keep its proposal under wraps as long as possible.

But Trump pledged the bill would be "generous, kind, and with heart," suggesting it may get "additional money" added to it.

Republican lawmakers have in the past chafed at Trump's tendency to make promises about the timing and substance of legislation over which he has little control, and his statements Wednesday may be difficult to follow through on.

The House narrowly passed the American Health Care Act last month only after intense internal negotiations, and additional funding may turn off the House Freedom Caucus and other conservatives concerned about spending.

And with polls showing fewer than a third of Americans support the House plan, and Democrats pledging all-out opposition to the Senate bill, it seems unlikely that everyone will be pleased.

Later Tuesday, Trump traveled to Wisconsin where he lamented that Democrats would likely never vote for the GOP health care plan because they were more focused on blocking his agenda.

"No matter how good it is, we will get no obstructionist Democrat votes," Trump said after landing in the state for an event.

U.S. one of world's worst on health divide between rich, poor .
The U.S. has one of the world's largest health disparities between the rich and poor — behind only Chile and Portugal — and its healthcare system and lack of social supports are to blame, experts say. Researchers examining surveys on health and income from people in 32 countries found poor Americans reported worse health than rich U.S. residents in significant numbers. Of the poorest third of Americans surveyed, 38.2% reported “fair or poor health” compared to just 12.3% of the richest third, leaving the U.S.
