class="story-body__introduction">President Donald Trump has said the new Republican healthcare policy should be to allow the current law to collapse, BBC report."As I have always said, let ObamaCare fail and then come together and do a great healthcare plan. Stay tuned!" he tweeted. Support for the Republican Senate bill fell apart on Monday when two more senators said they could not back it. The party's Senate leader, Mitch McConnell, immediately vowed to hold a vote to repeal Obamacare only. During a speech from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Mr McConnell said Republicans would "push forward" with a plan to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a "two-year, stable transition" period to give Congress time to come up with a replacement plan. "We should not give up," Mr McConnell said. "Passing this legislation will provide an opportunity for senators of all parties to engage with a fresh start and a new beginning for the American people." President Trump backed that plan on Monday night but changed his tune on Tuesday morning by proposing to simply let Obamacare - which has been marred by rising premiums and dwindling insurance provision - die on its own. Without a replacement bill, analysts have estimated that millions of people would lose health insurance. Republicans believe that Obamacare, which extended insurance to 20 million more Americans, will wither on its own. They viewed it as an overreach of the federal government and argue patients have less choice and higher premiums. The party's proposed alternative had kept key Obamacare taxes on the wealthy, while imposing sharp cuts to healthcare for the poor and allowing insurers to offer less coverage.
