Trump: Insurance company bailouts, Congress bailouts will end soon if healthcare bill not approved


WASHINGTON – In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump said bailouts for insurance companies and members of Congress will end soon if a new healthcare bill is not approved quickly.

The president also tweeted that citizens "are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!"

Trump also criticized Senate rules requiring 60 votes to overcome a filibuster in a series of tweets Saturday morning.

"Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!" he tweeted.

The Senate rejected a measure to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act Friday morning.
