President Donald Trump spoke out about the collapse of the GOP Obamacare repeal and made a shocking pronouncement – the real losers of the GOP failure were Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer! Why? Because now they would own Obamacare completely.

“I’ve been saying for a year and a half that the best thing we could do –politically speaking– is to let Obamacare explode, it is exploding right now, many states have big problems. Almost all states have big problems. So Obamacare is exploding, with no Democrat support we couldn’t quite get there, we were just a few votes short, in terms of getting our bill passed. A lot of people don’t realize how good our bill was because they were viewing Phase One. Phase Two, which was mostly the signings of Sec. Price… and you add Phase Three, which I think we would have gotten, it became a great bill… but that is okay.

I think what will happen is Obamacare, will, unfortunately, explode. It is going to have a bad year. Last year you had over 100% increases in various places… Many places 50-60-70%… This year should be much worse for Obamacare.

What would be good, is if the Democrats, when it explodes, got together and worked with us and got a real health care bill. I would be totally open to it and I think it is going to happen. I think the losers are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because now they own Obamacare, 100% own it. It is not a Republican healthcare, it is not anything but a Democrat healthcare, and they have Obamacare for a little while longer. This is not our bill, this is their bill.

I want to thank Paul Ryan. He worked very, very hard. Tom Price and Mike Pence… everybody worked hard. I worked as a team player, and would love to have seen it pass.

We learned a lot about loyalty, we learned about the bill process, we learned a lot of arcane rules in obviously both the Senate and the House, so for me it has been a very interesting experience.”
