Trump is ready to sign ANY bill, no matter who it hurts, just to put a check in the win column.

GOP senator: McConnell Medicaid comments a 'breach of trust'

Quote:
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is hedging over whether he'll back the Senate's new ObamaCare replacement bill.

Johnson initially indicated he could back the measure, but told a local newspaper that he's now not so sure because of comments by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) suggesting some Medicaid cuts in the bill may not happen.

"I am concerned about Leader [Mitch] McConnell's comments to apparently some of my Republican colleagues 'Don't worry about some of the Medicaid reforms, those are scheduled so far in the future they'll never take effect,'" Johnson told the Green Bay Press-Gazette in remarks that were first published on Friday.

The Senate GOP bill dramatically reforms and scales back Medicaid funding a move that is drawing pushback from several key swing votes. But, according to The Washington Post, McConnell is privately telling undecided moderates that some of the deepest cuts to the program will never happen.

Johnson stressed he has to "confirm" McConnell's comments, but if that is the Kentucky Republican's pitch it would be a "pretty significant breach of trust" with many conservatives supporting the bill because it includes entitlement reform.

"I think those comments are going to really put the motion to proceed in jeopardy, whether it's on my part or others," he said.
This article was from a couple of hours ago, Johnson has since confirmed with other senators the the reported comments by McConnell were real. Turns out it's hard to pass a bill when you're telling half of your delegation "We're totally cutting Medicaid," and the other half "We're totally not cutting Medicaid."

Senators Lee and Moran have come out as nos. Once again the bill is dead, and hopefully for good this time.
