Democrats on Tuesday embraced U.S. President Donald Trump's call to revive a fight over healthcare coverage, ensuring a prominent role for the issue in the 2020 election as Trump seeks a second term in office.

President Trump says Republicans will pass "a great health care package" after the 2020 election.

After a 2018 election cycle where voters were motivated by Republicans failed attempts to dismantle Obamacare, Trump's efforts last week to put it back on the political front burner took Congress by surprise. It will be truly great HealthCare that will work for America.

The tweets from Trump come after the Justice Department informed a federal appeals court last week that it approved of an appeals court decision that stated that the entire Obamacare statute is unconstitutional. The Republican Party will be known as the Party of Great HealtCare.

Trump's latest tweets punted the promise of a new GOP bill, which ran into resistance from Republicans in Congress. Healthcare, especially protections for people with pre-existing conditions, resonates with voters and helped Democrats last November. We'll have more on healthcare later in the broadcast. A Quinnipiac University poll last week found 55 per cent of Americans supporting the improvement and not the replacement of the nation's healthcare system.

The president and the White House did not provide additional details.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R, whose panel would be central to any such debate, also said last week that there was no plan to move forward.

Trump said that the Republican plan would be far better than Obamacare, citing impossibly high premiums and deductibles.

"In other words it will be far less expensive & much more usable than ObamaCare", Trump continued.

But the appetite for a proposal appeared to dissipate among Republicans, as Democrats controll the House of Representatives under Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The House vote is expected on Wednesday. During the campaign he said that the wall would be made of preset concrete; during his presidency, he switched to advocating metal slats.

"They [the Democrats] want "Medicare-for-All, government takeover of health care and the president wants to see health care returned to the power of the patient", said Sanders, providing no specifics to any potential GOP plan in the works. What a disgrace. The American people will not stand for the President playing cynical games with health care".

Trump announced Monday that the Republican Party will present a health care reform plan after the 2020 elections. "My guess is it's just probably a realistic assessment of what the field looks like for the next couple of years".

Sanders' latest defense of the GOP's inability to produce any Obamacare alternative gives credence to claims by Senator Chuck Schumer and other Democrats that Republicans simply don't have one to offer. Both senators said they were focused on drug prices - something they said they viewed as achievable - not the broader ACA replacement plan.
