Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday he would bring the Alexander-Murray bipartisan health care bill to the floor if President Donald Trump said he would sign it.
“I’m not sure yet, what the president is searching for here, yet I’ll be glad to convey a bill to the floor on the off chance that I know President Trump would sign it,” McConnell said on CNN’s “Condition of the Union.”
Talking with Dana Bash, McConnell (R-Ky.) said he has not gotten notification from the president on what sort of health care bill Trump would sign.
“In the event that there is a requirement for some sort of break advance here to balance out the market, we require a bill the president will really sign,” McConnell said.
This previous week, Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) declared they had achieved a concurrence on an Obamacare bargain that would support a key protection appropriation program.
