Supporters look to Trump to “make good deals” on legislation; opponents see a president distracted

Here’s something Americans agree on: they think President Trump is trying to do a lot – though it’s too much for some. Whether they like it all is a different matter, of course. And a lot of activity has meant there are a lot of things for supporters to cheer…and for opponents to dislike.

His strongest backers like just about all they see – “this is what I voted for,” they say – though they’re notably not yet sold on the health-care bill. They turn to Mr. Trump for accurate information over other sources, believe he was wiretapped, describe him as “focused” and that he makes them feel “confident” in him.

Nancy Pelosi warns Trump voters could lose out under GOP Obamacare replacement

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview broadcast Sunday that President Trump’s supporters might lose out if Obamacare is replaced with the new Republican plan.

“Republicans will find any excuse to pull money up to the high end at the expense of the working class,” Pelosi said in an interview taped Friday with CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “And what’s so strange about it all is many of the people, many of the millions of people who are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act voted for Donald Trump. They live in red areas. That money will be taken from red areas.”

“Any of the people who will be advantaged by the money going to the high end will be in blue areas. How’s that? It’s so wrong,” she continued.

Ted Cruz says he won’t vote for GOP health care bill as it stands

As Republicans continue to debate their plan for health care overhaul, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday that he won’t vote for the bill as it stands because it will not solve the problem of rising insurance premiums.

“I cannot vote for any bill that keeps premiums rising,” Cruz said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
