In a series of tweets this morning, National Review Editor Rich Lowry urged readers to “believe” that President Donald Trump “actually wants to make sure that benefits are being paid for.”
Lowry, who has a long history of pushing Trump’s agenda, has made similar comments about other issues.
Lowry was responding to a tweet from a user who asked whether Trump would “like to see the repeal of the ACA and the creation of an alternative” that would give the American people a “better deal.”
“I would like to see it happen,” Lowry wrote.
“I think it’s a good idea.
I think it would be good for the country.”
The president has previously called for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, which was passed in 2010.
“The American people will make up their minds on it,” Lowry tweeted in July.
“What they don’t want to hear is that the president is working on it, but has not done anything.”
Lowry has also called the Republican tax bill “a total disaster,” and in August, he accused the White House of “trying to sabotage this country.”
“The president’s plan is a total disaster and the House bill, by contrast, is going to be a huge improvement,” Lowry said.
