Charles Krauthammer said Tuesday that under President Trump, Republicans own health care policy, and will be blamed or applauded whether it fails or succeeds.
Krauthammer said that despite the fact ObamaCare passed with purely Democratic support, there is no way to blame Democrats under a Republican administration.

“When he’s sworn in, he owns the economy and the health care system no matter what,” he said.
Krauthammer added that it will be difficult for Republicans to come to consensus on health care reform.

Combining that fact with the conservatives’ platform against government mandates, Krauthammer said Republicans will have a tough time coming to such consensus.
