After Republicans finally took a legit step in the process of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, Democrats were quick to push back. As the pressure mounts on Donald Trump and the GOP in Congress to explain their Health Care Bill, advisers to the president like Kellyanne Conway are doing their part to defend it.

Conway on health care

The battle over the Affordable Care Act has lasted almost eight years, with Republicans struggling to gain any real ground in the fight with a Democrat in the White House. Since former President Barack Obama singed Obamacare into law back in January 2009, Republicans have tired to repeal it over 60 times, but haven't had much success.

During the 2016 presidential election, it became clear that while each Republican candidate had a different vision for the country, they were on the same page when it came to their opposition to the current health care law. Following the election of Donald Trump, and with Republicans in majority-control of both chambers in Congress, Obamacare's days appeared to be numbered. While Trump was unable to convince Republicans to rally around his proposed health care bill in its first attempt, the second time was the charm as it passed through the House of Representatives earlier this week. After backlash from Democrats, Kellyanne Conway appeared on the May 5 edition of "Hannity" on Fox News to discuss the issue at hand.

Joining Fox News host Eric Bolling, filling in for Sean Hannity, was Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway who was quick to deflect the blame for the new bill onto the Democrats.

Bolling played a montage of clips showing various Democratic politicians criticizing the GOP bill for putting American's lives a risk, but Conway wasn't impressed. Conway's opposition comes despite the fact that the Republican plan would eliminate tax credits for up to as many as seven million veterans due to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) being considered a pre-existing condition.

"The Democrats lost everything not nailed to the ground in three of the last four elections, mainly because of Obamacare," Kellyanne Conway said, before adding, "it's been a terrible political loser for them." After ripping into the more unpopular previsions of the Affordable Care Act, Conway then shifted blame for the GOP's bill hurting veterans.

Conway's blame game

"Where the hell were those Democrats, excuse me, when veterans were dying waiting for care?" Kellyanne Conway shouted. "Lets no pretend, and lets no forget that Democrats want people to forget and just scare them," she continued, in regards to Obamacare. While Conway and the White House continue to back up Donald Trump and his agenda, it appears that the fight over the future of health care is only going to get worse.
