WASHINGTON adidas nmd r1 pas cher , July 31 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump is still pushing for a healthcare revamp, even though his bill -- considered a last-ditch effort to pass legislation -- failed in the Senate last Friday.
Despite years of promise that they would repeal and replace the 2010 healthcare law, known as Obamacare, Senate Republicans failed last week to pass a draft bill. That sparked the White House's wrath, but President Trump did not not give it up.
Trump "will not accept those who said, quote adidas nmd human race pas cher femme , 'it's time to move on,'" Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump's senior advisers, told conservative TV program Fox News on Sunday.
"If a new Health Care Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon," the president tweeted Monday in a bid to tighten the screws on the Republican Congress.
However adidas nmd human race pas cher , Trump's threats to the Congress may be futile, as the party simply does not have the votes to repeal Obamacare, despite the controversy the bill has elicited over the past years.
"It is too little, too late. Republicans don't have the votes for any significant repeal of Obamacare," Darrell West, the vice president and director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution adidas nmd city sock pas cher femme , told Xinhua.
"The Senate tried several different alternatives and none of them passed. The Senate Majority Leader has said it is time to move on to other issues so he isn't very optimistic that anything new can be achieved," West said.
"The only real option would be a bipartisan effort, but it would require Republicans to give up on a repeal of Obamacare and move to shoring up its financing. A number of Democrats are willing to do this, but it is not clear that many Republicans will join the effort," West said.
Critics say Obamacare is often unaffordable for many Americans, punishes them with fines for not opting into this expensive plan and props up insurance companies with taxpayer dollars.
Supporters say the plan has given millions of Americans access to health insurance adidas nmd city sock pas cher , who did not have it.
A principal reason for Republicans' disagreement on the healthcare reform is an internal split between moderates and conservatives, experts said.
On last week's bill, moderate Republicans said the legislation did not solve all the problems, while conservatives said they wanted every line gutted and claimed that this government overreach gave too much power to bureaucrats in Washington.
One major problem that conservatives have with Obamacare is that people far above the poverty line can get access to government-subsidized programs that previously were only for the poor. That will be no longer a heavy burden for taxpayers, critics said.
Now, there is a chance that the Trump administration and the Republicans could lose much credibility in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections.
Although with control of the White House and both chambers of Congress adidas nmd chukka pas cher femme , the GOP (nickname of the Republican Party) could lose that advantage if it does not fulfill its promises to enact meaningful legislation that supporters expect.
Republican strategist Ford O'Connell told Xinhua that last week's failure was not as much of a loss for the White House as it was for GOP lawmakers.
Repealing and replacing Obamacare "is a promise that they made seven years and four election cycles ago...This promise was made long before Donald Trump came along to be their nominee," he said.
O'Connell said that the Republican party would have had this problem regardless of which Republican sits in the White House.
"Voters are not going to blame Trump. They are going to blame the members of Congress who couldn't uphold their promises," he said.

HANGZHOU, Sept 25 (Xinhua)-- A video clip of Kobe Bryant trying to learn Chinese Internet slang has had hundreds of thousands of hits in the last two months.
The NBA star told Xinhua that he was learning Chinese to understand comments left by customers at his new Taobao store Kobe Inc. on Alibaba.
Bryant is just one of many overseas celebrities starting online businesses in China. Alibaba, the world's biggest shopping portal adidas nmd chukka pas cher , has recruited some 100,000 celebrities to promote products for some of its 10 million vendors across its two main sites, Taobao and TMall.
Calling his Taobao store "only a beginning," Bryant has plans for another store on TMALL. In the video, Bryant explains he intends not just to see his branded products, but to share his philosophy and stories to inspire people and make the world a better place.
"There are so many people starting e-commerce businesses and the competition is intense adidas nmd pas cher femme ," he said. "My team and I look at our sales figures every day, and so far, I can tell you, doing business in China is much easier than learning Chinese!"
In 2014, when Bryant was drawing up his business plan, he identified China as one place where he wanted to do well. He describes partnership between Kobe Inc. and Alibaba as a new and exciting chapter that will bring him closer to his millions of Chinese fans.
IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE
In June adidas nmd pas cher , Alibaba predicted that by 2020, China would be doing more business-to-customer deals than any other country.
Over the past year, American products have become much more widely available to Chinese competitors. Macy's, Costco, Apple and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals have set up shops with C.
