Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama delivered a mandate to Democrats on Wednesday: "Don't rescue" Republicans on Obamacare. Less than three weeks out from leaving the White House, Obama visited Democratic lawmakers on Capitol Hill with a mission to save his signature healthcare reform law as Republicans are moving quickly to unroll the Affordable Care Act.
In the closed-door meeting, the President urged fellow Democrats to not "rescue" Republicans by helping them pass replacement measures, according to sources in the room. He also floated this idea: Start referring to the GOP's new plan as "Trumpcare." The suggestion was a clear indication of the Democratic Party's goal of turning the tables on Republicans, who are already facing pressure to quickly craft a replacement bill.

Obunga begins the process of making a complete joke of himself.
Obviously, his legacy is far more important than the well being of The American People, as if that was ever in doubt.
“Obunga begins the process of making a complete joke of himself.”
Begins? This is his final act.
What a child.
I nailed it! I told you folks the Dems were going to do this.

They’re all up for re-election in two years, Barky.
“President urged fellow Democrats to not “rescue” Republicans by helping them pass replacement measures, according to sources in the room.”
Help Republicans. To help or hurt Republicans on this issue, Democrats are as useless as teats on a boar hog.
Did he advise the DemocRATs to tell the Republicans not to call their bluff?
What ever happened to the concept of doing what’s best for the country?
Democrats are as necessary as teats on a boar hog.
I hate this spiteful evil man. Unfortunately we will probably see even more of him after January 21st than we do now.
Bammy is such a nutball. A Wackobird. Extremist partisan.
This is why you have to outright repeal it then replace it, because they will fight you every step of the way.
TrumpCare...I like the sound of that. It is going to be huge.
Did anyone expect it to be otherwise? Republicans refused to help with Obamacare. What incentive to the Democrats have to help with whatever the Republicans replace it with?
If I recall correctly, not one Republican voted for OdumboCare so it’s got nowhere else to go but up.
