Trump's remarks were a surprising critique of a Republican-written House measure whose passage he lobbied for and praised.
The House of Representatives narrowly approved its version of repeal last month, but Senate Republicans have been unable to coalesce around their own version of a bill, with moderates and conservatives pushing in different directions in meetings behind closed doors.
The New York Democrat cited critical comments Vice President Mike Pence, then an IN congressman, made after the 2010 health care law passed about the process used by Democrats.

That's exactly what they're planning to do now, and they will succeed unless the Senate - both Democrats and Republicans - feel an unprecedented swell of resistance against this truly evil legislation. "I learned more from you all in this conversation that there may have in fact have been something submitted to CBO, but if that's the case, I don't know what it is nor what it says". At the Capitol, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said Republicans were hard at work on their legislation, although he did not divulge any specifics about it.
At the start of the lunch, Trump said he wanted the Senate to pass a bill to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature domestic policy achievement "as soon as we can do it".
MacArthur's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's description of the bill MacArthur helped resuscitate.
