The more aggressive American Health Care Act of 2017 that passed the House in May would cause 23 million people to lose health insurance.

Thats what most people say Congress and the Trump administration should do after the Senate failed to approve legislation in July to revamp the Affordable Care Act, according to a survey this month.

The poll, from the Kaiser Family Foundation, found that moving forward, 60 percent of the public believes that "Trump and Republicans in Congress are responsible for any problems with the ACA".

Trump is, very likely, aware of three things when it comes to the Republican Party.

And by almost 2-to-1, most say it's good that the Senate rejected the GOP repeal-and-replace bill last month.

So there you have it: Republicans have offered up four takes on repeal and replace and none of them increase the number of insured Americans or keep the same numbers as Obamacare.

Trump has been publicly browbeating Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to continue trying to pass legislation tearing down Obama's 2010 overhaul. Half favor the law vs. 46% who oppose it.

Just 21 percent of respondents — but 49 percent of Republicans — want the GOP to continue working on a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, the survey said.

A large majority of the public disapproves of Trump's suggestion that Republicans "let Obamacare implode" and move on to other policy priorities - 78% of those polled said Trump should do what he can to make the law work.

Donald Trump's threat to sabotage Obamacare would generate a huge backlash for him and Republicans, according to a new poll. Most Republicans (58%) and Trump supporters (59%) support these hardball negotiating tactics.

Nearly 6 in 10 people think the Republicans should work with Democrats to improve the health law.

Trump has frequently tried pressuring Democrats to negotiate on health care by threatening to halt federal subsidies to insurers.

The companies use the money to trim out-of-pocket costs for deductibles and copayments for around 7 million low- and middle-income people. Favorable views have increased 9 percentage points since the 2016 presidential election, with the trend occurring among Democrats, independents, and Republicans.

The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll was conducted August 1-6 and involved random calls to the cellphones and landlines of 1,211 adults. The survey was conducted August 1-6, 2017, among a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,211 adults ages 18 and older, living in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii (note: persons without a telephone could not be included in the random selection process).
