WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is reaching out to Democrats to see if they "want to do a great HealthCare Bill" after Republicans have failed so far to fulfill their yearslong promise to repeal and replace the Obama health law.

Trump tweeted on Saturday that he called Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Friday. The president says the Obama health law "is badly broken, big premiums. Who knows!"

There's no immediate word from Schumer about Trump's tweets.

The president has suggested that he'd be open to negotiating with Democrats on health care.

But there've been no clear signs of a compromise between Republicans who've wanted to scrap the Affordable Care Act since it became law in 2010, and Democrats who want to protect it.

Tough decisions loom for Dems on ObamaCare .
Congressional Democrats have to decide how badly they want an ObamaCare deal. Senate Republicans are open to renewing the insurer payments that President Trump canceled last week, but, in return, they want to expand a program that allows states to waive Affordable Care Act regulations.
