President Donald Trump continued to pin the failures of raising healthcare premiums on his opponents via a Sunday morning tweet — "the Dems own it" — before adding a vow to "repeal & replace" Obamacare "soon after tax cuts."

The failure to make good on his No. 1 campaign promise of reforming the ills and rising costs of U.S. healthcare has been a smudge on President Trump's administration, but it has turned focus to passing the "biggest [tax] cuts ever in the history of this country."

Congress hopes to pass the Trump-led tax reform before year's end after the Senate has failed on numerous occasions to pass a repeal or a replacement of Obamacare this summer. The Senate, holding a narrow 52-48 Republican majority cannot lose more than two GOP senators in the vote, needing to get to 50 with Vice President Mike Pence's tiebreaker under budget reconciliation.

Both the Senate and the House have passed a budget measure that will allow tax reform to be enacted by a simple majority in Congress and avoid a filibuster by Democrats.
