Donald Trump campaigned on the promise of repealing and replacing the disastrous Affordable Care Act.
Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress appear to be a little tentative about making that promise a reality.
It sounds like we will find out more this week…
From Hot Air:
The Republican Party’s long-awaited plan to undo ObamaCare will finally emerge this week, according to Reuters. Two months into the new session of Congress and their first real opportunity to make good on promises to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the legislative language will get published for debate in the House and Senate. An agreement between Capitol Hill and the White House on the finer points of the plan makes this possible now, Reuters reports:
Republican U.S. lawmakers expect to unveil this week the text of long-awaited legislation to repeal and replace the Obamacare healthcare law, one of President Donald Trump’s top legislative priorities, a senior Republican congressional aide said on Sunday. …
The aide cited progress in meetings and phone calls starting on Friday and lasting through the weekend involving House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney, Trump domestic policy adviser Andrew Bremberg and others.
Americans who have been hurt by Obamacare have been waiting years for this moment.
It is unclear as of right now whether or not the GOP has what it takes to get this done the right way.
