Conservatives aren’t too pleased with the Obamacare replacement that was revealed recently.
Donald Trump and Paul Ryan have assured them that this replacement will come in phases due to some senate procedure obstacles.
Apparently, Donald Trump confirmed behind closed doors that the second bill could come as early as next week.
From Washington Examiner:
President Trump told a closed-door meeting of grassroots conservative leaders on Wednesday to expect another, companion healthcare bill to hit the House as early as next week, according to sources present for the meeting.
The new legislation would differ from the plan presently working its way through the House in that it would not proceed through budget reconciliation and would therefore require cloture in the Senate. Because Republicans intend to pass the healthcare bill introduced this week using budgetary procedures, they will only need a simple majority to shepherd it through the Senate, where the new piece of healthcare legislation would need at least 60 votes to survive.
Maybe a little too early to speculate on everything that will be involved in this process.
Does this make you feel a little better about the first bill?
