Last-ditch effort for new health law
WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump is rallying support for the Republican health care overhaul by taking his case to Republican lawmakers at the Capitol, two days before the House plans a climactic vote that poses an important early test for his presidency. Top House Republicans unveiled revisions to their bill in hopes of nailing down support.
On Monday in Kentucky, Trump underscored what he called “the crucial House vote”.
“This is our long-awaited chance to finally get rid of Obamacare,” he said of repealing former President Barack Obama’s landmark law.
Trump’s meeting with House Republicans was coming as party leaders released 43 pages worth of changes to a bill whose prospects remain dicey. AP
