HEALTHCARE/OBAMACARE(ACA)/POLITICS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump on Tuesday [3-21-17] threatened political fallout if House Republicans do not pass the American Health Care Act, the GOP leadership’s bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
During a meeting with Republican lawmakers in the House, Trump said that if the AHCA does not pass, some Republicans will lose in the next election.
‘I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don’t get this done,’ trump told House members according to Politico’s John Bresnahan. The comment was also confirmed by CNN’s Phil Mattingly.
Nearly all recent polls have showed more Americans lining up against the AHCA than supporting it, however.”
