WH looking to revive Obamacare repeal before 100-day deadline

If President Trump follows through with his suggestion that he might withhold subsidy payments to insurers as a way to force Democrats to the negotiating table, the move might have little effect on his political opponents but push struggling health plans out of the ACA marketplace.

House Republicans working on a deal to overhaul the nation's health care system have come up with a set of bullet points aimed at bridging differences between GOP factions and restarting the attempt to pass legislation that would replace the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. It's just a total trust gap.

A poll by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center showed that by 54 percent to 35 percent, more people think Democrats do a better job than Republicans handling health care.

That may make it hard to get a majority vote in the House Republican caucus, he says.

On Tuesday while in Wisconsin, Trump said he was confident about the chances of Congress passing a health bill soon, reports CNN.


"We'd all like to have it done by then, but not sure that's feasible", another GOP source close to the process said.

Talks among White House officials and GOP lawmakers have continued during the break, but there have been no tangible signs that they've found a way to reverse what has been a damaging defeat for President Donald Trump and congressional leaders. But we need to manage expectations. But Congress has a more pressing concern as members return to Capitol Hill - approving a continuing resolution to avoid a government shutdown and keep the government running.

But Congress faces another looming deadline by April 28: funding the federal government.

The $3 million campaign comes during a two-week congressional recess in which GOP lawmakers' town hall meetings have been rocked by liberal supporters of Obama's 2010 statute.
