Tump’s ultimatum: Pass health care bill or Obamacare stays
NYPOST by Marla Schultz --
President Trump issued an ultimatum to Congress on Thursday night — pass the GOP heath care bill by Friday or he will leave Obamacare as it is and work on other issues, sources said.
The the Commander in Chief’s stern demand came after a chaotic day on Capitol Hill, in which Republican leaders were forced to postpone a vote on their ObamaCare replacement plan until Friday for fear it did not have the support to pass.
As it became clear the signature proposal was in danger, Trump doubled down by telling Congress that the time for negotiation over.
“The president said tomorrow there will be a vote,” Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) told The Post.
