Trump scrambles GOP's healthcare plans
At The Hill by Peter Sullivan --
President-elect Donald Trump is upending the GOP’s plans on ObamaCare.
Trump over the weekend said the ObamaCare replacement plan should cover everyone, a pledge that congressional Republicans have repeatedly declined to make.
The remark came just a few days after Trump said at a press conference that his administration would put forward its own replacement plan for ObamaCare, an announcement that seemed to catch lawmakers by surprise.
At the same press conference, Trump said Congress should repeal and replace ObamaCare simultaneously, shooting down talk that Republicans might delay the replacement plan to a later date.
