The healthcare debate is not over; lawmakers promise change is coming
By Admin | April 10, 2017
Despite the healthcare bill known as TrumpCare being pulled before a Congressional vote, House Republicans promise that a new bill will appear in its place.
President Trump, in the meantime, said he would move onto other issues, like tax reform, tabling healthcare reform for now.
The bill was pulled before a vote due to lack of support. No Democrats were going to vote for it, and not enough Republicans agreed with the provisions within the bill, in particular reducing the cost of healthcare.
In response to press and public reaction to the bill and its failure, President Trump responded via Twitter.
“ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE," the president tweeted. "Do not worry!”
