GOP Makes Last Gasp Push to Repeal Obamacare

Updated on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged Republican senators to support a last-ditch proposal to repeal Obamacare after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refused to promise a vote on the measure.

“I hope Republican Senators will vote for Graham-Cassidy and fulfill their promise to Repeal & Replace ObamaCare. Money direct to States!” Trump tweeted. He also knocked Senator Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, for holding out on the plan, authored by colleagues Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.
