Trump: ‘Press every one of your congressmen’ on Obamacare repeal


Recognizing the need to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Trump hasn’t stopped looking for ways forward after the failure of Speaker Ryan’s bill.

President Trump on Tuesday asked voters to pressure their congressmen to support legislation to partially repeal and replace Obamacare, and said figuring out a healthcare bill is still key to tax reform.

“We’re also working with Congress on tax reform and simplification, and we’re on time if we get that healthcare approval,” he said in a speech in Kenosha, Wisconsin. “So press every one of your congressmen, press everybody, because we want to get that approval.”

“And it just makes the tax reform easier, and it makes it better, because it’s gonna make it steeper, it’s gonna be bigger, and that’s what we want to do,” Trump said.
