Trump Makes Major Announcement About HealthCare that Obama Never Could!

President Donald Trump announced, on Sunday, that Americans with pre-existing medical conditions will be covered under Republicans’ new ObamaCare overhaul, as House GOP leaders try to pass the HealthCare measure as early as this week.

“Health care plan is on its way,” Trump tweeted. “Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions!”

Trump’s tweet came several hours after he told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that the measure has a clause that “guarantees” people with pre-existing conditions will be covered and that it will lower the cost of ObamaCare insurance premiums.

House Republicans’ first overhaul attempt failed dramatically last month, with Ryan scrapping the vote at the last minute amid flagging support.

Ryan would need 217 yes votes from the chamber’s 238 Republicans, with about 17 purportedly in opposition. (No Democrats have supported the effort to repeal former President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.)

An amendment last week by New Jersey GOP Rep. Tom McArthur appeared to be a breakthrough in garnering support from moderate House Republicans and members of the chamber’s ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus.

However, no vote was scheduled.

Still, Trump appears intent upon fulfilling a major campaign promise to overhaul ObamaCare, struggling under rising premium costs while offering customers fewer insurance coverage options.

“We’re going to get this damn thing passed quickly,” Trump said Saturday night at a rally in Harrisburg, Pa.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on “Fox News Sunday” dismissed Trump’s arguments that Democrats have blocked efforts to fix ObamaCare, arguing the president’s GOP-controlled House doesn’t need Democratic votes to pass an overhaul measure.

“He couldn’t do it, twice,” said the New York Democrat, while saying that his party will work with Trump to improve ObamaCare if Republicans “back off” a full repeal of the 2010 health care law.
