President Donald Trump unleashed a blistering critique of the Affordable Care Act and ratcheted up the pressure on Senate Republicans to keep their campaign promise to repeal and replace the law.
Speaking on the eve of a critical Senate vote, Trump drew on the struggles of Americans who joined him at the White House to remind Republicans of their longstanding promise.
"So far, Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare,” Trump said. “They now have a chance, however, to hopefully -- hopefully -- fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time.”
The plan is for the Senate to take a major procedural vote on Tuesday to advance a health care bill, said the No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn.
What exactly lawmakers will ultimately be voting for, however, remains unclear.
When asked what leadership ultimately wants the bill to be, Cornyn said: "We're not quite there yet." Ref. CNN.
