Trump in tweets: ‘New healthcare plan is on its way’

President Donald Trump isn’t giving up on a new plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

In Sunday morning tweets, Trump said a new health care plan is on its way, adding: “Obamacare is dead.”

“You can’t compare anything to ObamaCare because ObamaCare is dead. Dems want billions to go to Insurance Companies to bail out donors….New…healthcare plan is on its way. Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions,” the president wrote.

Congress has yet to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, something Trump promised during the campaign that he would do on day one. Saturday marked his 100th day in office.

Last week, Trump tried to push for a vote on a new plan, which got a blessing from the House Freedom Caucus, but is still short votes from other GOP members. Republicans control the House, but don’t seem to have enough votes in their own caucus to pass a particular plan.
