Republicans May Take Another Shot At Obamacare Repeal

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

31 March 2017


Republicans are discussing how to revive the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and return it to the House of Representatives for approval.

The bill, which would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and many of its taxes, was withdrawn by House Speaker Paul Ryan just half an hour before a vote on March 24, admitting a lack of support.

When asked if there was a possibility of returning the AHCA for a vote, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R - CA) recently said, "Yes. As soon as we figure it out and get the votes."

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was also questioned on the matter. He said, what "the President has put out there is that if people want to float ideas and suggestions, on how we can grow this vote and get to a majority, he'll entertain them."

Following the withdrawal of AHCA, Trump had indicated that he would leave health care to focus on tax reform.
