Obamacare Is Going Away Sooner Than Later (VIDEO)

It looks like Obamacare will soon be a thing of the past.

White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn says he believes the Republicans now have enough votes to pass a bill that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Politico reports:

White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn said Monday that he and other members of President Donald Trump’s administration are “convinced we’ve got the votes” in Congress to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare this week.

A bill undoing former President Barack Obama’s signature health care legislation would be a major victory for Trump, made sweeter perhaps because a previous attempt failed to pass even the Republican-controlled House last March. Such legislation would be a campaign promise kept by Trump just outside of his benchmark 100th day in office.

“Do we have the votes for health care? I think we do. This is going be a great week,” Cohn said on “CBS This Morning,” which was broadcast live on Monday from the White House’s East Room. “We’re going to get health care down to the floor of the House. We’re convinced we’ve got the votes, and we’re going to keep moving on with our agenda.”

President Donald Trump says the change is coming very soon.

It was only a matter of time before the Republicans got to work on another bill that would end Former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law.  The last time they tried, the bill never came to a vote because the party’s leadership wasn’t convinced they had enough votes to get it passed.

It seems like the White House is confident that will not be the case this time around.
