Trump Declares 'ObamaCare Is Dead,' Says He Backs GOP Plan '100 Percent'
President Donald Trump met with conservative Republican lawmakers at the White House today, declaring that "ObamaCare is dead" and reiterating his support for the American Health Care Act.
Trump spoke before the Republican Study Committee, a caucus of conservative lawmakers, many of whom were opposed to the House GOP's ObamaCare replacement plan.
The president claimed everyone in the room was convinced to support the bill after "certain changes" were made.
The legislation is expected to move through the House next week. Trump then lambasted the Affordable Care Act, saying it's "going to implode" unless it receives massive subsidies.
"Only because everyone knows it's on its last legs, the fake news is trying to say good things about it," he said.
Trump said in Tennessee, where he held a rally this week, half the state has no insurance company and the other half will lose their insurance company.
