President Donald Trump reportedly warned Republican members of the House of Representatives that their time in Congress could be in jeopardy if they do not support the American Health Care Act.
Speaking to the House GOP conference on Tuesday, Trump reportedly said that he "believe(s) many of you will lose in 2018" if healthcare reform is not passed soon. Trump implied that opposing the AHCA would be a career-killer.
Conversely, Trump also reportedly said that Republicans would gain 10 Senate seats if healthcare reform and tax reform are both passed.
Rep. Chris Collins says Trump told Rs they'll "gain 10 seats in the Senate" if they pass AHCA and tax reform.— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) March 21, 2017
