Trump Pressures Republicans: You Either Side With Obamacare Architects or With Their Victims

Speaking from the White House Monday and flanked by Obamacare victims, President Donald Trump continued pressuring Republicans to vote on legislation repealing and replacing the government healthcare law. 

"The question for every Senator, Democrat and Republican, is whether they will side with ObamaCare's architects, which have been so destructive to our country, or with its forgotten victims," Trump said. "Now is the time for action." 

The Senate version of Obamacare repeal and replace, The Better Care Act, failed to reach a vote last week. Straight repeal on a 2015 bill also failed to gain enough votes to make it to the floor. 

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is attempting to get a vote on something, anything this week. This means Senators don't know what piece of legislation, if any, they'll be voting on.
