Trump to Meet with Two Key Republicans Who Oppose Obamacare Replacement Plan

President Trump on Wednesday plans to meet with Reps. Billy Long, R-MO, and Fred Upton, R-MI, who have said they will not support the GOP Obamacare replacement plan.

Rep. Long told CNN that he and Upton will meet with the President and that the two are working on a new amendment to add to the replacement bill.

The two Republican lawmakers came out against the bill due to an amendment, introduced by Rep. Tom MacArtur, R-NH that would allow states to apply for waivers from some of the Affordable Care Act mandates.

Long talked about his opposition to the plan Monday, saying that the “MacArthur amendment strips away any guarantee that pre-existing conditions would be covered and affordable.”
