Trump says ObamaCare replacement should come quickly

But Senate Republicans said Tuesday talks are underway with the incoming Trump administration and the House to find an alternative. Sen.

Republicans will work on unraveling and replacing the health care law at the same time, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday as GOP leaders struggled to align their zeal to rapidly erase one of President Barack Obama's proudest achievements with Congress' legislative and political pitfalls.

The Senate planned to work through the night Wednesday to take the first real step toward repealing Obamacare - a top goal of congressional Republicans and President-elect Donald Trump.

"Long to me would be weeks", he said, adding "the replace will be very quickly or simultaneously, very shortly thereafter".

Democrats' insistence on "fixing" everything they thought wrong in American health care in one giant bill is a key reason the ObamaCare law was such a disastrous kludge.

Ryan's team is whipping support for the fiscal 2017 budget resolution that includes reconciliation instructions in anticipation of a Friday vote.

Insurance premiums are going up in most states, and some insurance companies have bailed out of the exchanges, claiming they're losing money. "They can not live with it, and they have to go together". "It won't be repeal and then two years later go in with another plan".
