President Trump and the White House are back at it with another push to repeal and replace Obamacare.
According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the plan would eliminate coverage for 24 million Americans. It was criticized by Democrats and Moderate Republicans for reducing coverage and by conservatives in the Freedom Caucus for being too similar to Obamacare itself.
Now, the White House believes amendments made to the bill will result in additional support from the Freedom Caucus, without addressing concerns from Democrats.

In a stunning turn of events, Jason Chaffetz, the powerful House Republican, declared today he won’t run for reelection in 2018.
Dr. Allen’s campaign has seen an uptick in donations since the announcement.
The record-breaking fundraising came after a town hall held by Chaffetz which Dr. Allen attended, and his comments that poor Americans should focus on paying for healthcare instead of purchasing “that new iPhone”.
Republicans voters in Provo, Utah have also been raising funds to draft Provo Mayor John Curtis to run against Chaffetz as a moderate alternative.
Meanwhile, Utahns in Chaffetz’s district have raised over $13,000 to put billboards in his backyard demanding he investigate the Trump-Russia connection.
