US President Donald Trump is set to launch another effort to roll back Obamacare. Reports say, he will seek Congressional approval for a new healthcare bill before he marks 100 days in office on the 29th of this month.
Trump and Congressional Republicans suffered a major defeat last month when they were forced to withdraw a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The legislation was opposed by Democrats and hardline conservatives of the Republican Party.
Trump suggested at the time that he would shift his priorities to tax reforms and other policies. But the President now appears poised to seek Congressional approval for a revised healthcare bill. He told reporters that he is not giving up, and that his plan is getting better and better.
US media say the White House is pressing Republican leaders to get the bill ready for a quick vote. But the reports say it remains unclear whether the legislation will win the support it needs in Congress.
