Concerns over Trumpcare, ongoing divisions in Congress

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA — It is now day 173 of Donald Trump’s presidency, and Trumpcare — the Republican replacement for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare — seems to be on the brink of another flat-line, without the number of votes to get it passed in the Senate.

Republicans remain divided over details and costs of their proposed American Health Care Act.

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he will delay the Senate’s august recess to work on the bill.

In 140 characters, the president pressed Congress by tweeting Monday that he “cannot imagine that Congress would dare leave Washington without a beautiful new healthcare bill, fully approved and ready to go.”

Meanwhile, anti-Trumpcare protests erupted in Senate offices.


In Virginia Beach, some Filipinos expressed their feelings about the Obamacare replacement, and the ongoing back-and-forth in Congress.
