Sean Spicer addresses Republican health care vote

Earlier in the week, Spicer repeatedly told reporters that on health care, there is no "Plan B".

Many Republicans argue that requiring insurers to cover those categories for all customers drives up the cost of premiums, as Katie Leslie explains for The Dallas Morning News.

"I feel really good, you know, so we're going to continue to work as late as we can to get the votes".

Shortly before the briefing began, House Speaker Paul Ryan held a meeting with President Trump at the White House amid multiple reports the legislation could ultimately be pulled from the floor. I think if you think about it legislatively. "The president understands this is it". "At the end of the day, you can't force people to vote". "Is the president humbled by the process?" He's worked really closely with the president.

Murray's question was pretty straight that merited an equally simple answer or, in case of Trump's representatives like Kellyanne Conway and Spicer himself, even a simple lie. "The middle class desperately wants and needs a tax break", Spicer said.

Price was a member of the Republican caucus in the House from 2005 to 2017, where he led the charge against Obamacare. In other words, based on this reporting, the bill had very little chance of success.

An aide to Price said that the secretary has leaned on his "long history of being a leader on health care issues in the House" and is "working with his colleagues on reform".

"I'm not going to comment on our strategy", Spicer said.

Trump met with 18 Republican House members at the White House yesterday, including some in the House Freedom Caucus who have opposed the Republican plan to replace Obamacare.
