Republicans are struggling to repeal Obamacare as promised by President Trump and are therefore asking him to help congress find some common ground.
Representative Dennis Ross of Florida said, "He's the leader on this issue right now; he's the one that's got to hold us together." He also urged Republicans to "'stay strong on the issue" and that, "now is not the time to back down."
Representative Bill Flores from Texas was quoted saying, "What the president can say is that the plan that gets presented to the conference is the one you need to vote 'yes' on...that's how he can be helpful."
The main issue at the moment regarding healthcare reform is that the staunch conservatives are opposed to the new tax credits proposed with the claim that they would help Americans better afford health care. The main argument is that this type of tax credit is extremely costly with long-term unknown variables/ramifications. They also feel that the bill would actually only cover less individuals than the current Affordable Healthcare Act does.
Three of the ring leaders you could say that are strongly opposing any kind of a light reform are Senators: Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah. They made it clear that they will not tolerate anything less than a full repeal of Obamacare!
This particular issue comes only a month into President Trump's leadership. Unfortunately the majority of Republicans are facing internal struggle within their own party to finally do what they have been fighting/pledging to do all along (which is to replace the Affordable Healthcare Act with something better).
House Speaker Paul Ryan is faithful and believes at the end of the day everything is going to work out! he said, "You're going to have a lot of churning on any kind of legislative product like this. This is a plan that we are all working on together, the House, the Senate and the White House, so there aren't rival plans. I feel at the end of the day when we get everything done and right, we're going to be unified."
