President Trump on Tuesday promised Congress will be voting on a new health care bill immediately after the 2020 election.
“I will be asking that this be my first vote immediately after the election. We are going to regain the House because of health care and other things,” Trump said at a National Republican Congressional Committee dinner .
“We’re going to come up with a health care plan. We’re not going to vote on it until after the election, we’ll all promise it’s going to be our first vote. Because we blew it. Man, I was fed a bill of goods, I want to tell you. Some of you I’m still a little angry, but not all of you.”
The president also vowed that any plan would keep safeguards for patients with preexisting conditions, which consistently polls as Obamacare’s most popular aspect.
“We have to protect and cannot run away from a thing called preexisting conditions. We can’t do it, you’re going to get clobbered,” he said. “The Republican Party will be the champion of preexisting conditions. You have to do it.”
