The Trump administration and GOP leaders are taking the full-court press for their healthcare plan on the Sunday show circuit this week, pitching their plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price is slated to appear ABC’s "This Week" as well as CNN’s "State of the Union." The White House has said that it will support the GOP bill despite harsh criticism from the Democrats and some conservatives.

President Trump's budget will also be hot topic this weekend, with White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” and NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
The president's ambitious budget blueprint seeks to dramatically reduce the size of government by eliminating some 19 federal agencies.
The budget plan was harshly criticized by the Democrats who will be eager to build a formidable opposition to the president's proposal.
