Senate Democrats are pressing President Trump to drop the GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare and work with them to fix it.

Forty-four Democratic senators signed a letter to Trump, sent Wednesday, stating that they "remain ready and willing to work with him."

"We respectfully request that you abandon your efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and undermine the U.S. health care system so that we can work together to improve the law and lower the cost of health care for all Americans," they wrote.


Wednesday's letter comes at a time when some House Republicans are eyeing a second run at their legislation to nix the Obama-era law, though Senate GOP leadership is signaling they want to move on to other policy fights, including the Supreme Court and funding the government.

Democrats added in their letter that Trump "must commit to putting an end to all efforts to unravel the ACA" including repealing a January executive order.

Trump signed an executive order earlier this year that allowed federal agencies to use regulations to try to unwind some of the Affordable Care Act.
