President TrumpDonald TrumpSanders: Reinstating SALT deduction 'sends a terrible, terrible message' GOP braces for wild week with momentous vote One quick asylum fix: How Garland can help domestic violence survivors MORE ripped into ObamaCare on Twitter on Monday, calling the health insurance bill a “disaster” that will experience its “worst year yet" in 2017.

Trump's tweet also promised that Republicans will "come together and save the day" — a call for unity that comes as the House GOP's ObamaCare repeal-and-replace plan faces increasing pressure from others within the party.

Trump doubled down on his ObamaCare criticisms earlier this month, repeatedly saying it is “imploding."


The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is expected to release a widely anticipated report on the GOP plan's costs and effect on the insurance market sometime this week. The CBO score is widely expected to be negative for the legislation.

Despite the push, many conservative lawmakers and affiliated groups have been largely critical of the ObamaCare repeal-and-replace proposal. Some suggest the plan is not yet ready to be voted on, while other Republicans say this plan does not do enough to fully repeal ObamaCare.
