Washington, March 10 – President Donald Trump met with the House chairmen and women whose committees are aiding the drive to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Trump thanked the leaders for their devotion, leadership and diligent work in shepherding Republican health care legislation through their panels.

Both the Ways and Means Committee and the Energy and Commerce Committee cleared the legislation earlier this week.

Trump reiterated at the White House meeting that action is needed “now” to save consumers from what he says is the coming “Obamacare disaster.”

Vice President Mike Pence attended the meeting, along with Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, the Ways and Means Committee chairman, and Rep. Greg Walden of Washington, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
