The House is set to take up a measure to block the repeal of the Affordable Care Act from becoming law.
The measure would require that a repeal vote be held in the Senate to be considered, and that any amendment be passed in the House before it can go to the president for his signature.
If passed, the measure would block the GOP-led House from voting on the bill until a repeal is enacted.
The move would allow President Donald Trump to bypass a congressional veto to move ahead with his signature on a repeal bill.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is set on Thursday to unveil his amendment, which he has said is “consistent with our core values.”
In a statement, McConnell said the amendment “gives Congress an opportunity to advance a legislative agenda to stabilize the health care system while ensuring coverage for Americans with pre-existing conditions.”
McConnell said his amendment is “an appropriate compromise” to allow a vote on a final repeal bill without a Democratic filibuster.
The Senate voted last month to repeal the Affordable Act, or Obamacare, but it was blocked in the GOP’s failed attempt to repeal and replace the 2010 Affordable Care Acts.
Trump’s decision to delay action on repealing the law was criticized by some conservatives and Republicans.
A group of conservatives called the American Action Network launched a website, Keep Your Promise, which asked supporters to contact their senators and ask them to oppose the measure.
The group said in a statement that “every member of Congress has the responsibility to hold the president accountable for the actions he takes to keep America’s health care plan and promises for future generations.”
The White House said Trump is “committed to continuing to fight for our country’s health plan.” “
We call on senators to join with our allies and allies in the Democratic caucus to fight this bill in the senate, and we call on our Republican friends to oppose this bill as well.”
The White House said Trump is “committed to continuing to fight for our country’s health plan.”
“We will continue to put forward strong health care solutions to keep Americans healthy and the American economy running smoothly, while continuing to provide for the American people,” the White House statement said.
The House approved a measure last week to delay the implementation of a healthcare law that was signed into law in 2010, the ACA.
The Republican-led Senate had earlier voted to repeal part of the ACA, but a vote to repeal parts of the law could be needed to move forward on a replacement that would cover more people and address the nation’s rising healthcare costs.
The AHCA has become a flashpoint between Trump and Senate Democrats, with Democrats claiming that the president is trying to dismantle the law in the hopes of making it more difficult for people to obtain insurance coverage.
