Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff , expressed confidence that the just-passed House health care bill will make it through the Senate.
Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Priebus said that the Senate is expected to change the bill to make it better, and that the Republican Senators were fully committed in repealing and replacing Obamacare, as soon as possible.
Still it’s expected that several months will be needed for the Senate to consider the legislation.
“The fact of the matter is there are some times in life you have to do what is right, not what’s politically expedient,” Priebus said. “We believe that it will be a better product and, by the time the people see the premiums are lower, a better service, more options, more choices, they will reward the Republicans that stood up and said ‘We are not going to see the Obamacare system, which is failing and collapsing, continue any longer.'”
“President Trump made it happen,” Priebus added, “which should show every American how committed he is to making sure that if you have a pre-existing condition, this president is not going to let you down.”
