Donald Trump pushes House Republicans to support healthcare billBy Darlene Powers Mar 25, 2017
The original House proposal called to restore the floor to 7.5% but the revised proposal would drop the floor even further: 5.8%.
Local Republican Congressman Tim Murphy tells the "KDKA Morning News" the president told the House GOP to keep their promise to replace Obamacare because that is what many campaigned on. If the Republican bill is passed, millions of voters might lose their healthcare coverage.

Freedom Caucus founding member Raul Labrador declined to talk about how many members are committed to voting against the bill but said the votes are not there for the bill to pass and suggested leadership not bring it up for a vote Thursday as planned.
