GOP Making Moves
With Trump soon to move into the White House, it is time for the GOP to start making the necessary changes. Recently, the ObamaCare Act has been long-term promised to be repealed. According to the Washington Post, there is no sign of the creation of a new health care act as of yet. However, Barack Obama is not happy with this change. He encouraged other Democrats to not give support to the GOP with plans of a new health care act. During a House GOP meeting, it was made clear that the start of Trump’s presidency will be spent reversing executive actions made by Obama. More changes are soon to come once Trump sets foot in office.
