The GOP-led House and Senate are pushing Trump’s tax reform bill through the lower chamber as a means of overhauling the Affordable Healthcare Act.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) are leading the push, according to two Republican lawmakers familiar with the matter.
The bill, called the American Health Care Act, is expected to pass the Senate and then become law as a major legislative vehicle.
The effort has been led by Republicans, who are hoping to get as much support as possible from President Donald Trump, who is facing a major health care crisis and a growing public distrust of the Republican Party.
Trump is facing pressure from the public and lawmakers to push the bill through Congress, a move that is opposed by many Democrats and many Republicans.
But Brady and Wyden have made it clear they are pushing the bill as a political football.
The legislation would overhaul the ACA and would provide tax relief to individuals and businesses.
It would also expand Medicaid coverage and increase taxes on the rich.
The plan would allow states to choose to expand Medicaid or reduce funding, which is one of the most popular provisions in the ACA.
The ACA was passed in 2010 and has been in place for eight years.
The Trump administration has repeatedly criticized the legislation, which was passed after a divisive election that left more than 80 million Americans without health coverage.
The president has said that he wants to make health care more affordable and provides tax relief for those who earn less than $250,000 per year.
Trump has also said that if he’s reelected, he would make a health care overhaul a top priority.
The AHCA, which could be formally unveiled next week, is the most significant overhaul of the ACA in the past decade.
The Senate is expected on Wednesday to vote on the bill, which would also repeal the Affordable Children’s Health Insurance Program and establish a $50,000 cap on the amount of tax deductions that individuals can take for their health care expenses.
The House and the Senate would vote on an identical bill, known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, before the end of the year.
