The vote to repeal Obamacare will take place this week, the House Republican leadership has announced after meeting with President Donald Trump, seeking to dispel rumors of opposition within the ranks and brushing off criticism from Democrats.

“Seven years of this failed experiment is enough,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) announced on Tuesday, telling reporters that the Trump administration and the GOP are “all in” on repealing and replacing the previous administration’s sweeping healthcare mandate.

Trump met with the House Republicans on Tuesday and told them that failing to pass the healthcare reform could cost many of them their seats in the 2018 midterm election, The Hill reported, citing a source inside the meeting who wished to remain anonymous.

Trump was there “to do what he does best, and that is to close the deal,” Ryan said afterward.
