Despite the issue of Russian interference in the election, and the wiretapping conspiracy that has dominated the news cycle, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are also dealing with actual problems that impact the American people. As Republicans attempt to sell their new health care bill, President Donald Trump is sending out a warning to those who oppose it.

Trump's warning

For the better part of the last eight years, the Republican Party has made repealing the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, their number one priority. From the start, Republicans have clashed with Democrats over the issue of health care reform, blasting former President Barack Obama over the implementation of Obamacare from the day it was signed into law back in 2010.

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump vowed to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act, and with Republicans now in full control of Congress, it was only a matter of time before the GOP got the ball rolling. Despite this, the Republican health care alternative has not been well-received, with the Congressional Budget Office predicting that as many as 26 million Americans would lose coverage over the next decade if the bill was made law. As reported by Politico on March 21, Trump is sending a message to congressional Republicans that they get the bill passed as soon as possible.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump made his way to Capitol Hill to meet with a group of Republican lawmakers, with the focus being on the aforementioned GOP health care bill, known as the American Health Care Act.

During the meeting, Trump told those in attendance, "Many of you came in on the pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare. I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don’t get this done." At this point, the former host of "The Apprentice" singled out a Republican who has vowed not to support the bill.

Singled out

According to sources close to Politico, Donald Trump turned to Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows and threatened the congressman if he didn't change his mind, telling him, "I'm gonna come after you." While some believe the president was "half joking," it appeared as if it made for an uncomfortable situation by putting the focus of the entire room onto one individual over their opposition. Meadows spent time with Trump at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida last weekend, but the two couldn't find enough common ground on health care to switch his vote to a "Yes."
