Earlier this week, the Republican Party finally announced their health care replacement bill. While President Donald Trump has given the bill his full support, many have lashed out, with Kellyanne Conway doing her best to fight off the president being linked to the replacement by name.

Conway cares

For nearly his entire eight years in the White House, former President Barack Obama came under fire from Republicans and the right-wing media for signing into law the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as simply "Obamacare." While far from perfect, Obamacare helped lower the uninsured rate in the United States, and included previsions that remain popular today, including not denying people with a preexisting condition, and allowing children to stay under the parent's health insurance until they are 26-years-old.

However, Republicans have argued that Obamacare has only given the government more power, while putting a strain on the middle class, who are too often used to help subsidize health insurance for low-income Americans. These issues were discussed during the March 8 edition of "American Newsroom" on Fox News.

Joining Fox News host Bill Hemmer was Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway, who didn't seem too pleased that the new health care replacement was being labeled as "TrumpCare." "This is a piece of legislation also that has presidential leadership," Conway said, before adding, "he's really husbanding this through." "The president and vice president are all-in here," she continued, while noting, "they are working on this more than anything day-by-day."

Bill Hemmer then asked how she felt about the bill being labeled "TrumpCare," and Kellyanne Conway responded accordingly.

"It's the American Health Care Act, and I think it's aptly named that for that reason," Conway shot back, explaining that the bill was designed to cover "everybody," stating, "that didn't happen under Obamacare." "I'll call it 'TrumpCare' if you want to, but I didn't hear President Trump say to any of us: 'I want my name on that,'" she said.

"It's not about branding according to someone's name," Conway stated, while labeling the bill "serious business."

Moving forward

While Donald Trump, his team, and Republican leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan have praised the new health care replacement, many are not happy with the details. In addition to expected criticism from Democrats and more liberal pundits, Republican Sen.

Rand Paul referred to the bill as "Obamacare lite," which he doesn't believe will pass the Senate. In addition, Fox News host Shepard Smith gave his feedback, and criticized House Republicans for rushing the roll-out without even knowing how many people will lose their health insurance in the process.
