White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer addressed President Donald Trump’s weekend promises of a new health care plan in his Monday news briefing.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer is tamping down expectations on passing a Republican-led health care bill through the House.
Spicer says, “we’re not there yet,” but adds that the Trump administration is “getting closer and closer every day.”
Spicer is declining to offer a timeline of when the House might vote on the bill to repeal and replace the health care law approved under former President Barack Obama. But he says the White House is confident about the direction of the bill.
Spicer says the decision of when to move the bill to the floor will be made by House Speaker Paul Ryan.
The House could consider the health care bill later this week.
