White House prefers people not call new health care plan 'Trumpcare'

On Monday, Republicans released their proposed replacement for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, reports the New York Times.

Soon after, many took to calling the GOP plan 'Trumpcare.'

It appears health secretary Tom Price would prefer people not do that.

Republican reactions to the American Health Care Act

During a Tuesday press briefing he was asked how the administration feels about the new plan's nickname.

Price responded, "I prefer to call it 'Patient Care.' This is about patients at the end of the day."

The White House press secretary Sean Spicer fielded similar questions.

When asked, "Is this Trumpcare?" he replied, "...we are less concerned with labels and more in terms of action and results."

One person already forging ahead with the moniker is Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

His comments on the plan thus far include, "Trumpcare will make health insurance in America measurably worse in just about every way and likely leave more Americans uninsured," and, "With respect to women, Trumpcare would send us back to the Dark Ages."
