President Trump to Republicans: Vote for Obamacare repeal or lose your seat

In this fourth appearance on Capitol Hill since assuming the presidency, President Trump spoke directly with Republicans on Tuesday morning who have been on the fence in supporting the GOP's American Health Care Act -- reportedly telling them to get on board with the Obamacare replacement or lose their seat.

"We have a chance to do something fantastic, to do something amazing," Trump told the lawmakers, according to Politico who sources people in the room. "I'm asking for your vote on Thursday. I honestly think many of you will lose your seats in 2018 if you don't get this done."

Both Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and OMB Director Mick Mulvaney accompanied the president in his Capitol Hill meeting, both of whom served as Republican congressmen until assuming White House roles. Trump left the meeting with a thumbs up, saying he had "a great meeting" with House Republicans and thinks the AHCA is a "real winner."

President Trump campaigned on the promise he would repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature Affordable Care Act, and the AHCA is intended to be the vehicle by which he delivers on that commitment. After Republicans expressed concern with multiple elements of the AHCA -- including major Medicaid funding reductions -- the House has reportedly reworked some provisions of the bill, which could be seen first in the version taken up by the House, or later when the Senate gets their shot at the Obamacare replacement legislation.

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan offered definitive remarks in a post-meeting press conference, saying his party is "all in" on AHCA legislation.

"He is all in, and we are all in to end this ObamaCare nightmare," Ryan said.

Ryan also offered praise for President Trump, saying he "knocked the cover off the ball."

The president "was here to do what he does best," said Ryan. "And that is to close the deal."

The House is expected to take up the American Health Care Act in a floor vote during session on Thursday.
