(6 Jun 2017) U.S. President Donald Trump met with congressional GOP leaders Tuesday as Senate Republicans say they’re nearing consensus on health care legislation while they head toward a make-or-break vote by the Fourth of July.
They narrowed down legislative options at a meeting Tuesday attended by Vice President Mike Pence.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters afterward that they’re getting close to having a proposal to take to the floor.
McConnell and other congressional GOP leaders met with Trump at the White House. Trump praised the House for passing its own health care bill and encouraged the Senate to “follow suit and get a bill across the finish line this summer.”
However, it’s still not clear that the emerging Senate bill will have enough votes to pass.
