Healthcare debate continues as Trump returns to the White House

After a weekend away, President Trump will face heavy fire in Washington over his health care reform bill.

While away from the White House, he couldn't escape the heated debate over his health care repeal and reform legislation.

He couldn't resist a tweet that said "Republican senators will not let the American people down! Obamacare premiums and deductibles are way up - it was a lie and it is dead!"

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, the man behind the Affordable Care Act said Trump care will hurt those who need it most.

"The most important accomplishment of the Affordable Care Act was the ending of the ability of insurers to say you can't get insurance or your charged multiple times because you have bad genes," said Jonathan Gruber, MIT professor and Affordable Care Act architect.

Democrats have claimed that the new bill will doom Republicans in the next election cycle, but White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus dismissed any and all naysayers.

"These are the same who said he wasn’t going to win. He won," he said.

Once back in Washington D.C., the president will have to deal with mounting criticism that his plan discriminates against women by classifying many normal female health conditions like pregnancy as a pre-existing condition. However, Trump supporters deny that and said it will bring better coverage and lower prices.
