GOP lawmakers face healthcare bill backlash

- Some U.S. lawmakers are facing angry constituents as they return home from Washington. Voters are upset about the House bill to replace Obamacare now under review in the Senate.

Protesters showed up outside Republican Rep. John Culberson's Houston office. One of the key grievances they have is the lack of guaranteed coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

Republican Rep. Raul Labrador got booed at his town hall meeting in Idaho when he said, "Nobody dies because they don't have access to healthcare."

The Senate likely will make significant changes to the House bill that passed last week. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., talked about that on Good Day New York.

Former President Obama also weighed in on the move to replace his signature legislation that bears his name.

"It does require some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm," he said.

President Trump returned to the White House Sunday night from Bedminister, New Jersey. His team said he is braced for yet another fight over healthcare.

"We will get this done," White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said.
