President Donald Trump said Wednesday evening that he would not sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare unless it covered Americans with pre-existing conditions.

“I would not sign Graham-Cassidy if it did not include coverage of pre-existing conditions. It does! A great Bill. Repeal & Replace,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

The administration is putting its shoulder behind the Graham-Cassidy bill, which would repeal major portions of Obamacare and fundamentally change the system’s funding mechanism in an attempt, according to the senators, to promote state innovation in the implementation of health care.

Democrats in the House of Representatives attacked Senate Republicans on Twitter Wednesday for once again trying to upend the American health care system.

The Democratic members lambasted Republican senators for stripping coverage from hardworking American families, ripping protections from those with pre-existing conditions, and allowing insurance companies to prey on consumers.
