President Donald Trump declared he would get a repeal to the Affordable Care Act by executive order if he needs to early Tuesday, and the White House has since announced that President Trump will indeed sign a health care executive order on Thursday morning.

Trump tweeted Tuesday, “Since Congress can’t get its act together on HealthCare, I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people – FAST,”
The House of Representatives passed a measure that would have repealed the bill nationally known as Obamacare over the summer, but the Senate remains unable to pass legislation.
The latest Senate initiative sponsored by Sens. Linsey Graham and Bill Cassidy was universally condemned by Democrats, and Republicans like Sen. John McCain asserted they would never support the measure. According to the White House, the order will “promote health care choice and competition.”
