As the effort to overhaul the tax code continues, GOP leaders continue considering repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate as part of the bill.
House Ways and Means Committee Chair Kevin Brady said Friday President Trump has told him three times he wants the mandate repealed as part of tax legislation.
Brady said the idea is being mulled over by republican leaders, but no decision has been made.
This comes as Senator Tom Cotton continues to lead the charge to add repealing the mandate to the bill, and other lawmakers have said they will not rule out the provision.
