Trump throws GOP's Obamacare plan into shambles

(Evan Vucci / VP)

The Obamacare repeal plan was for the House to move first, voting to gut key pieces of the law the second or third week of February. Then President-elect Trump started talking about his timeline, and things got confusing.

Trump said Tuesday he wanted to repeal the law, then replace it quickly afterwards. Then, on Wednesday, he said a replacement plan will be introduced as soon as an hour after Tom Price is confirmed as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. When that will happen is still TBD.
