    US President Donald Trump stated that the healtcare plan by the Republicans in Congress will result in "a beautiful picture."

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The plan by the Republicans in Congress to replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is advancing and will end up very well, President Donald Trump said in a statement on Thursday.

    "Despite what you hear in the press, healthcare is coming along great. We are talking to many groups and it will end in a beautiful picture," Trump stated in a Twitter post.

    ​On Monday, Republicans in the US House of Representatives released their new plan for replacing the Obamacare. The plan includes provisions that prohibit insurers from denying coverage, establishing a patient and state stability fund and strengthening Medicaid.

    The healthcare legislation release by the Republicans fulfills a 2016 campaign promise made by Trump.

    On Tuesday, US Senator Rand Paul said in a Twitter message that the newly released plan from Republicans in the US House of Representatives to replace Obamacare will not pass because it is too much like the existing law.
