President Trump on Wednesday suggested that Republicans could use their tax reform bill to repeal ObamaCare’s individual mandate.
“Wouldn’t it be great to Repeal the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate in ObamaCare and use those savings for further Tax Cuts,” Trump tweeted.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said this week that he wouldn’t rule out including the repeal of the mandate in the tax legislation.
