Trump’s new push to overhaul healthcare

Trump’s new push to overhaul healthcare
Mr Trump is embarking on a new push to overhaul healthcare after plans pushed by House speaker Paul Ryan foundered last month, according to a global media report. 

With the Republicans in charge of both branches of Congress, as well as the presidency, Mr Trump’s officials have been locked in negotiations with party leaders on ways of making the US tax system simpler and more competitive. 

Among the key sticking points is a “border adjusted” plan that would in effect tax imports while exempting exports. Senior administration officials said the controversial measure is unlikely to survive, a development that would leave a $1tn hole in Republican tax plans over 10 years.
