Armed with a new amendment to the Republican health-care bill, President Trump on Thursday pushed for a vote next week on a plan he said "gets better and better and better, and it's gotten really, really good, and a lot of people are liking it a lot." Trump and his advisers are looking to notch a legislative accomplishment before his first 100 days pass next weekend, but Congress also has to pass a spending bill next week to keep the government open past April 28. It isn't clear there's enough GOP support to pass the bill even with the new amendment, negotiated by relative moderate Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.) and Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), but pushing for a new vote would also likely alienate Democrats needed to pass any spending package.
