President Obama plans to meet with Democrats from the House and Senate in order to discuss strategies to defend Obamacare from Republican attacks.
The meeting will reportedly take place at the Congressional Visitors Center auditorium on Wednesday, January 4th.
Republicans, led by Donald Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) have announced plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act. So far, Republicans have yet to formulate or reveal what they plan to replace the health care law with, and a repeal would leave millions of vulnerable Americans without health insurance.
In order to push back on the negative consequences of repealing the law, Republicans are reportedly discussing a plan to phase out the law over an extended period which would slowly destroy the law beyond the 2020 presidential election.
