Which Congresswoman will the next GOP leader stand with?
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is set to announce his leadership picks on Monday morning.
The top GOP candidate to replace Speaker Paul Ryan, the GOP’s leader, is expected to be Rep. Tom Price (R), the former secretary of health and human services, a Trump ally.
The GOP-led House is expected, if not expected, to pass the legislation by Thursday.
The announcement comes after McCarthy held his first meeting of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday morning, which was largely devoted to the House and Senate bills.
The meeting was a major focus of McCarthy’s remarks on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, when he made clear he was not running for Speaker, instead saying that the House was focused on repealing Obamacare and repealing the Affordable Care Act.
The House is currently in the midst of an investigation into the health care law, a bill that the Trump administration has called “Obamacare Lite.”
