Hospitals see slowdown in health care reform as a lobbying win in Washington

In the clearest sign yet that Republicans are tapping on the brakes on health care, President Donald Trump over the weekend said that an Obamacare replacement plan is coming by the end of this year, maybe early 2018. That’s very different from last month, when the president was talking about a plan coming as soon as his Health and Human Services nominee Tom Price was confirmed. Many hospitals see the GOP going from a sprint to a slow jog as a lobbying win for them in Washington.
