President-elect Donald Trump warned Republicans to be "careful" in approaching the Affordable Care Act in a series of tweets Wednesday morning:
Trump's roundabout backtracking comes a day after using Twitter to scold his party's efforts to hobble the Office of Congressional Ethics; Republicans eventually fell in line. Whether that was due to Trump's tweets, or a massive flood of phone calls from concerned constituents, it remains to be seen now how Republicans will react to Trump's latest warning.
Trump, for his part, has previously indicated an interest in preserving certain parts of ObamaCare. Congress is expected to begin efforts to repeal the law this week.
