President Donald Trump is open to adapting a proposed replacement for Barack Obama's health care law, his political allies said Sunday, insisting that the measure -- which is facing serious Republican pushback -- is merely a "framework".Uprooting Obamacare -- the Democratic president's crowning domestic achievement -- has been at the top of the agenda not just for Trump, but for congressional Republicans who have held numerous votes over the years to try to repeal it.Finally in control of the House, the Senate and the White House after November's elections, Republicans at last are in prime position to realize their stated goal -- to gut what is formally known as the Affordable Care Act.Conservative Republicans however say the bill drafted by House leaders is too expensive, and too much like the Democratic bill it aims to replace.
