WASHINGTON, March 7 House Republicans' plan to
repeal and replace Obamacare is the first step of the Trump
administration's effort to revamp the nation's health care
system, U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price said on Tuesday.
Price, in a letter to the chairmen of two key House
committees, said congressional rules prevented the proposed bill
from including certain changes, such as allowing health
insurance to be sold across state lines and lowering drug costs.
More action would be needed, he added but gave no other detail.
