President Donald Trump criticized the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, in his latest tweet Thursday ahead of House Republicans' meeting to vote on the president’s health care plan. Conservatives condemned the plan calling it overly moderate.

The tweet was made from Trump’s official presidential account. In the tweet, Trump supported his American Health Care Act: “You were given many lies with #Obamacare! Go with our plan! Call your Rep & let them know you're behind #AHCA.”

Over two dozen GOP lawmakers have voiced their opposition to Trump’s health care plan, which is not likely to have enough votes to pass it. Conservatives want to remove the federal requirements, under which health insurance plans offer basic benefits such as maternity care and wellness visits. However, moderates have opposed the plan over fears that it would endanger the health of their constituents.

According to a poll released March 15 by Public Policy Polling, only 24 percent of voters supported Trump’s health care plan and 49 percent of the respondents opposed the bill. The poll surveyed 808 people between March 10 and 12.

“There’s virtually no support for the Republican health care plan,” Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling, said. “Voters have been getting warmer and warmer toward the Affordable Care Act and would much rather keep it than switch to the new proposal on the table.”

Earlier this week, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, urged House Republicans not to vote for Trump’s health care plan.

“I am strongly, strongly persuaded that it is not going to pass. I think they should cancel the vote because they don't have the votes,” Lee said. “The fact remains, they don't have the votes to pass this. They need to bring people and who have concerns, bring in conservatives, let them express what their concerns are. We can still fix this.”

Lee also said that the bill has a “false promise of providing Americans with meaningful healthcare cost relief.”
