President Trump threatened both lawmakers and the insurance market on Saturday, warning their "bailouts" will end "very soon" if Congress don't pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

"If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!.." Trump tweeted on Saturday.

The "bailout" for insurance companies may be in reference to cost-sharing reduction subsidies, which Trump has previously indicated he wanted to cut as a negotiating tactic to bring Democrats to the table on healthcare reform. The administration has been paying the funds each month, including for July, while waiting for congressional progress on repealing and replacing portions of Obamacare.

The second part of his tweet appears to be threatening an elimination of subsidized healthcare for members of Congress.
