55% of voters disapprove of Trump's handling of health care

The Ryan Health Care Bill puts retirement at risk by making massive cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. "That would be bad negotiating". It eliminates the "Obamacare" mandate to buy health insurance, limits tax credits and unwinds a Medicaid expansion, but some conservatives say it doesn't go far enough. RISE's website said that they planned to protest Ryan and "Washington's agenda of racism, sexism, bigotry and war". "Is it an indictment on his speakership?" "I don't want to see something like that happen to my old friends in the House of Representatives". "I think we're going to move on and end up finding a way to get this done". However, the House Freedom Caucus' s 40-member coalition against Speaker Ryan's Obamacare repeal bill might sink the bill's chances of passing. He claimed conservative opponents of the bill have come to terms, thanks to unspecified "changes".

The nonpartisan agency, which works for Congress, estimated that under the Obamacare replacement plan, premiums would increase 15 to 20 percent over the next two years before dropping 10 percent by 2026.

Still, voters believe Mr. Trump is working to make good on his campaign promises: 51 percent said he has done more than "most other presidents" to fulfill his campaign promises at this point in his administration, while 34 percent said he has done less than other presidents.

The opposition from conservative and moderate lawmakers has left Ryan trying to strike a delicate balance.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says he will seek changes to a divisive GOP health care bill to provide more help to older people hard hit by the plan. He said he did so with the understanding that changes would be made before it comes to the House floor.

"Now that we have our score ... we can make some necessary improvements and refinements to the bill", Ryan told reporters.

"It's no secret that Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster that is collapsing right in front of us, and I couldn't agree more with President Trump that repealing it is not just an option - it's a necessity".
