Despite Support From Some Conservatives, Freedom Caucus Remains Opposed to Obamacare Plan

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee D-Texas opposes the Republican health care bill during work by the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday March 16 2017

"Enough conservatives do not want Obamacare light", Paul told ABC's "This Week".

If you get into a auto accident and wind up going to the ER or staying in a hospital for a few days, it's entirely possible that your insurance might not cover the cost of your stay (which can soar into the tens of thousands) if the effort to erase those benefits proves successful. They call it repeal and replace. They're going to vote against it.

CARLSON: This bill has, as once of its centerpieces, tax cuts for investors that would primarily benefit people making over $250,000 a year, who've already done pretty well in the past 10 years, as you know. "They'll be begging for handouts".

Paul Ryan is looking to squeeze a little more out of House Republicans' health care bill, amid outcry that the measure leaves older Americans out in the cold, reports Politico. "If we're not going to take care of the people, I'm not signing anything", he said. "We're for empowering the consumer to drive prices down to get better cost insurance".

However, Trump and other White House advisers concluded that some changes would be necessary to quell the revolt by conservatives and placate some moderates and Republican governors. It's a awful situation. Remember, the insurance companies are governed by a profit motive, you're governed by a survival motive, and these things don't really mesh.

As proposed, the plan would result in 24 million people losing their insurance in the next decade, with the majority of those impacted being lower income and poor folks.

"We never ran on replacement of Obamacare light: Of making the entitlement subsidies permanent, keeping the taxes, keeping the Medicaid expansion. We're going to have more plans being offered, more choice and competition". None of us did.

Faced with growing discontent within his own party-including the fever swamps of Breitbart, where the president's most ardent fans can't decide whether "Ryancare" is "Obamacare 2.0" or doesn't cover enough people, two positions that appear to be in conflict-Trump scrambled onto Tucker Carlson's prime-time Fox News show on Wednesday night to defend his approach and, perhaps accidentally, display a rare bit of humility.

"They're going to repeal part of it and leave in place all of the stuff that causes your insurance rates to go through the roof". Heller's spokesman Mac Abrams said Friday that the senator said he can't support the bill as the House GOP has crafted it.
