Key Republicans come around on ObamaCare replacement

Key Republicans come around on ObamaCare replacement

"This is the plan we ran on all of previous year".

"This will basically reverse all the gains in coverage that we've achieved since 2014 when Medicaid was expanded in 31 states across the country, including here in Michigan where it's known as the Healthy Michigan plan", Ayanian said. Republican leaders repeatedly have said that was their schedule, but opposition mushroomed after a congressional report concluded this week that the measure would strip 24 million people of coverage in a decade.

Politico first reported Friday that Republicans planned to vote next week. "We've done some great things", and "health care looks like it's really happening". "We need to keep our word". It doesn't repeal Obamacare. It is within our own power as Republicans to do as much of repeal and replace as possible.

The speaker has a point. The ACA is providing lifesaving access to health care to more than a million Pennsylvanians. It's just unclear who will be declared the victor.

"Absolutely not true that conservatives have flipped to yes on the health care bill", Amash wrote on Twitter.

One troubling sign for Republicans is just how uncoordinated, and sometimes conflicting, their messages are to their members and the public.

Health secretary Tom Price was using phone calls to lobby Republican governors, some of whom oppose the bill's phasing out of Obama's expansion of Medicaid to 11 million lower-income Americans.

The bill likely faces tough resistance in the Senate, where only three Republican defections can doom its passage. Sen.

House GOP leaders met with Senate counterparts recently and "they got a clear message from Senate Republicans that there had to be changes", said Grassley.

The Budget Committee is a largely procedural body, and it will not consider amendments to the bill. By contrast, the Affordable Care Act's subsidies, which now help Iowans purchase health insurance, take into account a family's income and the local cost of insurance, in addition to age.

"It's vintage Donald Trump: talks like a populist, but when he acts, it's hard-right, favoring the special interests and hurting the middle class and those trying to get there", Democrat Schumer told a news conference.

Back at the White House, President Trump's personal thoughts on all of this remain entirely unclear. After visiting with President Trump and Vice President Pence recently, he said the new proposal would allow for more state control to address the rising costs of healthcare.

But Trump said he's confident the sides would come together.

The president is travelling to Kentucky next Monday for a rally in Louisville where he will presumably make the case for the health care bill. Effects include increased financial burden on the state and a drop in residents with health care coverage.

The Medicaid issue has made moderates in Congress tired about voting for the plan.

Or maybe, as Ryan says, it's all according to plan.
