Ryan: AHCA needs to include 'even more assistance' for older Americans

Trump's Not Led Down a Path by Anyone

Trump was resuming his campaign-style events at the start of a consequential week for his young presidency.

During Sunday's interview, House Speaker Ryan was asked about the specific CBO estimate that projects in 10 years a 64-year-old with $26,500 in annual income, paying $1,700 in yearly premiums under the ACA, would eventually pay $14,600 under the AHCA.

Ryan didn't say whether he had the 218 votes necessary to pass the bill, which would replace President Barack Obama's signature Affordable Care Act, but he said he feels "very good about where we are".

The bill needs 216 votes to pass the House, meaning as many as 21 Republicans could vote against it and it would still pass without support from Democrats.

"We believe we should have even more assistance, and that's one of the things we're looking at, for that person in the 50s and 60s because they experience higher health care costs", Ryan said. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) - that they agree with some of their demands in principle, according to several sources familiar with the discussions. Here is the central prize: "If we lower premiums, and hopefully lower them a lot, that is a victory for the American people".

The House was expected to vote Thursday on the GOP-backed health care bill.

Tom Price, secretary of Health and Human Services, said the Trump administration was open to changes to address the effects on older Americans and other concerns.

But it hasn't come easy - conservatives and moderate Republicans have both rallied against the House GOP health plan from its inception, pushing for changes from leadership and the White House.

Accusations of Russian Federation connections have dogged the Trump administration since he took office in January. However, Comey said he could not make an assurance that leaks will be investigated.

Under Obamacare, insurers can charge only three times more. They also complain that the GOP bill's tax credits create an overly generous benefit the federal government can not afford.

Moderates have said they won't vote for the bill after an analysis from the Congressional Budget Office showed millions could lose health insurance under the plan.

"What they have put forth is a bad bill", said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"We're still having conversations with our members", Ryan said.

Trump met last week with members of the Republican Study Committee and assured two small changes would be made to the bill.

While the Russian Federation shadow over the Trump regime gets a lot bigger and a lot darker, the popular vote loser himself is investing his tarnished political capital in getting Trumpcare out of the House this week.

"We are making fine-tuning improvements to the bill to reflect people's concerns, to reflect people's improvements", he said.

Part of the confidence stems from President Donald Trump's involvement in "helping us close this bill", Ryan said.
