What's likely to change in the GOP bill to repeal Obamacare

Some would choose not to have insurance, but others would find themselves without health care that they could have had under the ACA.

Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump defended the idea of using government resources to provide low-income people with health care, insisting that he didn't want to see anyone "dying in the middle of the street".

"A really important thing for everybody to know is that addiction is not a physical weakness", he said. If those people become sick and can't seek treatment, they'll be less likely to find work.

Some stem from the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion, which IL chose to accept.

"They should just pull the plug on this bill", Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday, the Democratic House Minority Leader. But the White House, in its eagerness to win conservative support for the legislation, is apparently planning to pressure Republicans in Congress to move up that date to the beginning of 2018.

Also, the legislation would give states the option to receive federal Medicaid funding as a block grant.

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

The administration also needs to address the purchase across state lines, to make certain that it is driving down drug costs, and to make certain that it addresses the lawsuit abuse that exists in the country in the area of health care that drives up the costs for so many individuals, he said. "The American public wants access to affordable, quality care; they want to make sure the care is there when they need it".

On a broader philosophical base, Ducey said he's concerned that simply rearranging the kind of coverage Medicaid provides does nothing to restore the private insurance market. "It will close up very, very soon if something isn't done", he said.

Conservative Republicans who met Trump said he agreed to changes on the Medicaid government insurance program for the poor.

If Trump is offering changes to mollify conservatives, it's unclear whether that risks losing votes on the other end of the spectrum.

The Freedom Caucus reaffirmed after the meeting that it still "opposes the GOP bill in its current form".

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates published earlier this week, 14 million more people would not have health insurance in 2018 under the American Health Care Act (AHCA) than under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

"You take a look at the economy, and a lot of the growth is coming from companies with 100 employees or less", he said. "They'll have nobody", he said, adding that there are many states where they have one. Even though I do believe that government makes you buy vehicle insurance, making it profitable for insurance companies.

Ryan said Republican leaders still plan to bring the healthcare bill to a vote on the House of Representatives floor on Thursday.
