White House looking to revive reapl of Obamacare

During an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said there's a "potential" that Republicans revive their efforts to repeal Obamacare before Trump's 100th day in office, April 29.

Things are happening! Eighteen to 20 new "yes" votes would nearly certainly be enough to pass the bill through the House!

"There's a balancing act here that the leadership and the White House have got to come to".

"I want to get both". Identifying how exactly to "take care" of people with preexisting conditions has always been a central bone of contention - not just among Republicans, but between Republicans and Democrats.

GOP Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, who supported the Republican health care legislation known as the American Health Care Act, has been in touch with his colleagues in the House as well as the White House about health care over Congress' two-week recess, which wraps next week.

"You, know, you've got a period when you're first elected when you've got to rush to get things done", says Moore, "before that window slams shut".

The colleagues he has spoken with appear "cautiously optimistic", Cole added.

This time, it seems both sides of the aisle say they don't want it to get to that point.

Essential health benefits require insurers to cover a baseline of health procedures such as prenatal care and emergency room visits.

Trump says United States relations with Russian Federation at 'all-time low'
That's why I supported last week's limited action against the airfield from which Assad's air force launched the chemical attack. But also, the U.S. feels right now that it has made the case that Russian support for Assad must end.

"I don't think it's having to rewrite the bill".

"Looking at next year, if we imagine that the marketplace right now is, say a C-minus, there are several things that need to be done to just preserve it at its C-minus level", said Mike Adelberg, who under Obama directed the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight established at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Senior White House officials says Trump is anxious his failure on health care-he had promised to repeal the ACA on "day one"-will be the big story in retrospectives on his first 100 days in office next week".

But there are significant obstacles.

The GOP tug-of-war tanked Republicans' first repeal-and-replace bill, leaving President Trump reaching for a legislative win in the first 100 days of his presidency.

Conservatives said the plan didn't combat the rising cost of premiums, while centrists anxious sick patients would be deprived of access to affordable, quality health insurance. He shrugged off the recent failure of the GOP health-care bill by saying the law is "exploding" anyway.

The original bill ran aground last month after Freedom Caucus members pushed at the last minute to scale back or eliminate these protections, which they argue is the only way to lower premiums.

In exchange for that conservative concession, the amendment would reinstate the "essential health benefits" that were already taken out of the bill―although, again, states could waive those provisions if they were able to show that doing so would lower premiums, increase the number of people insured, or "advance another benefit to the public interest in the state".

Moreover, while the bill putatively preserves the ban on denying people coverage for pre-existing conditions, which President Trump has repeatedly pledged to protect, most people would agree that this provision isn't worth much if insurers can charge sick people any amount. High-risk pools are insurance pools for patients with preexisting conditions subsidized by the government.
