The first piece is Trump himself and people like his most distressing press spokesman Sean Spicer, as Trump has already disassociated himself from Ryan, and now refers to his number one item on his agenda, as Ryan Care.
Who can forget all the scary claims coming from Congressional Republicans and candidate Trump about skyrocketing premiums under ObamaCare?
It’s unclear what changes, if any, Trump and the Republicans sitting around him had agreed upon in what Trump described as a process that went “all night long”.
Trump, who campaigned on a pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare and provide insurance for everybody, has yet to comment on the report.
It was then left to the House of Representatives as well as the Senate to come up with a new bill that could replace Obamacare.
Some conservatives have criticized the plan as being too similar to the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
But the Congressional Budget Office projected that these credits do little to offset massive premium increases for lower-income seniors under the new bill.
It’s the House maniacs against Paul Ryan against popular vote loser Donald Trump against Republican senators against Republican governors as the fight over who’s going to own Trumpcare continues. Mark Walker, R-N.C., the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, told reporters.
Republicans are on the fence when it comes to Medicaid. But if Texas still refuses to expand, it will have to share a pot of $10 billion over five years with other non-expansion states, per the GOP bill. It was agreed then to allow this in the states that wanted it and places like OH actually benefited. And because the Republican bill leaves the door open for states to expand Medicaid before 2020, he thinks more states will do that to get in on the deal.
Lawmakers in Congress are now considering the American Health Care Act in several committees.
The group said the number of uninsured would jump to 24 million by 2026.
How will the bill affect young people?
“This is not the repeal bill that we’ve been waiting for for all these years”.
“The president asked us specifically: Would we support him on this American Health Care Act” if the changes were made, Walker said.
Three conservative GOP lawmakers joined the panel’s Democrats in voting against the measure. Without most people on board, the House can not even get it to the Senate to even consider.
Republicans in Congress – if they can get their act together and stop fighting each other – are in a position to radically change things for the better.
But the Republican Study Committee is far from the only constituency within the House GOP that President Trump has to deal with.
It’s the more conservative Freedom Caucus members that still need to be convinced, and in a way that won’t push out the party’s moderates concerned with coverage loss.
Nonetheless, conservatives have begun to back away from their urgent demands that House leaders scrap the legislation and start fresh.
