Trump to Capitol in last-ditch lobbying for health care bill

How would the Republican health care plan affect you?

He said the House was likely to bring the Republicans' Affordable Care Act replacement to floor vote Thursday. Top House Republicans unveiled revisions to their bill in hopes of nailing down support. Their votes will tell voters what - and who - they value most.

If a Republican congressional majority and a Republican president can't use their power of persuasion to convince enough members of their party to repeal and replace Obamacare, it will leave many people wondering why they are needed.

"We didn't run on that, and so they're really flat-out false in telling us, 'Oh, you guys ran on this plan.' None of us ran on this plan".

That might be a political victor for Republicans, but it risks leaving millions of people, especially the poor, in a gap between Medicaid and other health benefits and whatever comes next.

The Trump-Ryan health care bill faces a different series of problems in the Senate, where moderates have more power. Sen.

Possible changes include giving more tax credits for buying health insurance to older and lower-income people, and repealing ObamaCare's taxes sooner. Details in the documents released were initially unclear, but one GOP lawmaker and an aide said the plan sets aside $85 billion over 10 years for that objective. It would repeal many tax increases boosted by President Barack Obama's 2010 statute this year instead of 2018.

"Later today, we will release some technical and policy changes that further strengthen the bill", Brady said of planned changes to treatment of Obamacare taxes, optional work requirements for Medicaid and an option for states to accept Medicaid funding as a block grant.

According to AARP, premiums for people in our age group are forecasted to increase by 20 to 25 percent under the proposed American Health Care Act.

The Congressional Budget Office projected the number of people between 50 and 64 without insurance would more than double to nearly one in three under the bill and many older, more costly enrollees would leave the insurance market because of higher prices and other factors.

According to the CBO review 24 million more Americans would be uninsured than they would be under Obamacare by the year 2026.

Democrats have opposed the GOP repeal effort.

The GOP bill would dismantle Obama's requirements that most people buy policies and that larger companies cover workers. While the final details have yet to be confirmed, Statista is speculating that the new plan will reduce the federal budget deficit by $337 billion over the next decade - but at the expense of millions of Americans. States will also be allowed to alter the entire federal-state program for poorer people so states would receive a lump sum federal payment to cover some costs - not an amount that's pegged to the number of beneficiaries in the state, as the current bill provides.

Earlier Monday, Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., chair of the conservative Republican Study Committee, also expressed doubt about the bill's ability to garner enough Republican support. Walker says he expects more changes before the Senate passes the measure but the GOP must do something. And I look forward to working with him so we can get this bill passed, in some form, so that we can pass massive tax reform, which we can't do until this happens.

PAUL: I talked to the House Freedom Caucus leadership over the weekend.

Other members of the Freedom Caucus pinned the blame on House Speaker Paul Ryan, rather than President Trump. That could indicate that a significant fraction of its members were not willing to vow "no" votes.

Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said his group wouldn't take a position on the bill, even as House Republican leadership unveiled a so-called manager's amendment created to persuade skeptical conservative and moderate Republicans to support it.
