Trump Trashes 'Fake Media' For Falsely Reporting On American Health Care Act

US Speaker of the House Paul Ryan explains Trump-backed health care bill at the US Capitol

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he's willing to "make some modifications" but he also wants to avoid a prolonged legislative fight over the GOP plan that could end up with nothing getting done.

A House vote was scheduled for Thursday. It is nothing more than a gift to the rich and a disaster for the rest of us. "This is exactly where we want to be", the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday". But it does not rise and fall, like the ACA's subsidies, so a person pays only a fixed percentage of their income on their health insurance premiums. Cruz went on to say they have a small window to get Trumpcare passed, and if they fail, the GOP could be seen as a "laughingstock".

The GOP plan promotes health savings accounts for the affluent and encourages catastrophic insurance deductibles.

Among the changes being considered are allowing states to impose a work requirement for able-bodied Medicaid recipients, and increasing tax credits for lower income and older Americans, he said.

"I can not vote for any bill that keeps premiums rising", Cruz said, echoing the concerns of other hard-line lawmakers who want the legislation to undo more of the Affordable Care Act's insurance mandates.

"It's a fine needle that needs to be threaded", Price said.

"We have a president who is rolling up his sleeves ..." Last week, Trump agreed to add fresh Medicaid curbs to appease some conservatives.

Alice Bryant adapted the information for Learning English. "This emergency will pass, but we must be prudent", he wrote . Covered in mud and enveloped in debris , she managed to reach solid ground with bystanders cheering her on.

In a Facebook post Saturday night, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., said he couldn't vote for the bill, stressing a need "to take our time and to get this right".

That's not freedom. It's not even adequate access. "There's no doubt about it", Price responded, acknowledging changes made to the bill to win over conservatives could scare off moderate Republicans.

Several Senators, including Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas said Sunday he wouldn't vote for it as is.

He emphasized that until the bill is on the floor for a vote, "We are always making improvements". "These next few days could define us for years to come", he said.

Even with Health Secretary Tom Price contending that "nobody will be worse off financially" after the repeal, some lawmakers still aren't so sure about its future.

There are 22 House Republicans wavering on the AHCA. Officials, who closed nearby streets, did not say whether he actually had a bomb, CNN reported.

Separately, Ryan said he also expected the House to make changes to Trump's proposed budget, which calls for a boost to military spending but big-time cuts in domestic programs. I used to think that was Paul Ryan. "I believe that the real negotiation begins when we stop them".
