"Everything had been moving smoothly until the administration moved in with a heavy hand,"Matt House, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, told the Post".
So, outside of a handful of people like Meadows (North Carolina) and MacArthur (New Jersey), leaders of the Freedom Caucus and the Republican moderates respectively, nearly no one in the House GOP conference has actually seen the changed bill, much less approved of it.
Critics noted that the amendment would allow states to opt out of several Obamacare consumer protection guarantees, such as a provision in the law banning insurers from charging certain consumers higher rates.
The waiver would effectively undermine Obamacare's pre-existing conditions mandate, according to health care experts, because it would nullify the requirement that insurers offer coverage in a given area at the same price, regardless of health status.
A moderate House Republican is proposing a new deal to secure GOP votes for a health care bill that was pulled before a vote almost a month ago, but it's unclear whether the latest proposal would bring the party together when several previous efforts have failed.
According to a draft of the amendment obtained by Politico, the plan allows states to apply for "limited waivers" to opt out of Obamacare insurance mandates-a change created to address conservatives' concerns with the legislation. This new proposal still allows states to waive out of it, but with the addition of the high-risk pool requirement.

If states requested waivers, people with pre-existing conditions would likely be covered through state-run high-risk pools, which can be expensive for patients and for taxpayers. "It was reported there was a give-up", Trump said. So the appearance of activity on health care is better than nothing.
"Everything had been moving smoothly until the administration moved in with a heavy hand", countered Matt House, a spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Democrats say they also want more money for domestic priorities like medical research, environmental programs, and education - beyond what the GOP is willing to support.
"The [compromise] doesn't address the things that I had concerns about - the things I think are detrimental to the people I represent", Rep. Dan Donovan, a moderate New York Republican who says he's a "no" on the bill, told Politico.
So basically they're hoping to con people out of noticing that Essential Health Benefits and pre-existing protections will be gone (at least in many states) until it's too late. Republicans' healthcare reform plan would have "better prospects", argued James Capretta and Lanhee Chen, if it embraced the idea of automatically enrolling uninsured, eligible Americans in bare-bones, no-premium health insurance plans. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said he couldn't support a proposal that jeopardized coverage for the approximately 300,000 people in his state dependent on the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion.
He said the wall is "something that's a tremendous priority for us and that clearly was a seminal issue in the 2016 presidential race".
