Trump says he asked for health plan 'with heart'

McConnell says Republicans will have a "discussion draft" of a GOP-only bill scuttling former President Barack Obama's health care law by Thursday.

He also suggested he would be willing to change the bill Republicans were crafting if Democrats would come onboard.

U.S. President Donald Trump (C) acknowledges House Speaker Paul Ryan (3rdL) as he gathers with Congressional Republicans in the Rose Garden of the White House after the House of Representatives approved the American Healthcare Act, to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with the Republican healthcare plan, in Washington, U.S., May 4, 2017.

"Up to this point, I don't have any new news - tomorrow we will see it definitively - that would cause me to change that sentiment", she said.

It's a tangible acknowledgment that Trump's pull with Senate Republicans, many of whom were not eager to back his presidential campaign, is far weaker than with House Republicans.

Those subsidies are expected to be linked to income, a "major improvement" from a healthcare overhaul bill passed in the House of Representatives that tied them exclusively to age, Republican Senator Susan Collins said on Wednesday. But it was not clear to some lawmakers Wednesday what that would entail. The Democrats have criticized the behind-the-scenes meetings, and blocked Senate committees on Wednesday from meeting for over two hours in protest. But some lawmakers also want to repeal the taxes they believe increase the cost of premiums, including the tax on insurance companies, pharmaceuticals and more. About three dozen Democrats, however, held a news conference Wednesday to say they will vote no because the bill prioritizes business tax cuts over the needs of the state's most vulnerable residents.

But Portman and Capito, like all senators, will have a chance to introduce amendments to the bill when it heads to the Senate floor, which McConnell said is likely to happen next week. And Planned Parenthood is facing strict opposition from Republicans, but moderates don't want the organization to lose funding.

"It's going to be like that every year, and we'll be lucky to have what we have", she said. That's up from 23 percent in 2008.

Debate on the Senate bill will be shaped by an analysis from the Congressional Budget Office, which will estimate the impact on federal spending and the number of people without health insurance. While the House legislation pegged federal insurance subsidies to age, the Senate bill would link them to income as the Affordable Care Act does.

During the public portion of the event - when reporters were invited in - Trump undercut the House bill, saying more funding was needed to make it "generous, kind (and) with heart". And for some older Americans and sick people, it said, premiums and out-of-pocket costs could be significantly higher.
