Donald Trump: 'I'm 100 Percent Behind' Obamacare Replacement Plan

He is a second-term lawmaker from upstate NY. "But should the leadership force a vote on this current version, it will be defeated".

"I want everyone to know I'm 100 percent behind this", Trump said. "We're going to have a health care plan that's going to be second to none".

Not all older Americans would suffer under the GOP legislation, however.

The House GOP's vote counter, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, also attended the meeting and said the changes give Republicans "the best chance" to get the legislation to the Senate.

Across the Capitol, an increasing number of senators, including Sen. Heller is the third Republican to oppose the bill. That left Senate GOP leaders at least two votes shy of what they'd need to prevail in the chamber, which they control 52-48. Over the congressional recess last month, GOP lawmakers faced raucous town halls and furious protesters demanding to keep their coverage. Thursday is the seventh anniversary of President Barack Obama signing it into law.

The House bill would create new, leaner tax credits for health insurance, cap federal spending on Medicaid for low-income people and reverse tax increases on wealthy Americans used to finance Obama's statute.

- Later, the uninsured rate would rise as federal funding shrinks and states change Medicaid rules. "It's not the right thing to do for the people".

Republicans in Washington working to overhaul the Affordable Care Act say their strategy consists of "three buckets". Finally, the new bill would prevent "non-expansion states from expanding Medicaid during the expansion phaseout", according to Axios. Thirty-one states have enlarged their Medicaid rolls under the law. "But they also show that President Trump is all-in now" to help win converts.

This literally happened. Tucker Carlson: "The counties who voted for you will do far worse under your plan" Donald Trump: "Oh, I know". Better yet, they should look for ways to retain and fix the current law.

In response to widespread criticism, the White House and House leaders have admitted changes to the bill are necessary to secure enough votes to pass it.

Conaway said he looks forward to seeing how the marketplace reacts to the lifting of restrictions, particularly for younger, healthier people whose contributions are critical to keeping costs down.

Republicans, Garin added, "lost the argument over repealing before replacing, and now the substance of their bill poses too many threats to too many people". Both conservatives and moderates are hoping the bill will move in their direction, and changes that appease some could alienate others.

"It provides nearly no new flexibility for states, does not ensure the resources necessary to make sure no one is left out, and shifts significant new costs to the state", the letter says. A superior approach would be to come up with a way to actually improve the nation's health care system.

The Congressional Budget Office also released analysis this week projecting that under the House GOP bill, some 24 million more people would be uninsured than under Obamacare.

"They have not been giving it a fair press". Conservatives criticize this bill as "Obamacare Lite", replacing one entitlement with another; those lawmakers seek a full Obamacare eradication, including popular features that allow children to remain on parents' policies until age 26 and forbid insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.
