Banks says he'll support new health-care bill, with changes

Trump says 'very seldom' regrets tweets despite criticism of wiretap charge

Driven by the ways in which the bill would seriously harm Americans 50 and older, AARP has chose to make the decision on final passage in the House "an accountability vote".

Republicans remain deeply divided over the healthcare overhaul, which is President Donald Trump's first major legislative initiative.

Many in Texas are keeping a close eye on the Republican bid to replace the Affordable Care Act.

Lawmakers in Washington, D.C., are considering a bill that would drive up health care costs by thousands of dollars a year for Americans ages 50-64.

"We believe we should have even more assistance - and that's one of the things we're looking at - for that person in their 50s and 60s because they experience higher healthcare costs", he said on the "Fox News Sunday" television program.

Ryan also said Republicans are working on changes that would allow federal block grants to states for Medicaid and adding a work requirement to the programme.

The vehicle was stopped Saturday around 11:00 p.m. about a quarter-mile from the White House. A man has been detained after jumping over a bike rack barrier by the White House.

Meanwhile, the president said he had meetings about healthcare reform in Florida during the weekend. Our elected officials have stated Medicare will not be changed, and health care coverage for Medicare eligible is assured.

As the ACHA stands, it seems that some seniors could be left without adequate care, because the bill's tax-credit structure won't provide as much coverage as the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) subsidies now do. By fundamentally changing the financing structure of Medicaid through a per-capita cap on spending, the bill would weaken this vital safety net program. However, there is no guarantee funding would keep up with future demands. In order for it to pass the House, there can be no more than 21 Republican "no" votes.

And, asked whether investigation into President Trump's claims that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower posed "a distraction", Ryan told Wallace: "I want to get on with passing our agenda".

"They could lock Texas into a lot of historical decisions that were strictly driven by a desire to write the smallest budget possible", she says. "Well, it's a fine needle that needs to be thread", he said, "there's no doubt about it".

While Republican infighting ensues over the bill, critics highlight the bill's potential failure to address critical issues for elderly Americans. Critics say the measure would make millions of people lose their health coverage, disrupt insurance markets and still leave the government on the hook for costly entitlements.

"The bill I introduced today assures insurance companies that they will not be penalized by any federal agency if they offer insurance plans like they were able to before the ACA was signed into law", Yoho continued.
