GOP govs: ObamaCare repeal bill shifts 'significant' costs to states

Obamacare vastly increased insurance subsidies for the poor and near-poor; it paid for the expansion mainly through a series of new taxes.

"You're looking at some of the top conservatives in the House", he said. Trump, who is not steeped in policy, has signalled that he's open to negotiation in his first attempt working with Congress.

Republicans opposed to the ACA replacement bill found more reason for frustration with the release of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report on the legislation earlier this week, which found that it would lead to 24 million more uninsured over 10 years than the Affordable Care Act.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is quickly becoming the most vocal Republican critic of House Speaker Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Despite a lack of electoral pressure, they rightly fear that their constituents could be greatly harmed by a poorly designed Obamacare repeal-and-replace effort. But Rep. Steve Scalise, the House majority whip, who was seated next to Trump when he addressed media on Friday, expressed confidence the bill will ultimately collect enough "yes" votes. "This is very preliminary".

The White House this week has sought to ease such concerns, launching a full-court press. The Hill claims it was here that Trump reportedly won the support of at least thirteen members of the RSC when he agreed to allow states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients and to block grant Medicaid.

Trump added: "The bill that I will ultimately sign - and that will be a bill where everybody is going to get into the room and we're going to get it done - we'll get rid of Obamacare and make health care better for you and for your family". It means more choices.

"As written, the House bill would not pass the Senate".

Kamal Haasan's brother breathes his last
The 82-year-old producer was in London at his daughter Anu Haasan's residence, when he suffered a massive cardiac arrest. Though he was not interested in acting, his daughter Anu Haasan was well interested in acting.

Republicans have traditionally been more supportive of the CBO, using it to counter more rosy estimates made by the Clinton and Obama administrations.

Speaking at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Friday, Trump calls it a "great plan" and says it is "getting more and more popular with the Republican base, the conservative base and with people generally". The analysis also concluded that a total of 54 million people would be uninsured by 2026, roughly twice as many people now uninsured under the Affordable Care Act.

"They won't have the votes unless they change it" further, said Rep. Mark Meadows ( R-N.C.). I think they ought to take a page from the Democratic Party playbook.

The CBO report marks the beginning of a new phase in the debate over the week-old healthcare bill, which is moving through the House on an accelerated timetable despite opposition from Republicans, Democrats and virtually every sector of the U.S. healthcare industry.

"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 states", the letter - signed by Govs. "There's not a lot of room".

Of course, the GOP bill will need 216 voted in order to pass to the House.
