HOUSE REPUBLICANS UNVEIL CHANGES TO THEIR HEALTH-CARE BILLHouse Republican leaders, racing toward a planned Thursday vote on their proposed health-care overhaul, unveiled changes to the legislation late Monday that they think will win over enough members to secure its passage. Those changes were included in the leadership-backed amendments that will be incorporated into the bill before it comes to a final vote. The same study found that 34 percent of Republicans making between $30,000 and $75,000 per year believe it is the government's responsibility to provide health care for all, while just 14 percent of the same subgroup said the same last year.

If passed in the House, the legislation then moves to the Senate, where a tighter 52-48 Republican majority makes the outlook less certain.

"After receiving the president's word that these concerns will be addressed, I changed my vote to yes". Bill Cassidy said, the New York Times reported.

AARP says the AHCA would also repeal an additional point 9 percent payroll tax that could cost Medicaid $117 billion and could threaten the programs solvency up to four years earlier than expected, potentially as soon as 2024.

Partly as a result of that expansion, the percentage of NY adults without insurance fell from 12.6 in 2013 to 7.0 in 2016, according to the Gallup Healthways Well-Being Index. And he said he's not against keeping Medicaid expansion, but cautions that would mean increasing state taxes to pay for it.

The amendment would attempt to accomplish the same thing.

According to a background document on the amendment obtained by HuffPost, New York counties contribute $7 billion to New York's roughly $27 billion annual Medicaid liability, with $2.2 billion of those coming from outside New York City.

Forbes unveils 31st annual list of world's richest billionaires
Chaudhari, who made his debut in the Forbes billionaire list in 2013, saw his fortune increase by US$ 210 million a year ago . The richest person with a tech fortune - who's also the richest person in the world-is Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates.

Already, rising costs in that program have forced legislators to put more and more money into the program each year. "Health care's growth is more durable", Yoon says.

Republicans leaders want to push their bill repealing and replacing much of the 2010 health care law through Congress by April.

The result of this "one-two punch", she warned, would be some combination of higher taxes and benefit cuts.

If forced to find more savings, the state could cut optional services provided through Medicaid, such as in-home care for people with disabilities and the elderly.

That redesign is estimated to come with deep spending cuts.

Although Paul was in Louisville Monday, he is skipping President Trump's rally in Louisville Monday night, saying he was headed back to Washington to drum up votes against the repeal plan, which is headed for a vote Thursday. The Buffalo Buyout ― or the Tammany Haul, or the Empire State Earmark, or whatever you may want to call it ― is a recognition that leaders are close, but can't afford to lose votes from moderates.

"The Senate Democrats are engaging in absolute opposition and obstruction, and it is hard to see that changing anytime soon", Cruz told reporters after leaving the meeting. Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah voiced their opposition, enough votes to sink the bill in the Senate. Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.), a member of the Republican Study committee who attended the meeting, said Trump went around the room, asking attendees for their concerns and whether they would support the measure, with GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) sitting nearby.
