Ryan and other GOP leaders have chafed at Cotton's repeated calls to slow down the health care bill, which leadership is eager to get through Congress quickly. "That would be bad negotiating". It doesn't repeal Obamacare.

But conservatives aren't willing to abandon Ryan yet, and are instead saying they hope that the House speaker and the chamber's right flank can begin negotiations. No, I don't see that. However, the House Freedom Caucus' s 40-member coalition against Speaker Ryan's Obamacare repeal bill might sink the bill's chances of passing. These are strong, conservative wins that will substantially improve the bill.

The nonpartisan agency, which works for Congress, estimated that under the Obamacare replacement plan, premiums would increase 15 to 20 percent over the next two years before dropping 10 percent by 2026. Obama rejected that effort to repeal his namesake law.

"We are doing some incredible things", Trump said during a meeting with a conservative Republican committee.

The opposition from conservative and moderate lawmakers has left Ryan trying to strike a delicate balance. We jointly drafted this legislation - the House, the Senate and the White House.

Of those who said they were opposed to the Republican plan, the American Health Care Act, 67% said it was because the bill "makes too many changes to Obamacare" and 21% said they didn't support the plan because it "doesn't make enough changes to Obamacare".

"When the vote comes up, that's when it will be a binary choice", Mr. Ryan said.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -After meeting with Pres. Donald Trump, Rep. Jim Banks (R), of Indiana's 3rd District, says he will support the bill to replace ObamaCare, as long as the changes he discussed with Trump stay in place. Nearly half agreed with the idea that Obamacare would collapse if left untouched, a position put forward by many Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.
