Earlier this week, Trump promised a group of conservative activists that he's open to major changes to the bill, while White House adviser Kellyanne Conway separately insisted to a different group of stakeholders that the bill was nearly in its final form.

Regarding the March 9 news article "Ryan downplays GOP health care plan backlash": Paul Ryan made a startling admission.

Paul Ryan is looking to squeeze a little more out of House Republicans' health care bill, amid outcry that the measure leaves older Americans out in the cold, reports Politico. And now the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that while the federal deficit may diminish under Ryan's plan, 24 million fewer people would have health insurance 10 years from now.

"We believe we should have even more assistance". But he acknowledged that the GOP bill would probably have to change. "We are making fine-tuning improvements to the bill to reflect people's concerns, to reflect people's improvements".

President Trump on Friday met with members of the Republican Study Committee, which is mostly comprised of the party's more conservative lawmakers, in attempt to convince them to support the legislation. As a Republican, I am just as upset with the bill and its constraints as everyone else, but we must face the unfortunate reality of congressional procedure.

"I think there's enough conservatives that do not want 'ObamaCare lite, ' " Paul said on ABC's "This Week". We will take care of our people, or I'm not signing it.

Among the changes being considered are allowing states to impose a work requirement for able-bodied Medicaid recipients and increasing tax credits for lower income and older Americans, he said. "If this bill were flawless, if it was the greatest thing for Democrats and Republicans, we wouldn't get one Democrat vote", he claimed.

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

Despite the fact that Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight, many who voted for former President Barack Obama's legacy feel protective of its promises, even if they remained unfulfilled. "We're going to have more plans being offered, more choice and competition". "It's very preliminary", Trump said. A Bloomberg analysis showed that counties that voted for you, middle class and working-class counties, would do far less well under this bill than the counties that voted for Hillary, the more affluent counties. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ted Cruz of Texas have voiced strong objections, and Senate moderates don't want to boot constituents off coverage.
