Paul Ryan Says Health Care Bill On Track, Despite Increasing GOP Opposition

Rep. Cathy Mc Morris Rodgers R-Wash. speaks at the GOP news conference

Many of us have forgotten that President Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency and Legal Aid; perhaps President Trump can create Healthcare for All.

But the Congressional Budget Office assessment is the official "score" that many lawmakers consider to be the most important.

24 million more people would be uninsured by 2026.

Trump said Friday that the leaders of the Republican Study Committee, which contains about 170 House Republicans, now endorse the American Health Care Act.

The report could influence sentiment toward a bill that is already under fire from both Democrats and many conservative Republicans, especially if it suggests the legislation would reduce the number of Americans with health coverage or that it would worsen USA budget deficits.

Republicans have said the goal of the plan is to lower costs and that coverage statistics are misleading due to the high out-of-pocket costs under President Barack Obama's signature health law.

The clause perhaps would have allayed some Democrats' fears on the rising costs under the new proposed legislation.

California Representative Adam Schiff tweeted that the numbers in it were "appalling" while Virginia Representative Don Beyer called it a "disaster". The rate of uninsured would rise drastically, both because the law would do away with the requirement that people either obtain insurance or pay a fine and, in the later years, because of changes to Medicaid rules and spending is capped, according to CBO. If Trumpcare survives the House, it looks like it could be heading for a certain death in the Senate.

This is because of the combined age and income based tax credit system under the Republican plan, poor Americans and those in their 50s and 60s making less than $75,000, will still face a significant increase in their monthly payments.

AARP Mobilizes Against GOP Health Plan
Beyond antagonism from congressional Democrats, the Trump administration's plan has GOP opponents in both houses of Congress. Republican Congressmen Todd Rokita and Luke Messer had also announced his support for the bill before the C-B-O report .

And the House Freedom Caucus, posting on Twitter, said: "The House Freedom Caucus still opposes the GOP replacement bill in its current form".

"Twenty percent of people on Medicaid have psychiatric illness, addiction, or dementia", Davis said in an interview on CNBC's "Closing Bell" Monday night.

Even though list price premiums for a standard "silver" plan went up by more than 20 percent this year, the average premium paid by HealthCare.gov customers after receiving their tax credit only went up by $1 this year, the report said.

"I like where Utah is that we're not exposed to a risk like that where we would have provided healthcare that we would be taking away very quickly that people have come to depend on", Hughes said. Congressional Republicans also made a point of scaring away sports teams and celebrities ready to join in public service campaigns to tell people about the benefits of getting health insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Critics say the cuts to Medicaid and other programs mean people will lose insurance and that coverage could get more expensive.

"They have not been giving it a fair press".

Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) has announced that he will vote against the Republican health care bill. "This has been going all night long and we are doing some incredible things".

But Trump still appeared open to some improvements to the bill, speaking in support of the ultimate product.

Older working class Americans would get hit hard under the Republicans' proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare. "We don't want to in any way sacrifice coverage for people who need it the most".
