Republican Replacement of Obamacare Could Derail the Battle Against Opioids in Ohio

President Donald Trump has said that Obamacare was a "disaster" and it's "failing miserably", as he plans to replace the affordable healthcare of his predecessor on account of significant increase in its insurance premium.

Not only were voters opposed to the Republican plan, which has been called "Trumpcare", they would prefer Obamacare over the new bill.

Budget Reconciliation: A legislative process that allows measures to pass with a simple majority in Congress. Budget reconciliation bills can't be filibustered, but they must focus on provisions that have a budgetary impact. "We're going to have great healthcare", Trump said in response to a question.

But Doug Walter, director for government relations at the American Psychological Association, says those improvements would be rolled back under the GOP's new proposal, harming many people who need mental health and addiction treatment. He is one of a number of Republicans who have said they can not get behind the American Health Care Act, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

More than 20 million previously uninsured Americans have gained health insurance, data show, and the nation's uninsured rate dropped to the lowest level ever recorded. Forty-nine percent of voters said they'd prefer the Affordable Care Act over the GOP's American Health Care Act.

Members departing the House Republican conference meeting said they still hadn't decided whether states would be able to institute work requirements, or whether they would be optional.

Central Jersey arts organizations would suffer under Trump budget
Smith said the endowment was first created to bring equal opportunities for the poor and wealthy to experience arts and culture . CPB President and CEO Patricia Harrison called for the preservation of her organization in a statement published this morning.

"These folks were noes, mostly noes yesterday, and now, every single one is a yes", Trump said.

A 27-year-old in Los Angeles, also with an annual income of $40,000, now gets $180 in tax credits for health insurance.

The CBO projected 52 million people would be uninsured by 2026 if the bill became law, compared with 28 million who would not have coverage that year if the law remained unchanged.

"Probably the big win for conservatives for two decades - the president did agree to block options for the states", Walker told reporters. But The Washington Post reports it's unclear whether House leaders have enough votes.

Reportedly, even if it got to the Senate as is...several State Senators have already come out in opposition of the bill as it stands right now. Other Republican governors have raised concerns about the health care effort, particularly on Medicaid.

The rollback of Medicaid expansion would affect both the Denver metro area, a Democratic stronghold, and rural Colorado, where President Trump and his party did well in 2016.
