Republicans pitch healthcare plan ahead of key vote

Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Sunday that his plan to reform the health care system would crush older Americans by forcing them to either drop insurance coverage or pay thousands more.

"We think we should be offering even more assistance than the bill now does", for lower-income people age 50 to 64, Ryan said of the tax credits for health insurance that are proposed in the legislation.

Last Friday, the White House won support from conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) leaders by agreeing to give states the option to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients and to block grant Medicaid instead of the cap system in the bill.

It landed as Republican moderates and conservatives in the House remained split, and senators expressed reservations.

"We've been working at this literally for seven years", said the No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn.

Cotton disputes the suggestion that Obamacare is working well in Arkansas or enjoys much popularity, but acknowledges high anxiety among his constituents about what happens next.

For example, a 64-year-old making $26,500 would see premiums increase from $1,700 to $14,600, the CBO found.

RISE - an organization committed to "empowering Americans to monitor and take action in response to the Trump Administration" - is planning to protest the event. That, according to the CBO estimate, leads to substantial cost savings that - together with cuts to Medicaid - allow the GOP plan to eliminate almost all of the taxes imposed under the ACA.

"The president and the vice president have called a group of conservatives from the U.S. House of Representatives and asked us for our support to move the American Health Care Act forward", Walker told reporters after the meeting. However, the orientation of his health care proposal is a far cry from Jesus, who proclaimed, "Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me" (Matt. 25.40). "I believe that the real negotiation begins when we stop them".

Ryan said he's also impressed with how President Trump is helping the GOP to "close this bill". He cited Trump's hands-on involvement as a key factor is moving the legislation forward. "We're making fine-tuning improvements to the bill to reflect people's concerns, to reflect peoples' improvements". He also says some changes have been made to the bill. "We are right where we want to be".
