Ryan Looks to Thursday Health Care Vote With More Elder Pay Help

Trump's Not Led Down a Path by Anyone

Trump's Not Led Down a Path by Anyone

Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the House's No. 3 Republican and the leader responsible for rounding up votes, wrote Sunday night to his whip team that the "next few days could define us for years to come".

Despite the tweaks Ryan said the bill needs, he added that he feels "very good" about the legislation's progress and where things now stand.

"We think we should be offering even more assistance than the bill now does", Ryan said yesterday of the bill's proposed tax-credit structure.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said he and two other conservative leaders - Sen. Here is the central prize: "If we lower premiums, and hopefully lower them a lot, that is a victory for the American people".

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that under the GOP plan, a 64-year-old with an income of $26,500 would pay $14,600 in yearly out of pocket costs.

In the meantime, House Speaker Ryan said he still expects the full House to take up the AHCA Thursday after the bill is taken up by the House Rules committee. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price also said regulatory changes in particular could increase competition in markets. That age group tends to have more medical issues than younger adults and, thus, higher insurance costs, and the ACA forbids insurers to charge their oldest customers more than three times their rates for young adults - essentially having young adults cross-subsidize the cost of coverage for older ones.

The government's proposal reflects many of his campaign promises, including that the wall be tall and "beautiful". Height: The structure has to be "physically imposing", suggesting a height of 30 feet.

"They still believe that the conservatives in their caucus don't want Obamacare Lite", he said.

The bill needs 216 votes to pass the House, meaning as many as 21 Republicans could vote against it and it would still pass without support from Democrats. They also complain that the GOP bill's tax credits create an overly generous benefit the federal government can not afford.

According to a new CBS News poll, only 12-percent of Americans support the so-called "Trumpcare" while more than 40-percent say they oppose it.

North Carolina Republican Meadows said the changes being considered for the Medicaid program would not go far enough if they left it up to states to decide whether to put in place a work requirement.

Speaking on NBC's Meet the Press, Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME anxious the bill would harm older Americans, and shift Medicaid costs to states-something critics say a block-grant approach would only make worse. Republicans hold a majority in the chamber but can not afford to have more than 21 defections for the measure to pass. As a result, he said there will be some "fine-tuning improvements" to the law that will help assuage some members' "concerns".

Part of the confidence stems from President Donald Trump's involvement in "helping us close this bill", Ryan said.
