Who gets hurt by repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act

Trump may move GOP health care bill to the right dooming it in the Senate

Trump may move GOP health care bill to the right dooming it in the Senate

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 US budget deficits.

Just as the party's conservatives began expressing optimism about the proposal's fortunes, Republican moderates raised concerns that tax credits now in the bill meant to help people buy health insurance were not sufficient.

"If they hurt patients, they need to go away", he said. "It's fake news. This is going to be great for people". "We ought not be measuring programs by how much money we put into it, we ought to be measuring them by whether or not they work". "That's the word. It's got to be sustainable", Herbert said. "We're making the kinds of improvements and refinements that we think make this bill better", Mr. Ryan told Fox Business Channel, while saying the "major components" will remain intact. Prior administrations, both Republican and Democratic, have steered clear of attacking the credibility of the agency, which many lawmakers regard as a neutral arbiter.

Many in Texas are keeping a close eye on the Republican bid to replace the Affordable Care Act.

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. We support efforts to strengthen and improve our nation's health-care system and extend insurance coverage; thus, we oppose the legislation as introduced because of the adverse impact it would have on millions of Americans, particularly those with mental-health and substance-use disorders. This is why many feel the GOP bill will undergo multiple changes before it ever sees President Trump. The CBO doesn't break down who benefits from the tax cut, but other analyses show it would flow heavily to top earners, with $144 billion going to those with incomes over $1 million.

"This proposal to end the Medicaid program as we know it would lock Virginia into the very lean and mean program that we have now into perpetuity", Michael Cassidy, president and CEO of The Commonwealth Institute, a Richmond-based fiscal policy analysis group that focuses on issues that impact low-income and middle-class people, said in an interview earlier this week. For instance, she said the AHCA calls for additional "safety net" funding to assist nonexpansion states in caring for people without coverage. Insurance premiums for the elderly would rise significantly, while younger people would pay less or not purchase health insurance absent any penalty.

"Our plan is not about forcing people to buy expensive, one-size-fits-all coverage", he said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan was the one who first introduced the bill, and he seemed very confident early on that the bill would pass through the House at least. Trump has so far embraced the bill.

Later Friday morning, at a meeting on veterans' affairs, Trump said it took 15 minutes into the discussion with the study committee members to change their mind.
