Trump group's ads bolstering GOP Obamacare repeal drive

There's increased optimism among the Trump White House and some in the Republican-led Congress that legislation to reform and replace Obamacare might just be coming together, just six weeks after the very-public collapse of the initial healthcare bill.

"It's an awkward political environment, there's no question about it", said Lanhee Chen, a health-policy expert and former adviser to 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney. But Republicans will prop up its stinking corpse, Weekend-at-Bernie's style, until the president allows them to stop.

Your so-called failure to fulfill your promise to "repeal and replace" Obamacare just shows how ignorant the lame stream media can be.

The original bill that Speaker Paul Ryan was forced to pull because he could not gather enough votes from his own party to pace it also faced an uphill climb in the Senate, where even Republicans balked at being associated with a law that would strip 24 million people of their health insurance. But it's rare they actually don't make the deadline - the government has only shut down twice in history, in 1995 and 2013. "That's what they're in the final stages of doing", MacArthur said.

But, there also the very real possibility that we are looking at deja vu all over again for House Republicans and the Trump White House.

A subsidy to help insurers reduce co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses for poorer recipients was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge, and giving states the money to cover those expenses instead could get around that problem, MacArthur said.

One ad aimed at Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Ala., urges people to thank him "for standing with President Trump to repeal Obamacare now".

"I have to protect New Jersey and I'm going to do that", Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., a Ways and Means committee member. "We're still waiting to figure out what President Trump is going to embrace", says Traub, who's now at the consulting firm Deloitte.

Others argue that repealing these provisions would allow insurers and patients more freedom to operate in an unregulated market, thus keeping prices down. There isn't much of a difference between telling someone they can't buy insurance and telling someone that they can only buy it for $100,000 a year if they're poor.

He said that assuming the outline is translated into legislative text he backs and is added to the health care bill, he would now support the legislation and believes most of Freedom Caucus' three dozen members would also back it. "The president thinks that this will get Democrats to negotiate changes to the 2010 health law".

According to Height Securities, insurers are getting desperate to know whether or not they will be receiving their funding. It's impossible to write a bill that gives 216 Republicans in the House something they consider to be politically and substantively acceptable.

"'Repeal and replace' was bad", MacArthur said. "One of the things that has caused this whole effort to fail is that we used poisonous language".

"It's unbelievable the diverse things you hear from different people", Cole said, noting the responses range from "'it's hopeless" to "Oh, it's going to get there'".
