Donald Trump: 'I'm 100 Percent Behind' Obamacare Replacement Plan

The aforementioned ME senator is already a "no" vote on the bill, and other moderate Republican senators have demanded that the bill adopt more generous subsidies for low-income people.

House conservatives emerged Wednesday from a Capitol Hill meeting with Vice President Mike Pence saying they are "optimistic" they can bend the Obamacare replacement to their liking before a final vote. To his credit, one of Donald Trump's first acts as the new President was to repeal Obamacare, which helped to lift penalties off Americans.

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, a libertarian-leaning representative and a member of the committee, posted on Twitter: "Absolutely not true that conservatives have flipped to yes on the healthcare bill". This has been the major problem in Congress since day one of the new GOP bill coming. If Trumpcare survives the House, it looks like it could be heading for a certain death in the Senate.

Trump reportedly agreed to support the proposals.

"This report confirms that the American Health Care Act will lower premiums and improve access to quality, affordable care", Ryan said.

Republicans are on the fence when it comes to Medicaid.

While governors, obviously, won't get a vote on the AHCA, Republican senators from expansion states are subject to similar pressures. Such a move is opposed by Republican moderates whose votes are critical. "But I believe we can fix it", Senator Ted Cruz told reporters.

But at least a dozen House Republicans did not attend the meeting with Trump and are still critical of the plan. Trump did not want to alarm those in favor of the original bill, as he claimed...

Trymp said the unspecified changes were "frankly very little". The rate of uninsured would rise drastically, both because the law would do away with the requirement that people either obtain insurance or pay a fine and, in the later years, because of changes to Medicaid rules and spending is capped, according to CBO. According to the CBO, the net effect of eliminating both Obamacare's subsidies and tax increases is a $337 billion surplus from 2017 to 2026 (that is, spending drops about $1.2 trillion and nearly $900 billion of tax increases are cut).

Would the cost of premiums rise or fall under the GOP plan?

And to further help the poor, it expanded Medicaid to cover more lower-income people.

The two headline-grabbing estimates from the CBO report have been taken out of context by some lawmakers, including Pelosi and Sánchez.

"Oh heck, yes", said one conservative leader, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, when asked if the GOP legislation needed changes to win his support.

The latest government sign-up numbers missed Obama's target of 13.8 million people for 2017. This is why support needs to be assured if the bill is ever to go through.

Before the vote, panel Chairwoman Diane Black, R-Tenn., appealed to fellow Republicans to back the legislation, calling it "the conservative health care vision we've been talking about for years". This is why many feel the GOP bill will undergo multiple changes before it ever sees President Trump. The Budget Committee will try on Thursday to unify the plan into a single bill for consideration on the House floor. "This has been going all night long and we are doing some incredible things".
