Are pregnancy, rape pre-existing conditions?

- Darrell Issa - Issa, who represents parts of San Diego and Orange counties, said he voted for the legislation to keep Republicans' longtime promise to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care law.

"They're going to have to come up with a bill that meets this 50-vote threshold by pleasing camps that are arguably even more polarized than Republicans in the House of Representative", Hayes said.

The momentum appeared to carry over beyond health care. Trump exclaimed at the White House, arms raised to salute the dozens of lawmakers who hurried to join him in the Rose Garden immediately after the vote.

This back and forth process can significantly delay passage of the bill-if a consensus in the Senate is even reached.

The Senate will not be voting on the proposed healthcare act as is. Set aside for the moment were the feuds and philosophical divides that almost sank the bill time and again. In the weeks that followed, House Republicans made multiple amendments to AHCA to make it passable. And they are urging the Senate to make some serious changes to that bill. He purchased a high-deductible plan for his family.

On Wednesday, he told reporters they would support the legislation with an $8 billion amendment added over five years to assist those with pre-existing conditions in states that seek waivers under the Republican health care plan as now proposed.

Republicans including Trump have campaigned relentlessly on the pledge to dismantle the 2010 reforms.

But despite holding the White House and controlling both houses of Congress, Republicans have found overturning Obamacare politically perilous, partly because of voter fears, loudly expressed at constituents' town-hall meetings, that many people would lose their health insurance as a result.

"For seven years the Republicans have been promising, 'If only you elect us, we'll repeal Obamacare, ' " Cruz said in a radio interview on Saturday. "End this failed experiment".

The ad blasts Republicans in potentially tight 2018 races for voting for "a disastrous health-care repeal bill", but doesn't mention the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, by name.

But Price insisted Sunday, "There are no cuts to the Medicaid program", adding that resources were being apportioned "in a way that allows states greater flexibility". It would transform Obama's subsidies for millions buying insurance, now based largely on their incomes, making the funding skimpier and tying it to consumers' ages. Some don't like its easing of Obama coverage requirements on insurers, and others think its tax credits must be redirected toward lower-income people.

These people are not just at risk because of those conditions, but also because so many are suffering from them can barely afford the health care they have now.

"I've already made clear that I don't support the House Bill as now constructed because I continue to have concerns that this Bill does not do enough to protect Ohio's Medicaid expansion population", said Republican Senator Rob Portman.
