Trump OKs changes in GOP health care bill, winning support

This month House Speaker Paul Ryan unveiled the highly anticipated Republican alternative to Obamacare: The American Health Care Act.

During a Sunday interview, Wallace said that 24 million fewer Americans overall would have insurance under the Ryan plan in 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). He added that while "market freedom and regulatory relief" would "dramatically lower" costs in that age demographic, "even with that, we think, we should be offering more assistance than what the bill now does".

"As the Speaker has repeatedly said, this bill will work its way through regular order and while the structure will remain intact, modifications will happen during the legislating process", AshLee Strong, a spokesperson for House Speaker Ryan, said in the report.

Cotton is warning House Republicans against voting for the bill, cautioning that it could die in the Senate and cause political pain for all its supporters, and threatening to withhold his own vote unless it becomes more to his liking.

McConnell emerged from backstage to take the praise, giving a double thumbs up - a Trump standard - to the President. At one point, Trump blamed the media for making it more hard to pass the reform.

Trump is set to meet Ezekiel Emanuel, a health policy special adviser under Obama who helped shape the Affordable Care Acton, at the White House on Monday, along with Ryan and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.

At a late rally in Nashville Wednesday, President Donald Trump said: "We're going to arbitrate, we're all going to get together, we're going to get something done". Last week, Trump agreed to add fresh Medicaid curbs to appease some conservatives. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick said in a Facebook post Saturday night that while he believes the Affordable Care Act is "broken", he wouldn't vote for the Republican bill in its current form, citing its impact on the "single most important issue plaguing" his constituents, "opioid abuse prevention, treatment and recovery".

Conservative lawmakers have criticized the GOP measures for keeping certain components of ObamaCare in place.

Conservatives want to end Obama's expansion of Medicaid to 11 million additional low-income people next year, not 2020 as the bill proposes.

Asean is a regional bloc that also includes Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. That's only for them", he said, as quoted by Rappler .

GOP Rep. John Katko, from a closely divided district in upstate NY, said late Friday he opposed the measure. Twenty-two House Republicans could kill the measure and " at least 16 plausible defections". Sens. Dean Heller of Nevada, Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky are also opposed. "These next few days could define us for years to come", he said. Those may provide clues about the types of changes GOP leaders believe the legislation will need for it to win House approval, which top Republicans hope will occur next week. He told them: "This is our moment to make history".

Ryan said Congress was proud to have passed the Cures Act previous year, which calls for additional NIH money for "breakthrough discoveries on cancer and other diseases", so he expects the proposed NIH cut to be revised. But I will say that NIH is something that's particularly popular in Congress. ...
