Paul predicts GOP healthcare plan will fail

Ted Cruz of Texas said Sunday he wouldn't vote for it as is.

"No. A lot of things aren't consistent", Trump countered.

President Donald Trump, whose administration initially embraced the House health care bill, has lately called it "very preliminary", and said he's not signing it unless it takes care of his people.

There's a disconnect between the Republican Party leadership, President Trump, conservatives in the House, practical dealmakers in the Senate and those hard-core working-class voters who supported Trump's election chiefly based on their hatred for President Obama. But moderate Republicans are balking over the CBO's findings that millions more people would lack coverage even while premiums in many cases could rise.

"It's a fine needle that needs to be threaded, no doubt about it", said Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, speaking about the negotiations Sunday on ABC's "This Week". Specifically, the president and members of the group agreed to give states the option to implement work requirements on those enrolled in Medicaid and the option to change Medicaid to a block grant program.

Ryan has been on a media and PR blitz the past week to sell the bill to conservative voters and their lawmakers.

As a federal judge, Gorsuch's record on abortion is basically silent. "Tell Jon Tester: stop the obstruction and confirm Gorsuch". Moreover, although he is a very conservative jurist, he would be replacing a justice with a similar ideological disposition.

No wonder House Republicans started voting on their health care plan to replace Obamacare without this information provided by the nonpartisan and neutral Congressional Budget Office. And I promise you, in a year, the insurance markets will still be unraveling ... But he acknowledged that the GOP bill would probably have to change. In contrast, those who would benefit from the tax rebates are the wealthy.

The president noted that "certain changes" were made to court the 13 conservative lawmakers who met with him on Friday, while declaring that Obamacare is now a "dead healthcare plan".

Ryan has spent too much time in conference rooms on Capitol Hill and not enough in town hall meetings, which revealed a monumental public discontent with the dismantling of "Obamacare" to those members who bothered to listen. They want to halt the continuance by the end of the fiscal year.

"We never ran on making the entitlement subsidies permanent", Paul said. "They have not been giving it a fair press". "But before I can do that - I would have loved to have put it first, I'll be honest - there is one more very important thing that we have to do: We are going to repeal and replace the disgusting, disastrous Obamacare".

"It worked well for 21,000 people", Friedsam said. "We're for empowering the consumer to drive prices down so you can get better-cost insurance", the Kentucky Republican said.
