White House Pushes Uncertain Bid to Revive Health Care Bill

White House Pushes Uncertain Bid to Revive Health Care Bill

Underscoring the challenges Republicans face, one poll showed Monday that the public trusts Democrats over the GOP on health care by their biggest margin in almost a decade. Specifically, Trump suggested that once he deliberately undermines America's insurance markets and people start losing their coverage, then Democrats will be desperate to vote for his health-care plan - because everyone will blame Democrats for what he did.

"President Trump was very good in the negotiating process", Brat said. "I'd like to say next week".

The original bill ran aground last month after Freedom Caucus members pushed at the last minute to scale back or eliminate these protections, which they argue is the only way to lower premiums. "I would like to say next week, but I believe we will get it, and whether it is next week or shortly thereafter". They cited the higher priority of passing a spending bill within days to avert a government shutdown, uncertainty over details of the developing health agreement and a need to sell it to lawmakers.

After chatter from the White House about a vote as soon as next week, President Trump on Friday seemed more downbeat, saying at an executive order signing that there is "no particular rush".

Congressmen David Joyce and Mike Turner of OH and U.S. Rep. Rob Wittman of Virginia all came out against the partial repeal bill from the left - meaning they felt it cut too much from former president Barack Obama's socialized medicine monstrosity. The health care industry industry last week implored Trump to maintain funding for the subsidies. The Staten Island centrist said he remained a no vote, partly because the legislation would increase Medicaid costs for New York City's five boroughs. Trump says Republicans are still making great progress on a healthcare deal, so he also sets off frenzies among Republicans to substantiate that claim, even though they'll never be able to.

Nominally, the "MacArthur Amendment" would retain the Essential Health Benefits standard imposed by the ACA, which requires insurance policies to cover eventualities such as hospitalization, maternity and emergency care - basically, all the things you'd ever need health insurance for. It would allow states to apply for waivers to get out of some federal Obamacare rules. The regulations they hate are what make sure coverage actually addresses people's healthcare needs, including pre-existing conditions. Some states had high-risk pools before Obamacare, but a Kaiser Family Foundation study found them to be underfunded.

Trump marks his 100th day as president of the United States on April 29.

But House GOP leaders face the same problem that's plagued them for seven years of trying to concoct a plan for repealing Obama's 2010 law: The party's conservatives and moderates are at odds over how to do it.

House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the previous bill, the American Health Care Act, when it became clear there were not enough votes for it to pass because of opposition from members of the conservative Freedom Caucus.

That was a major embarrassment to Ryan and Trump, and House leaders are loath to bring a revised health care bill to the House floor unless they are convinced it would pass.

"It's hard to do".

"The 30-second spot and an accompanying social media push on Twitter portray all 12 lawmakers as steadfast supporters of a Trump-led effort to repeal and replace his predecessor's health care program", BuzzFeed's Henry J. Gomez reported.
