'No palace intrigue,' Ryan says of health bill

The House GOP's vote counter, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, also attended the meeting and said the changes give Republicans "the best chance" to get the legislation to the Senate.

And moderate Republicans, who were concerned about too drastic of a roll back of Medicaid, won't be sold by the changes that further exacerbate a reduced Medicaid program that the poorest citizens rely upon.

Speaking on Fox News, Gary Cohn, director of the White House National Economic Council, said: "We will see what the score is, in fact in the past, the CBO score has really been meaningless".

The truth is younger participants would probably not participate, and seniors could not afford to participate in the later years of the bill, which means at least 14 million non-participants in the first allay, and in the later years nearly double. "I watch, I say, 'That's not the bill we're passing'".

Influential conservative media outlets in the Trump administration, including Breitbart News and Newsmax, have come out in opposition to the legislation. And the third is separate legislation that would do things Republicans have been advocating for many years, such as imposing caps on medical malpractice damages and selling health insurance across state lines. The CBO's current director, Kevin Hall, was appointed by Republicans in 2015.

Editor's note: The following is a roundup of archival stories related to the proposed American Health Care Act and the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare.

The Congressional Budget Office says the GOP plan would result in 24 million fewer people holding insurance a decade from now, complicating the task before GOP leaders who want to keep their promise to repeal Obamacare and move on to tax reform.

The House Budget Committee has voted to advance the troubled Republican health care bill.

8 percent to 10 percent lower for a 40-year-old. The new bill would need to be able to not only help more people but also take the pressure off other Americans that Obamacare put on them.

The Republican answer to Obamacare has been analysed and though it will save the government money, it will likely leave millions without health insurance, a report has found.

Under the plan revealed last week by House Speaker Paul Ryan, the most vulnerable Americans would feel the carnage the most.

Dean Heller (R-Nev.) said Friday that he can't support the bill in its current form, making him one of roughly a dozen Senate Republicans who have expressed serious reservations about the bill and one of three that have said outright that they wouldn't vote for it in its current form, along with moderate Sen.

Republican Representative Jim Jordan of OH, a founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said it does not go far enough to meet Republicans' promise to kill Obamacare.

The hope - described as a "pretty hard target" by Rep. Bradley Byrne - is for the AHCA to go to a final House vote on Thursday. He said on Tuesday that the bill "would be open to amendment" when it reaches the Senate.

"This will basically reverse all the gains in coverage that we've achieved since 2014 when Medicaid was expanded in 31 states across the country, including here in Michigan where it's known as the Healthy Michigan plan", Ayanian said. The Republican plan would lower costs for the young, while raising them for older Americans.
