Americans dislike GOP's, Trump's plan on health care

House Speaker Paul Ryan huddled at the White House with Vice President Mike Pence, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to discuss the legislative agenda, a Ryan spokesman said. And, though House Speaker Paul Ryan mourned Friday that Obamacare will remain the law "for the foreseeable future", his caucus has hated it for too long for their dream of its death to entirely go away.

There is no shortage of good ideas, and no shortage of innovation in Washington's health-care industry.

"I guess I'm just not sure what the expectation was", said Katrina Pierson, spokeswoman for America First Policies. To them, the failure of the GOP plan supported by President Donald Trump - the American Health Care Act - was proof that the public will reject any plan that reduces coverage.

Although the American Health Care Act, or AHCA, failed to attract enough votes to advance last week, the ideas contained within the bill have always been popular with conservatives and will likely be introduced again in the future, according to the authors of a new policy brief on the proposed legislation from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. And they held it in 1976, paving the way for Jimmy Carter to govern with a filibuster-proof majority. They took out a second mortgage to pay the bills.

Publicly, Trump on Monday greeted female business owners to a round-table discussion on jobs and later joined with Republican lawmakers and members of his Cabinet as he signed into law bills focused on overturning Obama era regulations.

Under extreme pressure from conservative activists, House Republican leaders and the White House have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

A small but growing group of liberals - some of them leaders in the Democratic Party - are already pushing their colleagues to embrace a more progressive vision for health care.

DesJarlais says the Freedom Caucus members are reaching out to different factions of lawmakers to try to find a path forward. The most obvious vehicle would be Medicaid, which provided an existing structure to extend health insurance to millions more Americans. Understandably, a lot of sicker people who are more expensive to take care of came into the system.

Tanaka, who had baseball's lowest ERA in spring training, was tagged for a career-worst seven earned runs in 2 2/3 innings. A first-time All-Star in 2015 who lost an AL-leading 19 times last season, Archer limited NY to two runs and seven hits.

While some House Republicans remain focused on "repeal and replace", a new conversation in Congress is starting on a different "R" word when it comes to Obamacare: fix. He made no mention of working with Democrats, saying he's encouraged some Republicans who had opposed the measure last week now indicate they want to support it.

"I don't want to become a factionalized majority. I think it was an unforced error", said Arkansas Republican Rep. Steve Womack.

Ryan proclaimed: "We are going to work together and listen together until we get this right". Finally, when critics still refused to get behind it, he asked Ryan to withdraw the bill without a vote. He acknowledged insurance companies would like to know what Congress is going to do. "That CHIP reauthorization.is actually attached to the Affordable Care Act, so when you start to amend that, that will actually link back into the (ACA) to start changing some of the provisions". You can decide that you don't want to have health insurance, and people make that decision, but you will pay the consequences of that if something happens to you. The entire state of Oklahoma, for instance, has only one marketplace insurer, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma.

State insurance commissioner John Doak said in an interview he remains "cautiously optimistic" the insurer will continue providing insurance to about 140,000 individuals. Imperfect though it is, at least we know that millions of our friends, family and fellow citizens still have Obamacare and the precious health care that it provides. She said they are waiting to see what Congress does with health care.

Massie, a conservative who is not a member of the Freedom Caucus, tweeted last week he would vote "hell no" on the Republican bill because it didn't really repeal Obamacare, a condition for his support.

That sentiment was echoed by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The big problem that Republicans are grappling with is that Obamacare killed the free market health care system in 2009. Not even a majority of Republicans liked the terrible plan cooked up by the House, which would have left 24 million people uninsured over the next decade.
