Trump took an active role as the House of Representatives worked on its own health-care bill, holding regular meetings with representatives at the White House as it made its way through numerous committees.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has pledged to have a vote on the legislation before July 4. First, they are anxious that if they eliminate it they'll be attacked as heartless come election time. But the immediate problem is getting rid of Obamacare's Medicaid expansion.

Equally contentious are the tax credits to help some people pay their premiums.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found the House bill would kick 23 million Americans off their health plans, and the legislation is unpopular with the public.

"The bill will encourage a lot more of those individuals to buy health insurance, ' Roy says. And the tax credits in the bill will also be better designed".

"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor", Johnson and Sens.

He wrote, "It remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need".

Colorado could lose $15 billion over the next decade if the Senate health care bill becomes law.

Medical coverage for multiple conditions - including maternity care and mental health - would not be required after 2019, with states having control regarding what is covered.

He's asking county lawmakers to ensure any Medicaid savings would be used for property tax cuts and road improvements.


The Nevada senator joins four other Republicans in expressing opposition to the draft bill as it is now written. Politico reports the Senate bill also cuts Medicaid funding more significantly than the House bill.

But Medicaid has been eating up an ever-larger share of federal spending. "The program has been a great success and a model for other states to follow".

As he has multiple times since the ACA's passage in 2010, Obama conceded that the bill was less than ideal and vowed to support any Republican-backed bill that "is demonstrably better than the improvements we made to our health care system, that covers as many people at less cost". If more than two republican senators vote against the bill, it will fail. NPR's Alison Kodjak begins our coverage. The Senate bill would repeal the tax in 2018 - a year later than the House bill. "Looks like we're keeping ObamaCare, not repealing it", Rand Paul complained. Avik Roy is a physician and founder of the conservative Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity.

Senate bill: States allowed to change what qualifies as an essential health benefit.

"This current draft doesn't get the job done", Cruz said.

KODJAK: The plan keeps some popular parts of Obamacare. "The only people who are better off under their bill are millionaires and health insurance companies".

AARP West Virginia also released new survey data Thursday regarding the House health care plan, the American Health Care Plan. That means funding will increase more slowly than cost of care, resulting in deep cuts to the program over time. And like the House bill, the Senate's legislation rolls back the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which helped give insurance to more than 11 million people. Fortunately, buried in the House bill was a way out of the morass.

The Democrats oppose it and several Republican senators have objected, making its passage uncertain.
