House Republicans near potential breakthrough on health care, source says

Trump himself was confident about the chances of Congress passing a health bill Tuesday in Wisconsin, telling CNN affiliate WTMJ: "We are going to have a big win soon, because we are going to have health care and that's gonna happen".

During a question-and-answer session in London, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) announced that Republicans are busy putting together a second attempt at dismantling the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), according to The Hill. He said that assuming the outline is translated into legislative text he backs and is added to the health care bill, he would now support the legislation and believes most of Freedom Caucus' three dozen members would also back it.

States also must prove, according to the document published by Politico, that "the objective of the requested waiver is to reduce premium costs, increase the number of persons with health care coverage, or advance another benefit to the public interest in the state, including the guarantee of coverage for persons with preexisting medical conditions". The law required, as of 2014, that all health care insurance providers cover everyone regardless of their existing conditions.

"We're in the midst of negotiating sort of finishing touches, because our members want to make sure that we lower premiums", Ryan said.

In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press, budget chief Mick Mulvaney said he was surprised at "the toxicity levels" that have divided the GOP over health care and hoped lawmakers' two-week break would prove "healing".

Sky hit by costs of Premier League, announces HBO deal
Overall group revenue rose by 5% to £9,641 million, while United Kingdom revenue increased by 4% to £6,410 million. Sky said it had added 106,000 new customers during its third quarter, or three months to the end of March.

Many Freedom Caucus members said they did not support the bill because it did not do enough to dismantle Obamacare. Under the so-called MacArthur Amendment, states could never allow insurers to price plans based on gender or to turn away people because of pre-existing conditions.

On the community rating issue, states would not be able to waive rules related to gender, age and health status unless the state has established its own high-risk pool or is participating in a federal pool. The current deal-making has centered on what triggers would allow states to opt out and how much additional funding would be provided. Remember, it took Obamacare 17 months.

A new Quinnipiac poll found that only 36% of American voters say Republicans in Congress should try again to repeal and replace Obamacare, while 60% say the Republicans should "move on".

News of the deal comes as President Donald Trump nears his 100th day in office, and just days before lawmakers return to Washington, D.C., to hash out the details of a bill funding the government.

The March Quinnipiac poll was conducted March 16-21, and consisted of 1,056 respondents and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
