White House pushes uncertain bid to revive health care bill

Yet GOP lawmakers and aides to party leaders, conservatives and moderates alike were skeptical that the House would vote next week on the health legislation. [States] are going to be reliant on whoever that is, even under a Republican regime. Despite last month's Trumpcare disaster and the growing popularity of Obamacare, Republicans have kept working on zombie Trumpcare, and now they seem to think they have the next plan they're going to fail with, thanks to a deal between House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows and Tuesday Group co-chair Tom MacArthur.

The proposal retains numerous popular consumer protections of the Affordable Care Act, including ensuring that people with pre-existing medical conditions can not be refused coverage or charged more.

A Freedom Caucus member expressed his doubts over Meadows' hopes for AHCA negotiations when speaking with IJR on Thursday morning. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J., co-chairman of the moderate Tuesday Group, discussed over the recess a potential amendment that was created to build support from hesitant lawmakers on both sides of the GOP political spectrum. Greg Walden of OR and Leonard Lance of New Jersey, made it clear to people in their respective town hall meetings that they oppose any effort to remove the current protections for people with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes and cancer.

"Republicans are trying to say their amendment will cover people with pre-existing conditions―because, first, the legislation still claims those people can't be denied coverage, and second, because there will be high-risk pools for those people if insurance costs dramatically go up for them", the Huffington Post article states.

The report noted that before the passage and phase-in of Obamacare, insurers would underwrite, or evaluate people's health, and raise premiums or decline coverage accordingly. After the loss, Trump targeted the Freedom Caucus on Twitter.

In addition, states could obtain waivers to an Obama prohibition against insurers charging sick customers higher premiums than consumers who are healthy - a change critics argue would make insurance unaffordable for many.

On March 24, Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the Republican health care bill from consideration after it became clear that it did not have enough votes to pass the legislation, in part because of near-unified opposition from the Freedom Caucus. Donovan, an opponent of the original Republican health care bill, said the proposed amendment "really doesn't address the concerns that I had". Politico published a document it said represented the Republicans' new proposal. Just this week, Sen.

And Democrats - whose votes will be needed to keep the government open - will have their own demands, most important billions of dollars to lower out-of-pocket spending for low-income Americans purchasing health coverage on the Affordable Care Act's online marketplaces.

Public opinion has also shifted since the repeal effort began in earnest ― and it has shifted decisively against Republicans and their cause. They also can be more expensive for patients in those pools, as well as for taxpayers funding them.

Interestingly, the government shutdown drama and health care could be directly linked.

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.

White House officials plan to bring the American Health Care Act, the Republican alternative to Obamacare that has been presumed dead, to a vote as early as next Wednesday, according to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.
