House passes bill to deny health insurance tax credits to illegal immigrants

Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, both R-Utah, have key roles in rewriting the contentious law - Hatch as Senate Finance Committee chairman and Lee as a member of Senate Republicans' working group on health care.

The GOP leader is being aided and abetted by President Donald Trump's effort to pull the props out from under the ACA by creating enough uncertainty about future federal support enabling recipients to pay their premiums that insurance companies either drop coverage or announce massive premium increases.

"What we have is something very, very incredibly well-crafted", Trump said of his party's proposal, adding, "It's going to be an unbelievable victory, actually, when we get it through the Senate".

In an attempt to avoid the heavy backlash and ensure disagreements in the conference don't spill out into plain - as was the case in the House GOP's fight over the American Health Care Act - the Republican Senate majority is crafting the bill largely behind closed doors. And when I said, let's do this, let's go out, just short little shots for each one of us and let's say how good this plan is - we don't have to talk about this unbelievable - wasn't it unbelievable? Patty Murray's request that he hold a hearing on health care legislation being written in secret by a panel of 11 male Republican senators.

"There's a group of guys in a backroom somewhere that are making these decisions", she said.

At the beginning of the lunch, which was open to the press for a few minutes, Trump said that the Senate is coming up with "a phenomenal" bill.

China has also scheduled a launch of the core module of its manned space station in 2019 that will get into operation by 2022. Specifically, Insight will seek out new black hole activity by searching the Milky Way for celestial bodies that emit X-rays.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says the House measure would leave 23 million more Americans without health insurance in a decade because of its deep cuts to health-care spending including Medicaid for low-income Americans. "Take care of healthcare, figure out who you want to cover and then take the Obamacare taxes, put it in tax reform and address it all in tax reform", the Louisiana senator said. The president's maladministration could include lax enforcement of the individual mandate to purchase health insurance, inadequate efforts to enroll more people in coverage and other gratuitous subversions of the finely tuned system Obamacare sought to create.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also declined to say whether the Senate would hold a vote on the bill before the July 4 recess, as some in Senate leadership have aspired to do.

Sources at the meeting told Politico that Republicans "risk getting savaged in the 2018 midterms" if they failed to repeal Obamacare, after campaigning against it for seven years.

Republicans were not part of the process because they refused to take part.

At the start of the lunch, Trump told the lawmakers their healthcare bill would need to be "generous" and "kind". "So we have kept our promises".

"I don't think so", Hatch said. Lamar Alexander, Colorado Sen. Susan Collins of ME, but could end up alienating conservatives, such as Sen. House Republicans ultimately passed the bill without a score from the CBO could conduct important analysis, including what the bill would cost and how many people would be covered under it.
