President Trump: Changes to GOP health bill will garner support

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. speaks with reporters as Democrats criticize the Republican health care plan at the Capitol in Washington Tuesday March 14 2017

The changes that House GOP members are working on this week are expected to address these concerns by providing more generous tax credits for older, low-income Americans, so that they won't lose care once the Obamacare subsidies are repealed. I am 100 percent behind this", Trump said, before looking around the room and saying: "All of these no's, or potential no's, are all yes'es. They are people of every age in every Nebraska community. Under the Republican plan to replace Obamacare, premiums would increase for approximately 454,000 Floridians between the ages of 50 to 64 who now receive Obamacare tax credits. "It's fixable, but it's going to take a lot of work", he said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Several participants later confirmed to reporters that those who attended the meeting indeed are now a "yes".

Whether they can will soon become clear.

Some on the right agree Texas is getting a raw deal. In order for it to pass the House, there can be no more than 21 Republican "no" votes.

Meadows and two other Republican opponents of the bill, Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas, met at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on Saturday "negotiating with the president's team, trying to fix this bill", Cruz told CBS's Face the Nation. "He's the one who was helped negotiate changes to this bill with members from all over our caucus", he continued.

The AARP also cautioned that older workers hoping to leave an employer's coverage to launch their own small businesses might be afraid to do so if the plan is enacted.

"They need to hear from their constituency", she said.

If Trump is offering changes to mollify conservatives, it's unclear whether that risks losing votes on the other end of the spectrum.

The bill was sent to House Energy and Commerce Committee on Thursday. Another 6.9 percent or 310,557 kids are insured through CHIP, which provides low-priced health care coverage to children of moderate income families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid.

Passage in the House is only one challenge.

The Republicans are not "doing this behind the scenes and just bringing some bill to the floor and making people vote for it". Yoho's proposal would return "federal requirements on health insurance plans back to the legal regime before the ACA's mandates and penalties came into force, so we have time to work on replacing the ACA with effective reform" and let insurers provide plans outside the Obamacare mandates without being penalized by the federal government. Approximately 9 million Americans used to purchase insurance, while 3 million Americans bought coverage through the state-based marketplaces.
