Conservatives rally at Capitol for strict repeal of Obamacare
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, speaks with House Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Washington, during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.Ryan and House Republicans have proposed a woefully inadequate health care plan.
"The press is, as you know, in many cases I call it the fake news, the fake news".
House Speaker Paul Ryan said he's willing to "make some modifications" but he also wants to avoid a prolonged legislative fight over the GOP plan that could end up with nothing getting done. That meeting - a prelude to bringing the legislation to the House floor - is expected to produce amendments aimed at securing votes. It is nothing more than a gift to the rich and a disaster for the rest of us.
The Kentucky senator told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that the Republican-led Congress should repeal Obamacare in its entirety.
Cantor said that if the GOP cannot get health care reform passed, that could be a death knell for other items at the top of Trump's agenda.
The GOP bill as written offers a fixed tax credit for low- and middle-income Americans that rises by age.
"I can not vote for any bill that keeps premiums rising", Cruz said, echoing the concerns of other hard-line lawmakers who want the legislation to undo more of the Affordable Care Act's insurance mandates.
Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), who represents a suburban Philadelphia district that has been heavily targeted by Democrats, said in a Facebook post that he was most concerned that the legislation would roll back efforts to prevent and treat opioid abuse.
Canada minister addresses influx of asylum-seekers from US
Canadians have no right to enter the United States, experts note, regardless of what passports or other documents they have. Leslie said Kelly is the first of several Trump cabinet members who will visit Canada, though he would not elaborate.
Indian billionaires on Forbes's list of world's richest people
Herb Simon , owner of the Indiana Pacers, is No. 717 on the list with $2.8 billion in net worth, up from $2.3 billion in 2014. South Florida is home to some very rich people, including Carnival Corp. chairman Micky Arison of Miami and the new U.S.
Trump won the support of several conservative House members on Friday when he agreed to make changes to the Medicaid portion of the bill, including giving states the option of instituting a work requirement on childless, able-bodied adults who receive the benefit.
That's not freedom. It's not even adequate access. He also says some changes have been made to the bill.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said she would not vote for the measure without additional changes to provide more aid to older Americans.
The House plan has also received criticism from Republican senators, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said Sunday he wouldn't vote for it as is.
Rand Paul said the House GOP health care bill is unlikely to pass in Congress because there are "enough conservatives that don't want 'Obamacare lite'". "These next few days could define us for years to come", he said. It is not even a health care bill.
He encouraged fellow Republicans pushing for support from House colleagues to "remind members that attacks from the Left are nothing new, and rarely accurate".
Conservatives said they are angry that the House GOP leadership's replacement plan includes federal tax credits for lower and middle income earners as well as other tradeoffs such as retaining the costly provision to cover pre-existing medical conditions. Trump's plan, for instance, would cut $5.8 billion from the National Institutes of Health, an 18 percent drop for the $32 billion agency that funds much of the nation's research into what causes different diseases and what it will take to treat them. Asked about the likelihood of passage, Ryan said, "I feel very good about it, actually". "I believe that the real negotiation begins when we stop them. So, that is something that I think in Congress you'll see probably some changes".
Your Call: Neil Gorsuch's judicial philosophy
Judge Neil Gorsuch, 49, is a respected, highly credentialed and conservative member of the Denver-based 10th U.S. But Democrats argue that Gorsuch's nomination is different given Trump's repeated attacks on judges.
Judge Gorsuch a worthy successor to Scalia
The ninth seat on the Supreme Court has been vacant since Associate Justice Antonin Scalia died unexpected in February 2016. Yet he, like Feinstein, argued that "two wrongs never make a right" and said Gorsuch should get a fair hearing.
