Tom Price defends Medicaid cuts in new health care bill

Push to pin health care vote on vulnerable Republicans beginsMore

She said the House bill was hard to assess overall because it passed without an updated analysis by the Congressional Budget Office on how the measure would affect health care costs and coverage.

It took a monumental effort by Republicans to sell one another on the health-care bill that narrowly passed the House on Thursday. No timetable will be announced, McConnell said, and he added: "We don't anticipate any Democratic help at all, so it will be a simple majority vote situation".

"Progressives are going to hang this around the necks of every one of those Republicans", said Angel Padilla, co-founder of the liberal group Indivisible. The bill now goes to the Senate.

We have allies in Congress: men and women who work doggedly on our behalf to make sure that the Medicaid services utilized by more than 40% of people living with HIV in care are not only preserved, but expanded, and who are fighting to bring Americans the Medicare for All, single-payer health care system that we deserve.

Ending the Affordable Care Act will only increase the cost of health care in America.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a moderate Republican whose vote will be critical in getting a bill to Trump's desk, voiced concerns about potential higher costs for older people and those with pre-existing conditions.

Social Security Administration releases most popular baby names list
The only significant change in 2016 was that Alexander fell off the boys' list, and Elijah made the list for the first time. The force was strong for Kylo in 2016 as he soared 2,368 spots for the boys, from number 3,269 in 2015 to number 901.

The potential fallout crystallized nearly immediately. The Republican health plan also is expected to raise premiums for older people, who are more likely to have a pre-existing condition. And the math is still extremely daunting: House Freedom Conference radicals simply want a bill that doesn't appear to have 50 votes in the Senate. Kim raised more than US$43,000 [NZ$62,000] online over the last week for a possible run.

"What the Medicaid reforms really do is put pressure on the states to get costs under control", MacArthur said.

Some senators have already voiced displeasure with the health care bill that cleared the House of Representatives last week, with Republicans providing all the Yes votes in the 217-213 count.

Collins, along with fellow Republican Senators Rob Portman, of OH, and Lindsey Graham, of SC, have in recent days spoken out forcefully against parts of the House bill, with Graham saying it "needs to be viewed with suspicion" and Portman asserting that "it does not meet the test of stability" for people who rely on the "safety net" of Medicaid.

Next month, Democrats and Republicans face a showdown over a House seat in the Atlanta suburbs.

"The issues with prices and premiums going up, hopefully, people will see that we are trying to solve the problem", he said.

Outside groups prepared to launch an advertising campaign in the coming days to punish vulnerable Republicans in key states.

It would not, contrary to some reports, end coverage of pre-existing conditions or kick people off of their insurance.

For Idahoans on Medicaid, the bill would cut benefits for low-income people and allow states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, the architect of the bill, claimed that Republicans had received two CBO scores for the current bill during his appearance on ABC's "This Week".

Second, Democrats haven't exactly gotten their own house in order: The antics of House Democrats mocking their Republican counterparts during Thursday's vote was as premature a declaration of victory as what took place in the Rose Garden later that day. Outgoing Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, condemned the Republican measure as "woefully short".

Trump on Sunday largely remained out of public view at his secluded private golf club in Bedminster, N.J., and planned to return in the evening to Washington. "It's dead", Trump said, squeezing a smirk from the face of House Speaker Paul Ryan, who stood behind him. Democratic activists were planning many more demonstrations for next week's congressional recess.

During the daily White House briefing, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that the Trump administration expects the Senate to make some changes, "but we expect the principles and the main pillars of the healthcare bill, as it exists now, to remain the same".
