  • GOP Struggles With Obamacare Ahead of Trump Address

Governors like Snyder have raised concerns that the changes could undermine their efforts to expand Medicaid in their states and leave them stuck with a bigger share of the health care tab. "We have a plan that is going to be fantastic".

"People hate it, but now they see that the end is coming, and they're saying, 'Oh, maybe we love it, '" Trump said.

A draft of the House Republicans' bill to repeal the act, whichleaked on Friday, would indeed replace generous income-based subsidies with more conservative age-based tax credits, and roll back Medicaid spending, closely mirroring the suggestions they made in their earlier policy brief.

Trump also claimed that Barack Obama's approval ratings rose only because he was leaving office, a phenomenon he said was also affecting public sentiment about the former president's signature law.

Health care is already Trump's problem because the President already signed an executive order weakening the ACA, and Republicans have already put the wheels in motion to repeal the law.

Donald Trump told Howard Stern he'd "get away with" going backstage where women were changing during his pageant.

"It's an unbelievably complex subject", Trump told the Republican and Democratic governors at the White House.

National Governors Association (NGA) Chairman Gov. Terry McAuliffe speaks with reporters after leaving a health care reform meeting during the NGA's Winter Meeting in Washington, Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017. "I think you'll like what you hear".

Even if the Affordable Care Act were to remain intact, upwards of 670 rural hospitals across the country are at risk of shutting their doors, according to findings from iVantage Health Analytics. "I'm just going to listen to what the man has to say".

"We must work together to save Americans from Obamacare - you people know that and everyone knows that - to create more competition and to bring down prices substantially", Trump told insurers at a meeting at the White House.

Trump throughout his campaign publicly pledged to quickly kill and replace Obamacare, while never getting specific about what the alternative would look like. Trump's plans include deputizing local law enforcement officers to act as immigration agents.

Rural hospitals in expansion states, running on extremely tight margins, saw a significant improvement to their bottom lines, and provided a benefit to the estimated 62 million Americans living in rural areas, many of whom received health coverage under the ACA for the first time. The governor said he is not seeking a work requirement now in part because there are ongoing discussions about whether that should be added to the program nationally, and because he was focused on expanding services to help address the opioid epidemic.

The Medicaid program, which provides health insurance to the poor and disabled, is the largest single source of federal funding to the states, amounting to more than half-a-trillion dollars.

"We need to fix it for the American people, regardless of whether it would be better politically for us to show how wrong it is".
