Not only were voters opposed to the Republican plan, which has been called "Trumpcare", they would prefer Obamacare over the new bill.
And President Trump says "We're going to arbitrate, we're going to all get together, [and] we're going to get something done". One early headline from the New York Times sums it up this way: "Republican Health Proposal Would Direct Money from Poor to Rich".
The American Health Care Act (AHCA), Republicans' proposed law to replace Obamacare, would likely eliminate the provision of maternal care from health insurance plans. By most accounts, about 10-15 million Americans ultimately gained health insurance as a result of Obamacare, far less than hoped for, but a significant number nonetheless. Forty-nine percent of voters said they'd prefer the Affordable Care Act over the GOP's American Health Care Act.

And to appease moderates, tax credits would be increased for older Americans. And by 2026, according to the CBO, "an estimated 52 million people would be uninsured, compared with 28 million who would lack insurance that year under current law".

It establishes "more federalism" because it creates state-based, high-risk pools (with some federal funds) with the goal of keeping premiums down.
