ObamaCare repeal would leave 32M without insurance, cut deficit by $473B

Christopher Halloran

But watering down realistic conservative proposals would mean leaving Americans stuck with the same old Obamacare, just with a different name. "He's saying 'Death, death death!'", Trump said.

During the 10 minutes cameras were allowed, at the start of a two-hour lunch, Trump promised "tremendous competition" in insurance markets if Republican bills become law. Tammy Baldwin said she wants "to work across the aisle to make health care more affordable and accessible".

In his remarks, Trump demanded the Republican senators remain in Washington for the August recess until a bill is passed. "It is now time to seek bipartisan solutions to improve the health care system for all people".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to go ahead with a vote early next week on a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, despite indications it will fail after the defections on Tuesday of at least three Republican senators. But, let's be very clear about what the president is proposing and where his path would lead. The savings in both plans come from rolling back Obamacare's expansion of the Medicaid program for the poor and ending or limiting subsidies to help people purchase insurance.

As my old drinking buddy Bob Dylan would say, "The times they are a-changin'".

"We can repeal it, but the best is repeal and replace", Trump said.

"There is a large majority in our conference that want to demonstrate to the American people that they intend to keep the commitment they made in four straight elections to repeal Obamacare".

It has been brought up by the Republican leadership as an alternative to the stalled Better Care Reconciliation Act, a GOP plan designed to repeal and replace the Obamacare.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Jerry Moran of Kansas also said they would vote against the bill.

Anastassia Zinke of the Indianapolis Congregation Action Network, another group that had been staging die-ins and protests around the area, agreed with Torres.

Such a bill might be dead on arrival in the House - but that's the status of Trumpcare's doomed fate anyway, with voters furious at its prospect of shrinking insurance rolls by millions. It would also see premiums rise, and likely force private insurers to abandon the individual market.

"By threatening cost sharing reductions, the Trump Administration has set the wheels in motion for increased premiums", said Webber.
