Right now, Republicans are fighting each other, while Democrats sit on the sidelines. "Just so you understand", Trump told Carlson.
He added: "The House has put forward a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare [the Affordable Care Act], based on the principles I outlined in my joint address".
"I'm 100 percent behind this", Trump told reporters after the meeting.
"And we think the courts are not going to stop him from doing that?"
Republicans easily swatted down Democratic proposals to allow amendments in the full House that they hoped would embarrass Republicans, such as deleting provisions that would reduce coverage or cut Medicaid. "And then we get on to tax reduction, which I like".
Now, the big question: What do House Republicans do?
The president said the Republican bill to repeal and replace key parts of the Affordable Care Act "is a great plan". That figure underscored the potential political impact of the party's next move.
We've heard opponents of the GOP Obamacare replacement bill continously - and tiresomely - quote the CBO report on how many Americans will lose their insurance if the bill becomes law.
Harrington Cheltenham's golden girl due to Power surge
And after two blank days to start the Cheltenham Festival, it was clear to see the weight lifted even after one victor yesterday. O'Neill said: "It was his first run proper of the season, he has no miles on the clock and he'll improve a ton on that".
"This bill, if passed in its current form, will disproportionately hurt older adults between the ages of 50 and 64 by dramatically increasing insurance premiums to unaffordable rates". They also say a tax credit to help people pay medical costs is too generous, and they want to terminate all of Obama's insurance requirements, including mandatory coverage of specified services like drug counseling. It is estimated $880 billion the changes could cut from the program between now and 2026.
Speaking on Fox News, Gary Cohn, director of the White House National Economic Council, said: "We will see what the score is, in fact in the past, the CBO score has really been meaningless".
In a joint letter sent Thursday to the leaders of the House and Senate, the governors of Ohio, Michigan, Nevada and Arkansas argued that the "current version" of the American Health Care Act in the House hurts states. That left House moderates angry over being asked to take a politically risky vote for legislation that seems likely to be significantly altered.
For example, if a person's coverage lapses from non-payment, Baldwin says an insurance company will have the ability to deny them coverage. This was called the "individual mandate". The CBO said a total of 24 million more people would be uninsured in 2024 under that scenario. The American Psychological Association asserted that Congress should enact no reform legislation unless it ensures health insurance coverage-including mental health and substance use treatment-for at least as many people as are covered now.
OH added 700,000 people to its Medicaid rolls under the expansion, which is mostly paid for with federal funds.
It was unclear what transpired in the White House meeting to bring concerned conservatives on board, but Trump signaled that they discussed alterations to the legislation. You have conservative groups, you have other groups. Without most people on board, the House can not even get it to the Senate to even consider.
Republicans in Washington working to overhaul the Affordable Care Act say their strategy consists of "three buckets".
