With So Many Obamacare Repeal Options In Play, Confusion Reigns

President Trump has thus far had little direct involvement in the bill

Not long ago, U.S. Sen.

Supporters of his efforts during the health care reform process, which include his former rival Sen.

When two more GOP senators - Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas - defected Monday night, the deal was undone.

Now that congressional Republicans have their chance, Johnson has emerged as an enigmatic, often contrarian voice in the Senate health care debate. "It's difficult to predict what the final product will look like", the aide said. Starting with President Trump, to Pence, McConnell, Ryan and the rest, there is not one leader among them. A large portion of those savings would come from Medicaid spending reductions, according to the CBO.

BARNES: I think that is the reason.

But GOP leadership doesn't have enough votes for either measure to pass.

The estimate indicated that 22 million less people will be insured 10 years from now than would be insured under current law. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Bill Cassidy, R-La., introduced a bill that lets states keep the ACA if they would like to. White House officials say they remain focused on trying to get a bill passed and have declined to delve deeply into their health care options if legislation fails.

Johnson appears undeterred by criticisms from the right, left or center. "His tweeting or his suggestions that he'll [support] primary [challengers against] members of his own party. he's not making any friends", Hudak said. A Washington Post-ABC News poll this month found that 50 percent of Americans preferred Obamacare and only 24 percent picked the Republican bill.

The President dispensed with diplomatic convention by holding a pull-aside meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Germany, without any US representative by his side - using Moscow's translator. They can only afford to have one of their senators defect and still prevail on a health bill. The number of uninsured would reach 15 million by 2018 before climbing further. The CBO is expected to issue a separate assessment of Cruz's proposal.

An influx of funding could mollify key moderate holdouts, but conservatives say they should be focused on policy changes instead. Because of the effect it would have on people who currently have health insurance under the ACA. That's the worst of all worlds.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the CBO numbers bore out what Democrats have been saying: that a repeal is a "horrible idea" and would "devastate the American health care system".

The encounter, at a dinner, did not just align Trump, an inexperienced operator on the international stage, against one of the most cunning players of the great game of diplomacy.

I believe that minimum wage should be raised but it should be in a way that time on the job and being a productive worker will earn more money not just give me a raise. Obamacare covers some 20 million Americans.

"The proposed cuts would leave millions of Americans, including 17.4 million poor seniors and people with disabilities, at risk of losing the care they need and their ability to live independently in their homes and communities", AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond said.

It is generally assumed that after getting on to the bill, and after enduring all that pain from Democrats, Republican senators would ultimately want to emerge with some sort of legislative victory.

Fortunately, others are praising the women for standing up against legislation that would be terrible for women's health care.

Johnson dismissed those concerns last week. "It is always devastating", the group said.

Both Trump and GOP legislators must detail how Obamacare is failing and underscore the failed promises Obama made to advance this bill.
