Ryan: Health Bill Owes More to Older Americans

U.S. Sen. was a keynote speaker at Dallas County Republican Reagan Day Dinner

"We think that we should be offering even more assistance than what the bill now does", Ryan, R-Wis., said in a "Fox News Sunday" interview, in which he confirmed that House leaders are eyeing a Thursday vote on its passage.

Ryan continues to press for his Obamacare replacement bill, despite conservatives who have derided the effort as "Obamacare Lite" or 'Obamacare 2.0'.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said he and two other conservative leaders - Sen.

Asked whether the current G.O.P. bill would hurt his constituents, Trump acknowledged that "a lot of things aren't consistent" between the Republican plan and his message during the transition, when he promised to provide "insurance for everybody".

(President Trump) "Now every single one is a yes".

Everton fans refused to turn on the 23-year-old and instead roared when his name was announced over the speakers before the game. The Toffees had been confident the Belgium global would sign a new five-year deal thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price on Sunday dismissed the proposal for a clean repeal, arguing doing so would put "vulnerable people at risk".

"These changes definitely strengthen our number, but also show that President Trump's all-in now", House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., who attended the meeting, told reporters.

"We have a president who is rolling up his sleeves...."

Ryan has been on a media and PR blitz the past week to sell the bill to conservative voters and their lawmakers.

He's powered through a politically troubling report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that estimates that more people could be uninsured by this bill than became insured under Obamacare. And I promise you, in a year, the insurance markets will still be unraveling ... "We believe we should have even more assistance. for that person in their 50s and 60s because they experience higher health care costs", Ryan told Fox News Sunday. But he allowed the additional assistance was one of several House revisions to be discussed in advance of Thursday's vote, along with possible changes to help low-income people more with tax credits and require able-bodied Medicaid recipients to meet work requirements.

Then there are the Tea Party Republicans, who'd like to abolish entitlement programs and certainly don't want tax credits for lower-income people of the kind in the Republican plan.

Without providing any substantive details, Trump said he was able to achieve commitments of support, and declared Obamacare 'dead'. Heller's spokesman Mac Abrams said Friday that the senator said he can't support the bill as the House GOP has crafted it. They want to halt the continuance by the end of the fiscal year. "If this bill were ideal, if it was the greatest thing for Democrats and Republicans, we wouldn't get one Democrat vote", he claimed. "You have to stop them".

"We've talked to so many folks in the House of Representatives to try to see what their discomfort level is, if they have any, with this piece of legislation", he said. "But before I can do that - I would have loved to have put it first, I'll be honest - there is one more very important thing that we have to do: We are going to repeal and replace the awful, disastrous Obamacare".

"We are making fine-tuning improvements to the bill to reflect people's concerns, to reflect people's improvements", he said.

In a Facebook post Saturday night, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., said he couldn't vote for the bill, stressing a need "to take our time and to get this right".
