Trump slams Affordable Care Act, touts replacement in meeting with health insurers

But it seems equally plausible at this point that we'll discover that Republican health-care reform is just the oxymoron that so many suspect. Thornberry has long called for the U.S.to increase its spending on its aging military equipment.

What Trump and the Republicans don't realize is that the blame Obama card has expired.

"We were thrilled with the initial steps to stabilize the market", he said.

Trump's remarks came on a day when he met with state politicians who were concerned about constituents losing their health coverage if the USA government repeals the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as "Obamacare".

"For months, President Trump and the GOP-led Congress have left patients, hospitals, behavioral health providers, and local economies in crippling uncertainty", Kennedy said Monday.

The founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said the Republican Party can not compromise on its promise to fully repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare.

"We will seek to cover as many as we can and are compassionate about the folks that are receiving coverage right now and want to make sure that we continue to do so", he said.

Trump regularly has said Obamacare is a failure that must be repealed and replaced.

But the White House has yet to release details on a replacement plan or throw its support behind various replacement proposals being floated on Capitol Hill by Republican lawmakers.

The analysis prepared by the health research firm Avalere Health and the consulting firm McKinsey and Company doesn't offer nationwide projections for declines in coverage if the House Republican plan were approved by Congress as a replacement for the Affordable Care Act.

Assassination: Malaysia detains two women, man
Scientists have been speculating about what substance could have killed Kim Jong Nam so quickly and without being ingested. It is still not known why the 45-year-old self-exile from North Korea was killed or by whom, or why he was in Malaysia.

"I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject", Trump said in a meeting with the nation's governors.

Federal cuts envisioned for Pennsylvania's Medicaid plan would cost the state at least $2 billion dollars by 2020, opening a budgetary hole that would be impossible to fill, state Secretary of Human Services Ted Dallas said Monday.

A sobering report to governors about the potential consequences of repealing the Obama-era health care law warns that federal spending cuts probably would create funding gaps for states and threaten many people with the loss of insurance coverage.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat and the chairman of the governors association, said plans to fund Medicaid expansion through new block grants would be a nonstarter for many states.

Republican governors in at least 10 USA states are calling for dramatic changes to Medicaid, the health insurance program for the poor jointly administered by the federal government and the states.

Last month, Snyder was among a group of governors talking with USA senators about reforming the Affordable Care Act.

"You're a Republican, you've been running to repeal Obamacare, they put a repeal bill in front of you..."

Meanwhile, efforts to weaken Medicaid are already facing deep resistance from governors, including some Republicans who hail from states that expanded the program. It also said states would be given more flexibility in rolling back Medicaid and administering the program.

The President's contradictory remarks made it clear that the White House still has no replacement plan for the ACA.

Their calculation is that after years of promising to repeal Obamacare, Republican lawmakers won't be willing to vote "no" on a bill that could actually kill the law, even if it doesn't meet their criteria for reforming the health care system.
