Basic Problems Holding Up the GOP Obamacare Replacement Plan

Obamacare provides health care to millions of Americans who previously didn't have it.

The House Republicans' long-awaited plan to replace Obamacare was unveiled yesterday - a 123-page bill created to reduce the government's role in America's health care and cut costs, in sharp contrast to the widely criticized, more than 2,000-page bill that put Washington in charge in 2010.

Under a February 10 draft of the legislation made available to several news outlets, Republicans proposed offering an age-based refundable tax credit regardless of income level.

Four Republican senators warned Monday that they won't approve any healthcare plan that leaves large swaths of Americans without coverage - a key concern of former Obama administration officials and ACA advocates.

Democrats immediately criticised the plan, saying it would drive up the costs of health care.

Our bill also dismantles the ObamaCare taxes that have hurt patients, job creators and health-care providers.

"We are concerned that any poorly implemented or poorly timed change in the current funding structure in Medicaid could result in a reduction in access to life-saving health care services", they wrote. "How much is it going to cost taxpayers?"

Tottenham 3-2 Everton: Spurs hold on for win after Kane brace
Ronald Koeman acknowledged Tottenham were deserving winners against Everton on Sunday, saying Spurs were the "better team". This is one of the 38 games and I don't believe it's a different test to any other.

The president has described Obamacare, which was passed in 2010 and is seen as Mr Obama's signature domestic policy achievement, as "a disaster".

The Washington Post reports that separate House committees drafted the two bills which would no longer penalize Americans for not having insurance, but will encourage them to keep it by allowing insurers to impose a 30 percent surcharge for those who have a gap between health plans. "Under Obamacare, about 22 million people got healthcare and I think more or less over a few years, more than half of those will eventually lose that", he said.

"'ObamaCare is collapsing", President Trump said during his address to Congress last week, "and we must act decisively to protect all Americans". In Oregon, officials say it's too soon to tell how Republicans' plans may change the number of insured.

"How are you paying for this plan?" And people with pre-existing health conditions would continue to be protected.

Republicans said they don't have official estimates on those figures yet.

Alaska Gov. Bill Walker was at the White House recently and met with Health Secretary Tom Price. She said a person might save money under the Republican plan by buying bare-bones coverage.

Like other conservatives in Congress, Paul wants to make the case to the American people that there is a better, free-market way to get what they want.
