What's involved in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act

Both Democrats and Republicans are expected to try to reshape legislation that dismantles key provisions of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) attempted to offer an amendment to the legislation that would have delayed the markup in the Ways and Means Committee until next week, arguing it's unreasonable to hold a committee vote just two days after the bill was introduced.

Congress is aiming to pass the bill, which was unveiled on Monday, within the next few weeks.

GOP House members are still divided on what to do with the Affordable Care Act.

Ryan's qualm, in particular, is with the Obamacare mandate that requires insurance companies charge premiums to the elderly no more than three times higher than the young.

Donald Trump is finally making real, if mixed, progress on his longtime promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.

I for one will be asking my representatives and senators if they support the Republican plan to defund Planned Parenthood. Democrats, meanwhile, have slammed the bill and claimed that an informed debate is impossible without knowing the cost of the reforms.

"This is an important first step toward restoring choice and affordability to health care for all Americans", Buchanan said in a statement.

How proposed healthcare bill could impact Texas.

. The plan's advocates say the credit will be between $2,000 and $14,000 a month "for low- and middle-income individuals and families who don't receive insurance through work or a government program".

The new provision added overnight by ending government subsides to buy health insurance and instead offering tax credits also lends uncertainty to healthcare advocates who are already anxious about how low income families could be impacted.

"The Republican health plan would make America's economic chasm worse".

Who is speaking up for the bill?

"This is what we've been dreaming about doing", he told reporters.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president was "in full sell mode".

"These credits have always been part of the conservative health care reform ideal, supported by arch-conservatives in Congress as well as right-leaning think tanks going back for decades", according to a release from House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
