While the Medicaid aspect was a major talking point, others cited the general uncertainty about how many people it will affect and the total cost.
Republicans from Speaker Paul Ryan on down, who complained that insufficient study was given to Obamacare (despite more than a year of debate), rushed this bill through without scrutiny or a CBO score. "And I'm convinced that we're going to take the time to do it right".
"Speaker Ryan today said that he hoped that the Senate would improve the House bill", Collins said.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the House bill poses "more questions than answers about its consequences". The bill was approved before the Congressional Budget Office had a chance to evaluate costs or determine how many people likely would be shut out of the market.
Manhattan is where Trump made a name by transforming himself from real-estate developer into a celebrity businessman and now president During the campaign, Trump would fly thousands of miles back to New York City to sleep in his own bed, leaving the impression that he would make frequent trips home after he became president.
The Republican leadership required an early, rushed vote to ensure that they codified it before the entire bill got dissected and Americans learned how bad it is. Trump tweeted from his private golf course in central New Jersey, where he has stayed since late Thursday.
It's a distinct pivot from Trump's pledge to eliminate Obamacare and overhaul healthcare.
"You'll have better healthcare at a lower cost", President Trump said during his weekly address. Of the 23 Republicans who sit in districts won by Hillary Clinton last November, nine voted against the House bill and 14 voted in favor of it.
The current GOP plan would undo a mostly federally funded expansion of Medicaid coverage for low-income adults and allow insurance companies to charge far higher premiums on older Americans and some people with pre-existing conditions. "But it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable, and the sick and the infirm".
"It's part of the DNA of the United States to somehow maintain choice in health care insurance plans", said Howard Bauchner, editor in chief of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The bill would also roll back subsidies for individual insurance premiums, end federal payments for states to expand Medicaid for the poor and disabled, and cut more than $700 billion in taxes over 10 years.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price says cutting almost $1 trillion from Medicaid would give states freedom to tailor the program to fit their needs.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich couldn't keep a straight face when he was asked about the high-risk pools and whether the federal funding would be sufficient. It is only fair that we help some of those other people get basic health care.
But even with changes, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y/) says Democrats will vote it down. "The Senate will complete the job".
Supporters of the House measure argued though Obamacare enabled people to buy insurance, the deductibles actually put health care out of reach and the fact that carriers were pulling out of the state exchanges, many were left with no providers. For instance, the AARP is lobbying against changes to how insurers price plans that are sold to older Americans.
Unfazed by protesters shouting "Shame on you!", Trump and Republicans celebrated after the Bill passed the 216-vote threshold, with just one vote to spare - an impossible feat just days ago.
Sanders was also asked about insurers now filing rates for 2018 coverage and what a potential timetable for passing the bill through the Senate would be.
Conservative Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, drew boos Friday at a public meeting for his response to a constituent who said the House bill tells people on Medicaid to "accept dying". The comment traveled quickly on social media.
"Let me just tell you, this business of these [high]-risk pools, they're not enough", Kasich said on "State of the Union", and he started to laugh.
Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore city health commissioner and former emergency room doctor, related to NBC News the case of a young lawyer who died after a prolonged seizure.
The bill also requires the Trump administration to determine within 90 days whether North Korea is a state sponsor of terrorism. Seoul had ordered it closed after Pyongyang defied worldwide warnings and tested a long-range rocket.
