GOP rep says town hall-protests may stop Obamacare repeal

Voters split on support for ObamaCare poll

Republican leaders insist they are on track to repeal and replace as much of the Affordable Care Act as they can this spring under a fast-track budget procedure that allows them to bypass a Democratic filibuster. Asked about those on Medicaid who already work - the Kaiser Family Foundation has estimated that almost 60 percent of adult, non-disabled Medicaid enrollees do - Buck said he wants to study the issue more.

While admitting that predicting what will happen with the ACA is one of the toughest legislative calls in memory, Goldman said ahead of the House Republicans' draft bill release that "none of the several approaches that have been floated appear able to win a majority in the Senate".

The bill attempts to encourage healthy people to buy insurance by mandating that they can not be charged more for existing medical conditions, or, once they get sick, if they maintain continuous coverage.

Despite the law's apparent increase in popularity, just last week the CEO of Aetna said in an interview that the law is in a "death spiral" because younger, healthier people have dropped out while premiums continue to climb.

"This isn't a replacement, it's a recipe for disaster", Sen. They have vowed to unveil legislation to begin doing so next month.

At the same time, Republicans who disapprove of Obamacare are sorely divided over whether President Trump and congressional Republicans should get rid of the law entirely or modify the law to make improvements.

It is uncertain how their plans will be affected by this week's town halls during Congress' recess where GOP lawmakers were confronted by noisy defenders of Obama's law.


The plan would also scale back the ACA's Medicaid expansion, which provides coverage to roughly 12 million low-income people, according to Bloomberg's report, shifting pressure onto states to find funding streams to pay for the residents who received coverage under the expansion. Medicaid is a pool of federal and state funded tax dollars that helps cover insurance for poor people.

Insurers will likely want to discuss shoring up the individual market and how it may benefit their long-term plans.

Under the 2010 law, people are required to have health coverage or risk fines from the IRS - a penalty usually deducted from a taxpayer's refund.

Subsidies would no longer be based on income, but on the recipient's age.

-Let insurers charge 30 percent higher premiums for people who have let their coverage lapse.

This is the first time more people support the ACA than oppose it, and these findings show public support for the health care law is escalating quickly. This would, in turn, help every American who needs coverage that does not get it through their place of work.

This would in part be offset by $100 billion in "state innovation" grants over nine years to go towards taking care of higher-cost patients. The thirty or so member House Freedom Caucus voted as a block to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act before the party even has a replacement in hand.
