As House Speaker Paul Ryan tries to rally his party around the legislation, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is urging his fellow Republicans in the House to slow down and get it right. It eliminates the employer mandate requiring companies with 50 or more employees to offer health insurance.

Obamacare prohibits health plans from putting annual or lifetime dollar limits on most benefits we receive.

It's unlikely you'll lose the coverage you now have for 2017.

Again, insurance plans and premiums are finalized for 2017, so it's not likely you'll see immediate changes to your costs.

Rural voters are not thrilled about the repeal of Obamacare as they shouldn't be.

Given all this resistance, the law is far from a done deal.

But Trump officials are planning to use the president's bully pulpit to bully people into supporting the bill.

The bill is not a "repeal and replace" of Obamacare, but a re-packaging of the law, Amash said.

I have insurance under Obamacare. If you think letting people keep more of their own money and letting them do what they want with it is an entitlement, then you must believe this is Washington's money. If this law passes, that won't be a concern anymore.

The Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, helped 20m previously uninsured Americans get health insurance. The Republican proposal would repeal that penalty immediately.

The Republican plan ends the fines that people have to pay under the ACA if they don't buy coverage, the so-called individual mandate. Both remain unchanged in the Republican proposal.

These two planks in Trump's health platform are not in the American Health Care Act. Eleven million Americans could lose their insurance as a result. The Trump plan would freeze participation in the Medicaid expansion after 2020, making those who temporarily earn more and become ineligible permanently shut out of the current program.

She implied that Democrats would push for the expansion of Medicaid to cover more people, which 31 states plus the District of Columbia have chosen to do. Also, under Obamacare, these federal contributions are open-ended. It would also cap the federal monies available to the states for Medicaid based on a state's Medicaid population. Under Obamacare, older enrollees are allowed to be charged three times as much. They must pay the full cost of coverage.

"What you replace it with are market reforms", Paul said. The amount of the tax credit is based on income and the cost of coverage, but generally, the lower the income, the higher the tax credit.

Under the proposed bill, tax credits would start at $2,000 a year for individuals under age 30, rising to $4,000 for those of 60. Those subsidies are the same everywhere. Most new beneficiaries are low-income adults with no children living at home. "That will be a very hard thing to do".
