President Trump: Healthcare plan coming along beautifully

The Congressional Budget Office says the GOP proposal would result in about 14 million losing coverage in 2018 and a cumulative 24 million losing it by 2026. There is little mention of the Congressional Budget Office's past faulty predictions.

Democrats have been heavily critical of the new health care plan while conservative Republicans have described it as 'Obamacare-lite'. The actual number was 11.5 million.

But they need to come together, present a patient-based, market-based repeal and replace health care plan to the Senate and then force the Democrats there to explain to the country why they are the ones whose filibusters are preventing it from passing. There is little mention of the 6.5 million Americans who preferred to pay a penalty past year rather than purchase their own policies.

Ryan and GOP leaders, meanwhile, are waging a public relations offensive, furiously whipping support for the bill on Capitol Hill.

If this bill gets through, the big insurance companies will have free rein to charge older Americans a lot more. Trump will hold a healthcare-focused rally on Monday in Kentucky, the home state of Sen.

Under the House bill (call it Ryan/Trumpcare), that expansion would be phased out in 2020. "It is important to note that this bill is one of several reform measures being considered, and many more bills will surely follow". They do this either because they can't buy coverage through an employer or they don't qualify for federal entitlement programs like Medicare. And they want people to be able to buy their health insurance across state lines (like vehicle insurance and a million other things) instead of being forced to buy from their state's monopoly provider.

We refer to the Obamacare financial assistance as a "subsidy" in part because the amount fluctuates and is based on your income - the idea is to limit your health costs to a specific percentage of your income. Defunding Planned Parenthood, which Trumpcare would do, would eliminate crucial health care services for women and their kids, including (but certainly not limited to) anemia testing, cholesterol screenings, physical exams, cancer screenings, birth control education, STD tests, and prenatal care.

Asked again about Trump's promise to voters, the OMB director added, "Again, universal - the only way to get truly universal care is to throw people in jail if they don't have it". Blue Cross-Blue Shield of MI, for example, lost $68 million on individual policies previous year. Her monthly premium jumped from $365 a month to $809 a month with a $6,800 deductible. "It's better to just have the money up front to buy the plans".

Got more questions? We'll keep answering them as the GOP bill moves through Congress.

Dr. Manny Sethi operates a nonprofit, Healthy Tennessee, that conducts preventive health fairs across the state.

Premiums for people who bought their own health coverage rose an estimated 22 percent this year. The first error becomes magnified as the operation continues and doctors try to compensate for that first mistake.

"I'm 100 percent behind this", Trump told reporters after the meeting.

"It's going to be a huge rush - an inducement to drag in as many people as they can drag in, because the more they can drag in, the more federal dollars they can get", he says.

Our health system also responded by continuing to provide charity care. It was a point of pride.

But Trump made no mention of the impact that the Republican plan could potentially have on the millions of Americans who depend on the insurance they can access through Obamacare exchanges or the expanded coverage of Medicaid.
