Trump takes up health care with Rand Paul, on golf course

As with the original version of the AHCA, Republicans in the House can't count on getting any Democratic votes for this iteration of the ACA replacement plan. And he has turned to making enemies out of former supporters among Republicans in Congress, even as Democrats keep him at arm's length. If there were no community rating provision, health plans would also be able to charge a chronically ill person a lot more than they would today.

President Donald Trump doesn't like to lose.

But some conservative leaders say the tensions between Trump and the Freedom Caucus could be fleeting because the president may eventually need them to enact legislation in the coming months.

Where is the White House?

"This is an enormous, significant defeat, but I don't think the war on the ACA is over yet", said Gerald Kominski, PhD, director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

Key members of the administration, including Vice President Mike Pence, invited a group of moderate Republicans known as the "Tuesday Group" to the White House.

White House met with the Freedom Caucus (hardline conservatives) same day and implied they'd just approve any state who wants a waiver. We will not see our insurance premiums go lower until the government steps in and puts limits on that industry and puts a cap on them, or until they offer a public option which would then strip money away from the insurance companies, the private insurance companies until they are forced to lower their rates so that people will once again buy the crap that they've been selling to us for decades.

"Hypothetically if you repealed [the regulations] at the federal level it would have no impact in NY because of state law", Faso said.

House Republicans also can't decide whether to move on from health care.

The 41-year-old Hyde Amendment, which has to be approved each year as part of the budget for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, prohibits tax dollars from paying for abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or threat to the woman's life.

Vice President Mike Pence will speak with House lawmakers for the second time in 24 hours as Republicans continue to push ahead with efforts to build consensus and finally make good on their promise to repeal Obamacare.

Pence was the one who presented the idea of waivers to the Freedom Caucus during a visit to Capitol Hill on Monday.

I've been watching CNN and MSNBC and listening to Don Lemon, Rachael Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, Chris Cuomo and Jake Tapper, to name a few of the liberal talking heads on cable television, crowing about the Democrats victory over President Trump and the Republicans' health care plan.

Among them: Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a Trump supporter who defended him during one of the darkest periods of his campaign, when lewd "Access Hollywood" video emerged of Trump discussing grabbing women. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a staunch opponent of the bill who lobbied House conservatives to oppose it. "And now we're having the kinds of productive conversations among our members, interacting through the committees of jurisdiction and with the administration".

Republicans were entertaining a White House offer Tuesday to revise the party's failed health care bill, as the GOP tried to resuscitate a measure that crashed spectacularly less than two weeks ago.

"I'm not saying I think it'll happen-I don't know-but I think it's possible".
