Democrats see a winning issue in opposing GOP health bill

A health advocacy group in Kentucky is reacting to the health care plan approved by the Republican-controlled U.S. House. "I think we will do so and that we will come up with a whole new fresh approach that solves the legitimate flaws that do exist with the ACA, where we have seen, in some markets, insurers fleeing so people won't be able to buy subsidized insurance. But basically we're writing our own bill", Sen.

"We believe this is going to be a better product", Mr. Priebus said. "The Senate is looking forward to getting it. Mitch McConnell knows how to do things".

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner of IL, a state that expanded coverage under Obama's law, said he will push senators to change the legislation so the impacts are not as dire for the state.

The outspoken and immediate skepticism pointed to a long road ahead in the Senate. Senior citizens, for whom the AHCA already plans to increase premiums, are more likely to belong to this category of patients.

Twenty Republicans voted against the AHCA, which received no support from Democrats.

The bill now goes to the Senate where massive changes are expected. Rand Paul of Kentucky, argue there's no choice. "They'll find out that their Congress person voted to take away their healthcare".

There was immediate evidence of the political pressure that awaits.

Analysts say that Moscow could be pushing the Assad regime to de-escalate the conflict and agree to the plan. Russia's plan for "de-escalation" zones was backed by Iran at the Kazakhstan talks.

Indeed Democrats seemed practically giddy as the vote closed on the House floor, jeering at Republicans with chants of "nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, goodbye" " an echo of how protesters serenaded Democrats seven years ago when they passed Obama's bill.

"Republican Senators will not let the American People down!", he wrote on Twitter. Mick Mulvaney, Trump's budget director, said the House bill is unlikely to be the version that ultimately clears the Senate and ends up in front of the president. Some describe suffering from cancer, hereditary diseases or post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by combat.

Wrangling on the bill now shifts to the Senate, where Republicans, who hold a slim majority there, say they are readying their own health care measure.

"Regrettably, the AHCA, as amended and passed by the House, violates our principles, dramatically increasing costs for older individuals, resulting in millions of people losing their health care coverage, and returning to a system that allows insurers to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions", said organization representatives in a joint statement. The latter provision was the focus of much attention from opponents Friday.

On Wednesday, he told reporters they would support the legislation with an $8 billion amendment added over five years to assist those with pre-existing conditions in states that seek waivers under the Republican health care plan as now proposed. If Republicans didn't deliver after years of promises to their conservative base, he said, they'd "get crushed" in 2018.

The bill would also allow insurance companies to offer policies with annual and lifetime benefit limits, options that are banned under the Affordable Care Act.
