Republican Sen. Tom Cotton dismisses 3-phase health-care plan It's just 'spin'

Though expansion wasn't associated with significant changes in health status, expansion states saw an increase in the ability of low-income residents to afford follow-up care - 3.4 percentage points compared with non-expansion states - and fewer reports of concerns about paying medical bills - a decrease of 7.9 percentage points compared with non-expansion states. If the Trump administration chooses to settle the claims, some policy analysts think it could buy some good will with insurers to keep them in the market next year. "What does it take to get you to "yes"?"

If Trump and Ryan lose the Freedom Caucus, they risk a stalemate in Congress over health care and potential backlash from the party's base if they're unable to do what Republicans have promised their voters for years: Get rid of Obamacare, repeal the mandate that most people must have health insurance or pay a fine, and loosen restrictions on insurance companies.

On Tuesday morning, the president will visit Capitol Hill in an attempt to seal House Republican support for the plan.

If passed in the House, the legislation then moves to the Senate, where a tighter 52-48 Republican majority makes the outlook less certain.

Tipton, who has said he favors repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, was expecting changes to be made to the bill before it reaches the floor, according to his Washington, D.C., office. Those changes were included in the leadership-backed amendments that will be incorporated into the bill before it comes to a final vote.

"We remain the highest-cost state for health care and therefore, at times, we require a different approach than the Lower 48", he said. The moderates could put forward a more robust government plan, an Obamacare-lite plan.

New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance told CNN that "I'm a lean 'no.'" When pressed if any of the new changes could get him to back the bill he replied, "I doubt it".

Biden had largely been quiet since leaving the White House in January.

But several Republicans continue to criticize the bill. Rep. But the ACA limits so-called age band rating so they can only charge older enrollees three times more.

Spicer: Just the 'beginning phase' of investigating whether Trump Tower was surveilled
The White House said the president was conducting meetings, taking phone calls and that he "might hit a few balls". Trump's Twitter habits are making their jobs harder, said administration officials interviewed over the past week.

In an effort directly targeting centrist Republicans from upstate NY, leaders added a provision created to transfer more Medicaid dollars from the county level to the state level.

"I don't see a way to purely through the regulatory process really do a lot to bring down premiums", Garthwaite said.

It's not just moderates who are still wavering.

The Congressional Budget Office analysis of the original House Republican bill a week ago severely damaged its prospects. Congressional analysts say the current GOP legislation would hit many with big cost increases.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was also there. A White House meeting with senators Monday also left conservatives unhappy.

Trump's appearance here - in a packed arena known as Freedom Hall that has a stated capacity of more than 18,000 - came on a day in Washington dominated by testimony from FBI Director James B. Comey that undercut Trump's contention that his predecessor had wiretapped Trump Tower during the election.

"We should pay them", in order to insure the future of the individual market, said the Kellogg School's Garthwaite. As I am 60 years old and my husband is 60, we now pay $19,584 per year for health coverage through Kaiser.

But, Labrador said, "We don't believe that they have 216 votes".
