President Trump Gets First Victory With House Republicans Voting to Repeal Obamacare

Simpson, a former House speaker in the Idaho Legislature, has plenty of experience in parliamentary procedure.

Reince Priebus (ryns PREE'-bus) tells "Fox News Sunday" that he thinks "the Republican Party will be rewarded" when the health care legislation to replace President Barack Obama's overhaul becomes law. "He couldn't get health-care repeal-and-replace through the House, he got it through the House". It would be disastrous for Idaho.

As a result of the bill which passed the House, more than 20 million Americans will lose their health insurance; millions more will pay an average of nearly $4,000 more each year for less coverage.

It also affects company-provided insurance programs, freeing up employers to curb coverage for their workers.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price says cutting almost $1 trillion from Medicaid would give states freedom to tailor the program to fit their needs.

"Well, the leaders obviously chose the people they want", she said.

Pregnancy, sexual assault and domestic violence could be considered "pre-existing conditions" that make it hard to keep insurance coverage under the Republican health care bill, according to a number of news articles and social media posts. "I can also assure you my staff did", he said.

Health Care repeal passes US House
Former President Barack Obama speaks after being presented with the 2017 Profile in Courage award during ceremonies at the John F. According to Collins, the bill, which is part of the GOP effort to repeal Obamacare , would undergo major surgery.

Many people with pre-existing conditions will find insurance either completely unavailable or totally out of their financial reach. "You saw that today and you'll see it again".

Still don't believe this is a bad deal?

Almost every major medical group, including the American Medical Association and the American Hospital Association, and the AARP advocacy group for older Americans, strongly opposed the Bill. If the AHCA was exclusively a bill about Medicaid reform, we'd be jumping for joy.

Put simply, this bill will cause immeasurable human suffering. But its backers say it will lower the cost of health care for people. The agency said an earlier version of the Republican proposal would leave 24 million people without insurance in 10 years. This is the best they could do?

The American Action Network is going up with a $500,000 buy that touts the health plan, known as the American Health Care Act, and thanks Ryan and Republicans who supported the measure in its narrow passage out of the House last week.

That's not principled. That's irresponsible.
