Bill stops tax credits for those in United States illegally

President Donald Trump speaks before having lunch with Republican Senators and White House staffers in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington Tuesday

Congressional sources said Trump described the House bill as mean at a closed-door White House lunch Tuesday with 15 Republican senators. The president hosted a big celebration at the White House - a rarity for a bill that had only passed one chamber - and touted the GOP legislation as a triumph. He called it "a great plan" at a celebration he held in the White House Rose Garden to mark its passage through one branch of Congress May 4.

President Trump didn't stop at calling his own health care bill mean. John Thune, R-S.D., who attended the meeting, said.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, was skeptical that a bill could be written in the next three days. Rob Portman of Ohio, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, and conservatives like Sens. "I'm sure there are 217 Republicans - congressmen just squirming that they voted for a mean bill, and they know that's going to be brought up to them in the campaigns in 2018." . Do you intend to have any hearings before the bill comes to the (Senate) floor?'

Republican leaders are working to flesh out differences between senators on the content of a bill. Another congressional source said Trump used a vulgar phrase to describe the bill and urged the senators to make it "more generous".

"I don't think so", Hatch said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch MicConnell and the Republicans are now drafting a new version of the AHCA.

Portman told reporters the group also discussed how to get insurers back in the marketplace quickly. "The status quo is unsustainable".

It would help if details of the GOP plan for Obamacare replacement were more widely circulated so millions of Americans would know what's in their future. "They worked so hard and they worked so long".

"We promised the voters we'd repeal Obamacare", Paul added. Moderates Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski were on the list as well as conservatives Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

There seems to be agreement, however on protecting people with pre-existing conditions. They argue that waiving those requirements would allow states to offer cheap, bare-bones plans and drive down the cost of premiums across the individual insurance markets.

Another week, another insurance company deserting patients in a wide swath of the country.

"Nobody's hiding the ball here", McConnell told reporters Tuesday. "But it's going to be an unbelievable victory, actually, when we get it through the Senate". Party leaders would rather avoid sending lawmakers home for an August recess with hostile town hall meetings that might erode support for an unfinished health care bill, and they want to leave more time for work on tax legislation.

The least bad outcome for McConnell might be to accept an embarrassing defeat when his healthcare bill finally emerges from the darkness.

And with good reason, because when the CBO did look at the bill, it turned out that it would have left 23 million more Americans without health coverage and would slash $834 billion in health care for the poor. What's more, this week, the Senate bill-writers will finish their draft and send it to the Congressional Budget Office for analysis without releasing the legislation to the public.
