Trump calls House health bill he backed 'mean'

19 Junio 2017, 10:22 | Crisanna Felipe

Asked to comment on Trump's remarks about the House measure, Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said, "Congressional Republicans, with President Trump's support, are working to repeal and replace this awful Obamacare law that is harming Americans".

The president's criticism also came as Senate Republican leaders' attempts to write their own health care package have been slowed by disagreements between their party's conservatives and moderates.

While the bill is likely to look similar to the House AHCA on many major aspects, several key issues will decide whether Senate Republican leaders can get the bill passed. During a ceremony at the Rose Garden, Trump praised the bill as "an incredible healthcare plan" and "something very, very incredibly well-crafted", according to the White House.

He reportedly said the Senate version of the bill should be "more generous".

"Generous, kind, with heart". John Thune, R-S.D., who attended the meeting, said. Joni Ernst, Tennessee Sen. Tom Cotton, Alaska Sen.

"They have not given us anything", one Senate Republican aide told CNN.

Orrin Hatch would just as soon not let anyone have anything.

"I think we've got a little ways to go", he told reporters. "We all know something has to be done".

"This is a great plan, and this is a repeal and a replace of Obamacare, make no mistake about it", Mr. Trump said at the time. "They worked so hard and they worked so long".

"They have held no hearings, engaged in no public debate, and provided no information for people across the county to understand what this all-male, Republican working group has in store for their health and financial security", Murray said. A growing number of conservatives, including Sens. That House bill was widely criticized for letting states seek waivers from insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions. The major taxes include a tax on insurance companies, a medical device tax, a tax on investment income and an income tax on couples making more than $250,000 per year.

A group of moderates, led by Sens.

On Tuesday, reporters were temporarily barred from interviewing senators in Senate hallways without prior permission from the Senate Rules Committee.

"Well, I think we're not anxious so much about that as we are getting it together so we can get a majority to vote for it", said Hatch, a grandee who has served in the Senate for 40 years. So the president now wants the Senate to pass a less "mean" bill so that the Republican plan will "be received well" and maybe his approval rating will reach 40%. It is expected that the bill will be ready for a vote before the upcoming August recess, The New York Times reports.

It is good news that senators may make their bill more centrist rather than, as the House did, more austere in order to pass it.

The AHCA was projected by the Congressional Budget Office to cause 23 million fewer people to have insurance over the next decade compared to Obamacare, and found that premiums would skyrocket for people with pre-existing conditions and women seeking maternity care in states that waive Obamacare regulations on insurers.
