Obamacare support reaches record high as Republicans push for repeal

Obamacare support reaches record high as Republicans push for repeal

In another indication of the growing opposition to the Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, for the first time a majority of Americans say they support the program, and most want to see it improved rather than dismantled. Asked about those on Medicaid who already work - the Kaiser Family Foundation has estimated that almost 60 percent of adult, non-disabled Medicaid enrollees do - Buck said he wants to study the issue more.

Former House Speaker John Boehner and his Republican colleagues were not only vociferous critics of Obamacare from the start, they passed multiple bills to replace it. That's about the same as in January, when 45 percent said it was a good idea and 41 percent said it was a bad one - the all-time high in the bill's popularity.

As the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee Wyoming's senior Senator, Mike Enzi, is working with party leaders to craft a viable replacement option.

Among independents, almost twice as many say Republican leaders should focus on modifying the law rather than scrapping it (29% vs. 15%).

Some 14 million adults across the country within 138 percent of the poverty line - or at the most $16,400 for a single person - have qualified for health insurance under Obamacare's Medicaid expansion.

The Pew Research Center poll asked about 1,500 Americans whether or not they support the healthcare law and if they think it should be repealed.

Republicans are wrestling with how to fulfill President Donald Trump's campaign promise to roll back the law without eliminating its most popular components.

The GOP summary indicated federal funds would continue to temporarily fund 95 percent of the money states like Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia spend on Medicaid expansion recipients. Those would be replaced by tax credits based on a person's age.

GM: Sixers' rookie Ben Simmons out for season
Philadelphia drafted the 20-year-old Simmons first overall after a single season at LSU that saw him average 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.0 steals per game.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC's "This Week" the administration goal is to "make sure that people don't lose their coverage", but at the same time, "we have to make a massive overhaul to the healthcare system in America".

Many provisions of the House plan would affect those who buy insurance on the individual market. Republicans say income-based credits, as exists under Obamacare, discourage work.

The leaked draft bill would also prohibit government subsidies, which help the more than 10 million Americans who get their health insurance through the Affordable Care Act keep their costs down, from being spent on insurance plans that include abortion coverage.

Politico said Boehner made the comments about the ACA, which could disgruntle Republicans who campaigned heavily against the law, at the HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, a gathering of health care professionals, scientists and scholars held in Orlando, Florida, on Thursday. This would allow insurers to offer cheaper plans with less comprehensive coverage.
