GOP Leaders to Conservative Rebels: Trump Has Our Back on Obamacare

WASHINGTON ― After years of complaining about the secretive way Democrats drafted the Affordable Care Act, Republicans locked a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare in an undisclosed room for only select members to review, setting off a theatrical search on Thursday that had Democrats wandering Capitol halls and knocking on random doors.

When pressed on whether he has talked to House leadership about getting a copy of the bill, Paul declined to comment on specific conversations.

"It's the secret office for the secret bill", Sen.

Sen Paul trying to enter room with ACA bill. "This is what you get, '" Paul said.

Republican leaders, however, say that the process has been extremely open, pointing to multiple meetings with Republicans allowing them to suggest ideas.

During the presidential campaign and since the election, Trump has made a series of sweeping-and in many cases, contradictory-promises about the future of the health-care industry that have left the Republican Party struggling to sort out a series of intractable challenges. It is expected to be available to members and staffers on the House Energy and Commerce panel starting Thursday, but only in a dedicated reading room, one Republican lawmaker and a committee aide said.

"WE'RE GOING to have insurance for everybody", President Trump told The Post in January.

Ways and Means Committee member Tom Reed of NY said the panel is "very committed" to holding the meetings next week. "She wouldn't tell us anything really", Paul told reporters after his thwarted attempt.

"We are sending federal assistance in a newly created method that somehow we think will work better than what we've had [in Obamacare]", said Meadows, who noted that he met with Senator Rand Paul to discuss the GOP leadership's proposals.

"This is being presented as if it were a national secret, as it if it were a plot to invade another country".

Online jail records showed Rizzuto was arrested on a number of charges and was being held at the city's jail. The victims range in age from as young as 3 or 4-years-old to adults in their 30s and 40s, said Elder.

"I think buying insurance for people that already have enormous bills doesn't make any sense", Paul said in an brief interview on Capitol Hill. Parts of their expeditions were streamed on social media.

Rep. Frank Pallone, D-New Jersey, was among the Democrats searching for the bill.

If the actual bill going to markup is like the draft that went public, then we can expect some popular provisions of the ACA - including requiring all insurers to cover 10 essential benefits, prohibitions on lifetime limits for care, and dependent coverage extending until age 26 - to stay in place. "Republicans would likely need 50 of the 52 GOP senators to vote for a repeal-and-replace bill, so the trio could sink any proposal they dislike", Politico noted Monday.

And outside Congress, three prominent groups - FreedomWorks, Americans for Prosperity and Heritage Action for America - plan to increase pressure on lawmakers to repeal the law fully or risk retribution from the conservative grass roots.

However, according to the newly leaked revised draft, there would be a higher-end cutoff of the tax credits.

Paul Ryan: Repealing and replacing Obamacare is entitlement reform
Ryan noted that the overhaul process started more than a year ago with a Republican task force producing a "consensus plan that we all ran on together".
