    Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who was elected this month to take the reins of the group of sometimes defiant hard-liners, said its members are not afraid to buck Mr. Trump as they did in opposing his attempt to repeal Obamacare in 2017.
  • While 2020 Democrats Fight A Civil War, Republicans Are Fixing Health Insurance

    There’s a civil war brewing on health care. While many of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates support some version of Medicare for All, others aren’t ready to give up on ObamaCare—and Kamala Harris is trying to have her cake and eat it too. “KamalaCare” would apparently move the country to Medicare for All over the span of 10 years. But it would require the help of private insurers—a surprise, considering Harris supported the elimination of private health insurance during the last Democratic presidential debate. The plan was met with immediate criticism from so-called “moderate” and radical Democrats alike—either saying...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said this week that Republicans would push to repeal ObamaCare if they win back the House and President Trump is reelected in 2020. "If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal ObamaCare, we're going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner," Graham said in an interview with a South Carolina radio station. "We've got to remind people that we're not for ObamaCare." Graham's repeal bill, introduced...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a plan on Monday to bolster ObamaCare by protecting people with pre-existing conditions, ​adding a “public option” like Medicare and using tax credits to lower premiums. With the announcement, the former vice president set himself apart from other Democratic candidates who supported “Medicare for all,” including Sens. Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris. ​”I understand the appeal of Medicare for All,” Biden said in a video posted ​Monday. “But folks supporting it should be clear that it means getting rid of Obamacare. And I’m not for that.”

    "The next major priority for me, and for all of us, should be to lower the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs, and to protect patients with preexisting conditions." President Donald J. Trump OFFERING WORKERS BETTER COVERAGE: President Donald J. Trump is expanding Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), opening new coverage options for American workers. The Trump Administration has finalized a rule to expand HRAs, giving businesses a better way to offer health insurance coverage. Under the rule, employers will be able to provide their workers with tax-preferred funds to pay for the cost of health insurance coverage that workers purchase...
  • Trump says he will roll out 'phenomenal' new healthcare plan within the next two months

    President Donald Trump said he would be rolling out a 'phenomenal' new healthcare plan within the next two months, and says healthcare will be a primary focus leading up to his 2020 election campaign. Trump has repeatedly called for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as "Obamacare," and has promised to pass a bill that would offer " insurance for everybody." In 2017, Republican lawmakers made serious efforts to replace Obamacare with an updated version called the American Health Care Act, or ACHA, however the bill was ultimately tabled. Speaking to ABC News in an interview which...

    President Trump announced that Republicans would not present a health care overhaul proposal until after the 2020 election, punting on coming up with a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, which the administration is currently fighting in court to invalidate. The issue now will dominate presidential campaigns in the months leading up to the 2020 election. Mr. Trump announced his new timetable in a thread of Twitter posts late Monday, putting off one of his biggest campaign promises until, the president hopes, he is re-elected. “Everybody agrees that ObamaCare doesn’t work,” began Mr. Trump, who went on to add that...

    President Donald Trump’s health care agenda keeps running aground, again and again, in the courts. Unable to pass a health care bill in Congress, the Trump administration decided to use regulations to roll back the Affordable Care Act and reshape Medicaid. But those plans have been blocked repeatedly by the judiciary. This week alone, federal judges ruled against Medicaid work requirements and association health plans, two signature Trump proposals. Some of the losses have come on technical grounds, with judges chastising the administration for pushing through new regulations without properly accounting for their consequences or public comments on the proposals....

    Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress. Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins,...

    Despite numerous promises from congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama when they passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the health care law has created far more problems than it has solved. Premiums, deductibles, and health care choices have all worsened since Obamacare went into effect, and there’s no sign America’s health insurance system will improve anytime in the near future. President Trump inherited a health insurance crisis when he took office in January 2017, so he and congressional Republican leaders immediately began to work to implement their plan to replace Obamacare with a more market-centered approach to improving the...

    President Trump again mocked Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Saturday for McCain’s thumbs-down vote on the Republican plan to repeal ObamaCare. Though Trump did not mention McCain by name, he has attacked the senator several times in recent weeks for his “no” on the GOP measure and has blamed McCain for the collapse of the Republican effort to repeal the act. Trump at a GOP rally in Nevada said McCain went thumbs-down on the bill, a reference to McCain using the gesture to signify his vote. "Nobody talked to him. Nobody needed to, and then he walked in: thumbs-down. It’s...

    Democrats are seizing on the Trump administration’s push in court to overturn ObamaCare’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions, hoping to leverage the issue ahead of November’s midterm elections as some Republicans rush to distance themselves from the move. The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to join a legal battle arguing that one of the most popular parts of ObamaCare should be struck down is being viewed by Democrats as a political gift, with the party apparatus quickly using the issue to attack GOP candidates and rally their base. Ever since the DOJ joined 20 GOP-led states last week in...

    Most of the discussion of the Trump administration's decision not to defend the Affordable Care Act — and to urge the courts to throw out its protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions — has focused on what happens to the individual insurance market. But the political impact may be even greater. Why it matters: Protections for people with pre-existing conditions are hugely popular, and the administration may have handed Democrats their strongest health care weapon yet — because now they can make the case that the administration has gone to court to take away protections for people with pre-existing...

    There really should be a job posting coming up soon for a new DNC strategist because somebody has gone off their meds. The phrase “repeal and replace” is coming back into vogue, but this time we’ll be hearing it from the Democrats. At first glance I had to double check to make sure this wasn’t an article from The Onion. But it’s really published at The Hill and deals with the Democrats’ overarching strategy heading into the midterms and perhaps even the 2020 elections. They’re counting on Americans being so unhappy with their “crumbs” from the tax cuts that they...

    Although the Trump administration and Congress have struggled to fully repeal Obamacare, while putting a good dent in the law by repealing the individual mandate through tax reform, officials are finding new ways to lower costs and expand coverage to consumers. On Thursday, the Department of Labor announced a new rule proposal that opens the door to allowing insurance companies to sell plans and coverage across state lines. From Insurance News Net:  In another move toward dismantling the Affordable Care Act, the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule to expand the offering of small business health plans, also known as...

    Republican lawmakers are fiercely debating what major legislation to take up as we move into 2018. Many GOP lawmakers favor another attempt at repealing Obamacare, however, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is strongly against it. Come January, the Republican majority in the Senate will fall to one seat, and McConnell believes the Senate should work on passing legislation that is less partisan. "Well, we obviously were unable to completely repeal and replace with a 52-48 Senate," McConnell told NPR. "We'll have to take a look at what that looks like with a 51-49 Senate. But I think we'll probably...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday the Senate is unlikely to pursue a repeal and replacement of Obamacare next year, bowing to the reality of a narrower Republican majority in 2018. McConnell said on NPR on Thursday that the Senate was unable to repeal and replace Obamacare with a 52-48 majority earlier this year, and indicated it will be even tougher with one less Republican. Democrat Doug Jones won an upset victory against Republican Roy Moore in Alabama this month, narrowing the GOP margin even more in the upper chamber. "We'll have to take a look at what that...
