Boehner on ObamaCare Repeal: 'It's Not Going to Happen'


Fifty-four percent of the 1,503 adults surveyed February 7 to 12 said they approve of former President Obama's signature health insurance plan, while 43 percent say they disapprove. You can tinker with the law and change things around the edges, but as soon as you start messing with the central features, such as the requirement for insurers to cover people with "pre-existing conditions", or the mandate requiring everyone to be covered, everything will fall apart, leaving a mess behind as millions once again are left with no health care coverage. "But for that to happen, Donald Trump has to take a very strong lead and twist enough arms and give enough spines and steel they need to get us to 218 votes we need in the House of Representatives and the 51 votes we need in the Senate to pass the Obamacare repeal".

At the center of the talks are four governors who have taken different approaches to Medicaid: Walker and Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee, whose states did not expand Medicaid under the law; and two governors from states that did: Kasich and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

US health insurance executives, many of whom have lost hundreds of millions of dollars on the Obamacare individual insurance markets, are due to meet with Trump on Monday, according to a Bloomberg report. But, he says "sticking points remain on Medicaid reform" and the expansion lives in the states that increased eligibility under the ACA.

Under the plan, states that expanded eligibility for Medicaid would see their supplemental federal funding rolled back. While only 10 percent of Republicans support the health care law, 42 percent think GOP congressional leaders should modify the law and 44 percent want to repeal it.

Numerous law's supporters consider the coverage requirement essential for nudging younger, healthy people into the insurance pool to keep premiums in check.

-Be paid for by limiting tax breaks on health plans people get at work (ala the Obamacare "Cadillac tax" that Republicans have fought to repeal).

Former Speaker John Boehner said Republicans were "wildly optimistic" on the campaign trail in promising voters a full and immediate repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as Obamacare. Republicans in Congress are also ideologically opposed to regulating prices and argue that permitting insurers to sell policies across state lines would encourage competition and pull down costs.

Ryan's plan also calls for enhancing and expanding Health Savings Accounts and providing Americans access to "a portable, monthly tax credit that they can use to buy a health insurance plan".

House Republicans are circulating a draft ObamaCare replacement plan that would get rid of its core component - subsidies for those with limited incomes who can't afford the premiums, according to a report. A press release from her office in January cited data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which said 18,000 North Dakotans stand to lose coverage they've gained through Medicaid expansion.

"Obamacare has failed. We welcome any and all efforts to repeal and replace it that put patients first."
