Polls show even higher support for Obamacare after GOP whiffs on reform

Polls show even higher support for Obamacare after GOP whiffs on reform

That proposal was included in the failed GOP overhaul.

Some of the problems with the bill included persistent rising health care costs and maintaining certain health care provisions for illegal aliens, potentially leaving both Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration vulnerable to an electoral backlash.

If congressional representatives and their families had to go onto the very same health plan they are proposing to force all Americans to accept, maybe they would produce a plan that truly works for all Americans. With health insurance, if someone doesn't want to pay for insurance, what do they do when they are sick? He has since said that when Obamacare "explodes", a new healthcare plan will be put in place.

Another nonpartisan survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation revealed three out of four Americans want the Trump administration to make the law work.

"He just wants to protect us from al-Qaida, and terrorism", said Kervin Dorsainvil, 18, a computer technician from Port Charlotte, Florida. "We need to figure out how we are going to be able to have access to affordable health insurance for the people of this country". "So why wouldn't we do that?" Conservative Republicans have demanded even deeper cuts in Affordable Care Act coverage, many involving health benefits for women. But independent analysis of similar legislation found 95 percent of USA households would pay less than the current system of insurance premiums, deductibles and co-pays.

Despite their overall approval of "Obamacare", young Americans' views on the law aren't all rosy.

Majority public support for Obamacare could create "a major obstacle to Trump and Congress' ongoing efforts to change and replace the law", Gallup added.

The same firebrand conservatives who helped derail the GOP's long-awaited legislation to repeal and replace key parts of the Affordable Care Act are now trying to breathe new life into the bill with a long shot effort to bring it back for a vote in May.

The top executive of Long Beach, Calif. -based Molina Healthcare said Republicans' "piecemeal approach" to repeal and replace the ACA will lead to a "healthcare disaster", according to a Tuesday interview on CNBC's Closing Bell.

Those crafting Trumpcare 2.0 are considering eliminating important provisions that require insurance companies to cover essential health benefits, like emergency services and mental health treatment, and prevent them from jacking up premiums for people with pre-existing conditions.
