Ryan Says Obamacare Replacement Bill Will Be Done in 2017

Obama "encouraged us to fight", Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings told reporters.

One item Republican lawmakers promise to repeal, and in short order, is President Obama's signature health care law - the Affordable Care Act.

Obama made the comments during a live, wonky interview with Ezra Klein and Sarah Kliff of Vox. Obama wrote. The Democrats are largely resigned to the likelihood that the Republicans will succeed in repealing the law, however, they are seeking to exploit divisions among the party since, for years has been unable to unite behind an alternative plan.

Health-care experts have said that up to 30 million people could lose coverage if the ACA is repealed without a replacement.

Republicans are moving to repeal ObamaCare quickly, but it is not clear what they will put in its place, or whether they can get a replacement plan through Congress. Transition periods of at least two years have been discussed that would allow those on ObamaCare to keep their coverage.

In a series of tweets, Trump called Obamacare a "disaster" and said Democrats "are to blame for the mess". After the meeting, Schumer, the Senate minority leader, said repealing the ACA would "make America sick again".

Look.Obamacare has significant problems, and if a majority in Congress now want to repeal it, that's their prerogative.

Johnson said: "I would start bringing up those elements that start repairing the damage and I would start taking votes on those right now". "And that's not too much to ask".

"How do you champion this meager expansion being passed six weeks ago, and turn around to cut the largest payer of mental health care in the country and say they are consistent, and that you actually care about people who are suffering from mental illness?"

"If they can come up with something better I'm for it".

Louise Slaughter said Obama focused on how well the law is working, and on how many letters he's gotten in support of it. That plan would slowly strip away Obamacare funding while a viable replacement is crafted.

President Obama didn't speak publicly at the Capitol today. "There has been no outreach that I am aware of to say: 'Let's work on the Affordable Care Act and make it stronger'".

Despite the premium increases, the number of people signing up for health plans through the public exchanges set up by Obamacare is the highest in the exchanges' four-year history.

"We don't want to pull the rug out from under people while we're replacing this law", said House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The Republican-controlled Senate brushed aside unified opposition by Democrats and voted to open debate on a resolution setting in motion the Republican drive to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act, which has helped upwards of 20 million previously uninsured Americans obtain medical insurance.
