More than half of Americans approve of Obamacare now, Gallup poll finds

More than half of Americans approve of Obamacare now, Gallup poll finds”

Conservatives dialed up criticism of moderates for standing in the way.

"The ideas that were tossed around were not rejected out of hand", said Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-Va., a Freedom Caucus member.

Republicans are trying to pick up the pieces of their plan to repeal Obamacare, almost two weeks after their last effort failed.

"I'm not going to raise expectations", Spicer said.

Requirements to insure people with preexisting conditions would remain, but getting rid of these provisions would allow insurers to include less services on their plans and ultimately charge the sick more, making it far less useful overall. The other is the essential health benefits provision that spells out categories of benefits all insurance plans must cover.

- Democratic legislators and left-leaning health care advocacy groups again called Tuesday for the General Assembly to move forward with Medicaid expansion. Voters who lose their insurance or see their costs balloon in the aftermath of an insurance market implosion will already know which party was responsible for passing Obamacare. Then, after it failed, he said this: "I think what will happen is Obamacare, unfortunately, will explode". "There is no doubt that Obamacare as a system is not working very well, but nobody wants to go backward".

Republicans who do vote for a bill that changes the rules on pre-existing conditions - especially those whose seats are considered vulnerable in the 2018 midterm elections - could be facing ready-made attack ads from Democrats. Below is a statement from Families USA Executive Director Frederick Isasi. Her nonpartisan organization offers policy advice to states. "A few months ago, right before this all started, the Affordable Care Act was at, like, 42 percent favorable to 52 [percent] negative because of the misrepresentations that the Republicans put out there".

The White House is leading the effort, and Vice President Mike Pence presented lawmakers options in a flurry of closed-door meetings stretching into late Tuesday.

But in April, 2017, 55 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove.

Ryan's office, however, seemed to be keeping arms-length from the negotiations. Forty percent would keep the law, but make significant changes in it. Two-thirds of young people agree with a smaller majority of Americans overall that the government should make sure people have health care coverage.

He refused to give a time line for having a bill on the House floor, and Congress was set to begin a two-week recess at the end of this week. But people split evenly between wanting to keep or repeal the statute.
