Are pregnancy, rape pre-existing conditions?

Another vocal opponent of the bill includes Republican Gov. John Kasich, who said the legislation "remains woefully short on the necessary resources to maintain health care for our nation's most vulnerable citizens". "Who is it that's going out there and saying that pre-existing conditions won't be covered?"

As attention shifts to a Senate vote, top business advocates mostly approved of the bill, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Only 17% of the public was behind the House's plan, and the GOP may feel the repercussions in the 2018 midterm elections. And, much like the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, it is riddled with complexities.

"Given the massive spikes in premiums and deductibles so many Pennsylvania families are enduring, the loss of choices and the collapse of individual markets, we have begun the process of repealing and replacing Obamacare", Toomey also said in the statement.

The House version of AHCA would allow waivers that permit insurers to charge those with pre-existing illnesses far higher rates than other customers and ignore mandatory coverage of specific services including pregnancy care. The bill has provoked widespread condemnation as hospital associations, consumers and insurers have said the new proposals would make health care less affordable.

At NRA Conference, Trump Bathes Audience In Conservative Shout-Outs
In November 2016, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre told members that their organization would collect on Trump's campaign promises. Trump's close relationship with the NRA is alarming to advocates of gun control, who see it as leading to a unsafe era.

As the Republican leadership conceded more and more demands by extreme conservative lawmakers, the bill in its current version makes health insurance costlier for older and sicker people, while restricting the scope and reach of the state-run Medicaid programme for the poor.

Well, guess what. I am a college professor, have read a few complicated texts in my life, and I can't completely figure out exactly what this bill would do.

That the bill came without a score from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office seemed to matter not a whit to Republicans who spent seven years excoriating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her now-infamous remark that the House had to pass Obamacare to "find out what's in it."

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the House bill poses "more questions than answers about its consequences".

"Everybody" has better health care than the US
Australia's healthcare system is mostly funded by the government while relying on private health insurance for some services. Not only that, but the refugee deal with Australia that the president described on Twitter as a "dumb deal" was also OK.

Other Republicans in the Senate have been outspoken in their doubts about the plan.

Then there are senators like Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, former presidential candidates who seldom back away from fights and have already signaled they're looking for changes.

Collins could be a hard vote to win for Republican leaders, who can only lose two votes to pass the bill.

When the Senate and House are unable to pass the same exact bill, they form a separate committee to try to work out the differences.

"Repeal and replace Obamacare" has been the mantra of the GOP for so long now - since 2010 - it's a bit surprising the party hasn't invested more time and energy in figuring out how to explain the issues to the American people in ways they can grasp quickly.
