Price defends cutting almost $1 trillion from Medicaid

This last element is especially cruel and will deprive millions of Americans, especially low- and middle-income, seniors, children, parents, and people with disabilities from receiving the health care they need and deserve.

Ryan spoke with ABC's George Stephanopoulos about the health care legislation passed this week by the House and now before the Senate overhauling major aspects of Obamacare.

Ryan addressed one of the just-passed bill's most controversial provisions, allowing states to opt out of requiring insurers to sell plans to those who already are sick, declaring that "no matter what, you can not be denied coverage if you have a preexisting [health] condition". That ad is focused on helping Republicans in competitive districts. Richard Burr, who a year ago said "Obamacare is imploding", will give a nod to whatever repeal Senate Republicans settle on.

President Donald Trump is urging Senate Republicans to "not let the American people down".

Greenpeace unfurls anti-Le Pen 'resist' banner on Eiffel Tower
It is "a warning against Marine Le Pen's program and the dangers it poses for NGOs and others", Julliard told reporters. In recent years, Le Pen has tried to soften the profile of the National Front party founded by her father.

"They are going to be living in the emergency rooms again", potentially driving up health care costs, he said. Budget analysts estimate 24 million Americans would lose insurance over a decade, 14 million in the first year, and older Americans would face higher costs.

"We have an opportunity to take down the person who was the author of Trumpcare 2.0", said Democrat Andrew Kim, an Obama White House national security adviser, who said he's now more likely to challenge MacArthur next year. "It will be a very different process that will look very different from the one that we just saw unfolding in the House".

The bill would also allow insurance companies to offer policies with annual and lifetime benefit limits, options that are banned under the Affordable Care Act.

On the other side, a GOP group allied with House leadership announced plans to run TV ads thanking Republicans who voted for the repeal bill in key districts.

United Airlines chief will no longer be chairman
David Dao refused to give up his seat and was dragged off the flight, which the airline said was overbooked. Four senators, including committee Chairman John Thune, R-S.D., and Sen.

It marked a reversal of fortune for Mr Trump, who suffered a stunning defeat in late March when House Republican leaders pulled legislation to scrap Obamacare after they and the White House could not resolve the clashing interests of Republican moderates and the party's most conservative lawmakers.

But Collins said she thinks the upper chamber will "come up with a whole new fresh approach that solves the legitimate flaws that do exist with the [Affordable Care Act]. but it will keep some benefits of the ACA".

House Speaker Paul Ryan insists a bill the House passed to repeal and replace Barack Obama's health care law provides sufficient coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions.

"I've already made clear that I don't support the House Bill as now constructed because I continue to have concerns that this Bill does not do enough to protect Ohio's Medicaid expansion population", said Republican Senator Rob Portman. With waivers, insurers could charge people with pre-existing illnesses far higher rates than healthy customers, boost prices for older people to whatever they wish, and ignore a mandate that they cover specified services like pregnancy care.

"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.

Price says during appearances on two Sunday talk shows that Medicaid is fundamentally flawed.
