Democrats see a winning issue in opposing GOP health bill

"But we do have a lot of poor and middle-class people that depend on the coverage of the Affordable Care Act that will be hurt by this".

"It is my fervent hope and the hope of millions. such courage is still possible, that today's members of Congress regardless of party are willing to look at the facts and speak the truth, even when it contradicts party positions", he said.

The American Health Care Act, which was narrowly passed in the House last week, would worsen Obamacare's problems rather than fix them.

"It's going to be an unbelievable victory. when we get it through the Senate", Mr Trump said after the vote.

This confirms what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters on Friday in a press conference, one where he also estimated he wouldn't be able to get bipartisan support for any repeal effort.

Almost every major medical group, including the American Medical Association and the American Hospital Association, and the AARP advocacy group for older Americans, strongly opposed the Bill.

The new United States healthcare bill is "a great plan", according to President Donald Trump.

Among the various concerns regarding the new bill is the effect it will have on Medicaid, a program responsible for ensuring health care for the elderly and disabled.

"Republican senators will not let the American people down!" he tweeted from his private golf course in central New Jersey, where he has stayed since Thursday.

As of now, because the GOP pushed to vote before a new CBO score was released, it is unclear how much the new health care legislation would cost or how many people might lose their coverage. "But it could result in additional veterans seeking care in the VA system", David Shulkin said during an interview on The Rita Cosby Show on WABC just hours after the vote. The Obama-era law expanded Medicaid with extra payments to 31 states to cover more people. "There'd be a House bill". Save My Care says the campaign will include a mix of TV and digital advertising, costing more than a half million dollars.

The American Healthcare Act (AHCA) is out of the House with 217 GOP lawmakers supporting the new healthcare legislation. And so we want to see health care reform done, but we want to do it right.

"(Portman) said that he's, you know, against trying to make cuts to Medicaid and making sure that, you know, people have access, and it's time for him to step up and really do it", Mendiola said.

However, he also seemed to make a point of giving the Senate time to make changes, despite Trump's strong desire to fulfill his campaign promise of repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
