J. Denny Weaver: Ryan's health care bill reveals his values

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price acknowledged that passing the White House backed health care bill through both houses of Congress is going to be tricky, but said he is confident that the GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare will move forward. "We believe we should have even more assistance. for that person in their 50s and 60s because they experience higher health care costs", Ryan told Fox News Sunday.

Among the other changes Ryan says are under consideration are allowing states to impose a work requirement for Medicaid recipients and allowing states to accept a block grant for Medicaid.

"We have to do something about the fact that the House bill disproportionately affects older, rural Americans", Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. As the bill now stands, older, poorer Americans will have far less help from Republican tax credits starting in 2020 than they get through Obamacare subsidies.

Dear Editor: Since resistance has grown and it will certainly be amended, it is not necessary to debate too many details of the Trump-Ryan health care plan that Paul Ryan presented recently. The bill adds complicated tax issues, health savings accounts, seemingly arbitrary tax credits and other obstacles including the re-institution of rescission, that make having to deal with already debilitating health issues exponentially more complex and hard.

"I'm very impressed with how the president is helping us close this bill, making the improvements that we've been making, getting the votes, so we feel very good where we are", he added. "He's the one who has helped to negotiate changes to this bill with members from all over our caucus".

"It's fixable, but it's going to take a lot of work", Cotton said on CNN's "State of the Union". "But is the major decrease in the number of people - according to the CBO - who will have health insurance, is it freedom or is it that some people will no longer be able to afford health insurance under your plan?"

Still, several conservative Republicans in the Senate worry for low-income Americans losing their insurance once the new USA health care bill is legislated.
