It Looks As If The House Will Vote To Replace The ACA With New Bill
Reports indicate that the replacement bill has been weakened in ways that will get the members of the conservative Freedom Caucus to vote for the new bill. The White House is pushing for a vote but Trump is not even familiar with the details of the new bill. He just wants to declare victory. House members in moderate districts may have to defend a bill that cuts benefits for those with preexisting illnesses in the 2018 election. Insurance companies will have the option of raising premiums for applicants with preexisting conditions. That would price many of them out of the market.
