By the numbers: Why millions go uninsured under GOP plan

The next step for House Republicans will be to revise the bill to prepare it for House and Senate votes. "It's failing", Trump told reporters at a joint news conference with the visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence meet with members of the Republican Study Committee.

Republicans remain deeply divided over their USA healthcare overhaul, Trump's first major legislative initiative and one that aims to make good on his campaign pledge to repeal and replace the healthcare plan put in place by his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama.

Trump was expected to urge lawmakers to back the bill in remarks later Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn.

CBO said the number of people without health coverage would soar in subsequent years, "to 21 million in 2020 and then to 24 million in 2026" compared to those now insured under the reforms implemented by Trump's Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.

Obamacare expanded insurance to about 20 million Americans but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said on Monday that 14 million Americans would lose medical insurance by next year under the Republican plan.

But the Republican Study Committee is far from the only constituency within the House GOP that President Trump has to deal with.

Republicans control both Congress and the White House for the first time in a decade, but the overhaul still faces political battles to be fought by a president new to governing. The aforementioned ME senator is already a "no" vote on the bill, and other moderate Republican senators have demanded that the bill adopt more generous subsidies for low-income people.

"Oh heck, yes", said one conservative leader, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, when asked if the GOP legislation needed changes to win his support. The CBO predicted that 24 million people would purchase coverage on the exchanges in 2017, almost double the most recent enrollment figures. Still, some GOP senators said they were concerned with the House legislation's potential effects on low-income people, seniors and Medicaid patients. We now know the proposed legislation would throw off seniors, and provide meaningless tax credits of $2,000 for younger participants and $4,000 tax credits for older citizens.

In a new complication, Sen.

Right now, Republicans are fighting each other, while Democrats sit on the sidelines.

For example, if a person's coverage lapses from non-payment, Baldwin says an insurance company will have the ability to deny them coverage.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said the only change leaders might be willing to make was imposing an optional work requirement on some recipients of Medicaid, which helps finance health coverage for the poor. This was called the "individual mandate".

Meanwhile, moderates in the same party feel the tax credits are too stingy, especially for low earners and older people. It would cut Medicaid, repeal the law's tax increases on higher earning Americans and require 30 percent higher premiums for consumers who let coverage lapse.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates the GOP health care bill would reduce spending by $337 billion over 2017-2026 but 24 million fewer Americans would be insured with the changes, compared to Obamacare.
