Here's the path the health bill could take in the Senate

Fresh off his health care victory in the House, President Donald Trump says he's optimistic that the bill will successfully pass in the Senate as well.

"They're going to have to come up with a bill that meets this 50-vote threshold by pleasing camps that are arguably even more polarized than Republicans in the House of Representative", Hayes said. The Congressional Budget Office, the non-partisan government analysis agency, estimated as many as 24 million under a previous version of the bill.

The AHCA is also poised to defund Planned Parenthood, a major provider of female health services throughout the country, and remove requirements for health care insurers to provide pregnancy, maternity and newborn care. They've already put together a group to work on making revisions and say they're determined to get it done right, not quickly.

"I think we'll get it through". "The Republicans are very united like seldom before". "And if it takes a Democrat to go in and do it for them for a while, I'll explain what's in this bill".

"If the coverage [offered under the bill] is unaffordable, that doesn't do any good for a child who has juvenile diabetes", she said.

But some local leaders believe the health overhaul could be devastating. That CBO score was published on March 13 - almost two months ago.

They accuse Republicans of seeking tax cuts for the rich, partly paid for by cutting health benefits.

The House has been working on a bill to repeal and replace the ACA, and throughout the process, I have been adamant that the replacement plan needs to ensure people with pre-existing conditions have access to affordable health insurance.

This bill, which President Trump supports, will make health insurance more affordable across the board, allow states to better manage their unsustainable Medicaid programs, and repeal job-killing taxes and regulations, while still protecting people with pre-existing conditions. For example, someone with asthma would experience a premium surcharge of $4,340, while someone who suffers from diabetes would face a $5,600-per-year increase.

Indeed Democrats seemed practically giddy as the vote closed on the House floor, jeering at Republicans with chants of "nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey, goodbye" - an echo of how protesters serenaded Democrats seven years ago when they passed Obama's bill.
