Welch: Trump health care turnaround blindsided GOP

Trump says GOP senators are working on an Obamacare replacement and it will be ‘spectacular

According to a new Urban Institute study, abolishing the ACA without anything to replace it would cause 20 million Americans to lose their health insurance.

U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor ruled a year ago that ObamaCare is no longer constitutional because the Republican tax overhaul eliminated the health care law's penalty for not having health insurance.

But beyond pre-existing conditions protections, Mulvaney did not address how the 8.4 million Americans who have coverage through HealthCare.gov and state exchanges would all maintain their coverage under a potential GOP replacement plan.

After years of running away from his implementation, as MA governor, of a health care overhaul that helped inspire Obamacare, freshman Sen.

"Yes", he said when asked by ABC's "This Week" host Jon Karl if he could guarantee that those with current health coverage under ObamaCare would keep their coverage even if the administration is successful at getting a court to rule the health law unconstitutional. He says Republicans are working on a replacement plan, but Congressman Peter Welch says that simply isn't true.

A common thread in the various health care cases is that they involve lower-court rulings for now, and there's no telling how they may ultimately be decided.

But he has told confidants he thinks his administration won't prevail in the lawsuit it joined, where state attorneys general and GOP governors are seeking to strike down the entire Obamacare law, Axios reported.

"The Association Health Plan rule opened healthcare options for dozens of associations representing thousands of small businesses and sole proprietors and provided them with access to the same type of care options offered by other employers", the spokesman continued.

The lawsuit was brought by NY, 10 other states and the District of Columbia past year. "Before the president said what he said, they'd been consistently focused on working on a healthcare plan". It's now fully supported by the Trump administration, which earlier had argued that only the law's protections for people with pre-existing conditions and its limits on how much insurers could charge older, sicker customers were constitutionally tainted. Bates found that administration regulations creating the plans were "clearly an end-run" around the Obama health law and also ran afoul of other federal laws governing employee benefits. The administration, unable to repeal ObamaCare or enact conservative changes through Congress, has used its regulatory authority to try to push through changes to the Medicaid program and private insurance.
