Trump promotes revamped health care bill

Trump promotes revamped health care bill

Trump has said as recently as an interview for CBS' "Face the Nation" that those with pre-existing conditions are covered "beautifully" in the bill.

As Republicans have tried to find a health-care bill on which they can reach a consensus, Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., agreed to support an amendment that would allow states to again permit insurance providers to deny coverage to people who have pre-existing conditions, as long as that state set up "high-risk pools" that would provide coverage to those in poor health who cannot get traditional insurance.

"Now, waste, fraud and abuse, I'm going to touch", Trump clarified to Dickerson.

"We're basically borrowing an idea from the state of ME that has seen a significant drop in premiums for people on their health insurance, because you take people that have pre-existing and costly conditions and put them into a high risk pool", Pence told Todd.

"This bill is much different than it was a little while ago, okay?"

"This bill has evolved". And we didn't have a failure on the bill. "You know, it was reported like a failure". Number one, as soon as I got elected, they stopped.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Of course, it's in.

"So what you've just described is the bill that you previously had said you anxious wouldn't help your people", John Dickerson said.

Mr. Trump said any hiccups in the bill that would have charged older Americans more have been "totally fixed".




"We are not going to let other countries take advantage of us anymore", he said Saturday in Harrisburg at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.

"It's not going to be left up to the states". Nobody liked it and Trump couldn't get his own party on board with it so they had to cancel the House vote and go back to the drawing board.

We're watching how Donald Trump is using this platform of unfettered communication now that he's commander in chief.

"Can you imagine if I say, 'Hey, by the way, how are you doing with North Korea?". Or than your back, as important as your back is.

On CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday, Trump said Obamacare "is dead", making it imperative for Republicans to pass a measure to replace it, giving the states more authority over provisions and, in the second phase, competition across state lines to drive down premiums.

However, unlike Trump, Pence made clear that states would be able to opt out of guaranteeing coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. "I'm not aware of any members of the Tuesday Group who were a "no" and became a "yes" because of it". I said, "Just relax, don't worry about this phony 100 day thing". Now, maybe not, you know, ultimate, but pretty good powers. I can tell you this, and a lot of people don't like when I say it, but he was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father, when his father died. "Give me another thing you learned".

Trump said getting North Korea to cease its ballistic missile tests outweighs the importance of a trade deal with China. "I think the rules in Congress and in particular the rules in the Senate are unbelievably archaic and slow-moving".

Whether Trump is speaking from a place of ignorance on the matter, being willfully deceptive, or sending an ultimatum to the House about what the bill should look like, these comments could have major implications for the legislation going forward.
