10, 2019 — Republican House leaders are still grappling with how to pass their health care legislation.
That’s after they unveiled their plan for repealing the Affordable Care Act, which they called “Obamacare Lite” during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.
While the plan was touted as a major step toward repealing the law, it has drawn a heavy backlash from conservatives and moderates, who argue it would lead to millions of Americans losing health insurance.
Here are the key takeaways from the day.
Trump vows to bring GOP health care bill to House Republicans after a House GOP meeting to discuss repeal, but it’s unclear how soon the president can deliver on his campaign promises.

What is the Republican health care repeal plan?
It’s a complicated bill that includes many provisions that would have been part of the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA), but it would not have been the replacement for it.
That means that even as Trump announced his plan, he hasn’t made it public, even though his administration has been touting it as a key component of its repeal effort.
That has left GOP leaders scrambling to figure out how to craft the plan, and whether it would still pass the House, which is controlled by the party’s leaders.
The president’s announcement is not expected to be part of that effort, and Republican leaders said they’re still looking into the plan and trying to figure it out.
“It is a very complicated bill, and we still have many ideas,” said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla.
“There are a lot that are still being worked out, and I’m not going to get into the specifics right now.
But I think the president has been very clear about that.”
The plan includes a series of provisions that Trump promised would help repeal the ACA, including a requirement that the law’s insurance mandates be phased out over time.
That plan has already been challenged by health care advocates, with some of them suggesting that it will be more difficult to implement than the ACA.
A key component, however, would be a repeal of the requirement that insurance companies cover the cost of people with preexisting conditions.
Many conservatives are concerned that this could lead to a lot more people losing coverage.
Cole and other GOP lawmakers, however — including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R/T, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R+W — have said they are still working out how the repeal will work, and said they plan to have a final plan in place by the end of the week.
The Senate has already passed its health care plan.
The House, meanwhile, is still working on its plan.
That includes the Senate’s replacement of the ACA with one of its own.
The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that the Senate plan would provide insurance coverage to an estimated 12 million fewer people than the House’s proposal.
That could result in millions of people losing their health insurance coverage, and it is unclear what would happen to people who lost their coverage before the plan went into effect.
Some people, including Trump, said that the GOP plan would result in more people getting health insurance than would have happened if they stayed on Obamacare.
The CBO has also projected that repealing the ACA would result at least in the loss of more than a million jobs.
However, the CBO has not yet estimated what that loss would be.
House Republicans are also working on a new health care proposal that is a bit more comprehensive than the one that the president’s team unveiled.
That proposal is a combination of three different proposals: A “skinny repeal” of the current ACA that would replace many of the regulations on the law with some new ones.
The idea is that if the president wanted to get rid of some of the rules and regulations that make insurance affordable, he could just go ahead and repeal those regulations, which could reduce premiums for some consumers.
A “reconciliation” plan that would repeal the individual mandate and other taxes.
The plan is a compromise of two of the three proposals that Republicans put forward during the Trump campaign, with one plan allowing states to opt out of the individual and employer mandates.
The other two proposals would leave in place some of Obamacare’s tax credits, which have been a key part of many people’s plans and have helped lower premiums for many Americans.
The reconciliation plan also includes a requirement for people to purchase insurance through state-run exchanges.
The Republican plan does not provide details on what kind of insurance consumers would have to buy through the state exchanges.
Trump said the plan would also allow people to choose between purchasing private coverage through their employer or the government exchanges.
He said he would make a decision about which insurance plans they choose when the new year rolls around. The final
