Paul Ryan confident GOP's health overhaul will pass this week

Lawmakers plan to have the healthcare legislation on the House floor this Thursday, Ryan said. That's kind of a big problem from Trump, and any Republican who has to look forward to running for re-election in next year with a president whose legitimacy is in serious question. Here is the central prize: "If we lower premiums, and hopefully lower them a lot, that is a victory for the American people".

The GOP bill as now written offers a fixed tax credit for low- and middle-income Americans that rises by age.

That, according to the CBO estimate, leads to substantial cost savings that - together with cuts to Medicaid - allow the GOP plan to eliminate almost all of the taxes imposed under the ACA. "If the bill were brought to the floor today, it would fail to get enough votes".
"We believe we should have even more assistance. You have to stop them".
"We're still having conversations with our members", Ryan said.
