"But I can also assure you my staff did". I mean, I don't think that's being [obstructionist].

The President congratulated and thanked House Speaker Paul Ryan and praised House Republicans for coming together. "And more importantly, we're keeping our word". "And that's what we're doing". They all know what is going on.

"The Democrats were singing on the House floor, singing on the House floor after the vote", the GOP congressman said on "The Jerry Bader Show". "Because our system has evolved in such a way where presidential leadership is often the only thing that is able to resolve very hard legislative issues".

A political group with ties to House Republican leadership is buying $500,000 in television time to promote the Republican health care bill. Bill Cassidy, wants to guarantee care for people with pre-existing conditions.

Last week House Republicans approved a health care law created to replace Obama's law, commonly called "Obamacare".

Mike Gallagher said Monday that his fellow Republicans were "irresponsible" for celebrating the House's passage of the American Health Care Act at the White House.

But White House officials acknowledge the Senate, where the Republicans hold a slim majority, may be the biggest hurdle yet.

Another ad launched unusually early in the congressional re-election season comes from AARP, and targets House Republicans, warning that people with pre-existing conditions could face premium hikes of as much as $25,000 a year under the House-passed bill. "It is more about politics", said Democratic Sen.

When George Stephanopoulos noted that significant amendments were made to the bill, Ryan said the final amendment "was three pages long".

And under the Affordable Care Act, healthier and wealthier Americans pay a bit more so sicker and poorer Americans don't die.

Priebus also downplayed concerned about the House bill's implications for individuals with preexisting conditions.

"I don't think we should pass bills that we haven't read, that we don't know what they cost", Ryan told Watson at the time.

President Donald Trump is urging Senate Republicans to "not let the American people down". "We work very hard to insure 24 million people plus, so we need to keep moving forward to make the Affordable Care Act better rather than repeal it".

"The House bill is not going to come before us", Collins said Sunday on ABC's "This Week".

The bill was amended for the second try, adding a modest pool of money they say would help people with pre-existing medical conditions afford coverage. Some Senate Republicans, including Rob Portman of Ohio, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, object to cutting $880 billion from Medicaid.
