  • Gardner talks preferences for repeal & replace Obamacare

"I have been told that the House Obamacare bill is under lock & key, in a secure location, & not available for me or the public to view", Paul echoed in a tweet of his own.

Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday expressed opposition to House GOP leaders' plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions, highlighting another division that Republicans must overcome to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

"The House is going to send something over, and you either take it or leave it", Mr. Paul told CNN of leadership's approach.

Sen. Thom Tillis was more direct when asked about where he stands on the competing ideas: "I'm all about flawless, but I'll settle for good".

White House reporters said politicians were hunting down the bill but that it had been moved from its initial location.

According to CNN, Paul ventured to the House Thursday afternoon after reports surfaced that House Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee were being granted an opportunity to review the current draft of the Obamacare repeal legislation and ask questions behind closed doors.

"Conservatives have voiced concern over what they see as a lack of transparency in the process of fulfilling President Trump's vow to" repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act. "I am perfectly confident that when it is all said and done, we are going to unify because we all, every Republican, ran on repealing and replacing, and we're going to keep our promises". As he outlined the principles he wants to include in his effort to reform US health insurance, Trump said that Americans with pre-existing conditions should still have access to coverage before adding that people should be allowed to purchase their own coverage through tax credits. "And if there are big-government replacement ideas, big-government Republicans can then work with Democrats to pass spending proposals, if they think that's what replacement is".

The app added 36 million daily active users in the first half of past year - but just 15 million in the second half, says Sky. Even at his price target, he said it would trade at a "lofty" 11 times enterprise value to sales valuation multiple.

"It's critical. I don't think we can get what we need to get done without nearly universal support", Cornyn said, noting Republicans have 52 senators and need 51 to pass the bill that will serve as the primary vehicle for dismantling the ACA. Paul said on Twitter.

The GOP plan will also provide portable, monthly tax credits for consumers to buy health insurance, the blog said.

Leadership wants a refundable tax credit, in part, because whatever they do will be compared to Obamacare.

Where's the Republicans' embryonic health care bill?

"When we heard it was secret, we wanted to see if even more", Mr. Paul said.

Paul asserted his belief that the healthcare-replacement document is being kept secret because it is "Obamacare-lite", and not a full-scale repeal that conservatives have been hoping for. "That's the bill we're working on right now, that's the bill we're working on with the Trump administration". Republican leaders are trying to avoid a repeat of what happened last time.

Kudlow said Republicans are in danger of wasting the gift they've been given.
