The legislation Congress was considering this week missed that mark and did not meet my goals for an Obamacare replacement plan: greater access for the American people, better options for all patients and lower costs across the health care market. The measure lacked the 218 necessary votes.
Pelosi, unruffled by the at times unruly crowd, noted: "I supported single payer since before you were born". Over the past few days, something referred to as, quote, "essential health benefits" became one of the biggest sticking points in the health care debate.
LEVEY: That's right. And the reason it was put into the law to begin with was a feeling by the architects of the Affordable Care Act that too many Americans were getting stuck with health insurance plans that didn't cover the kinds of benefits that they needed. The most important thing that has ever helped me and my family was Obamacare.
With the federal funding still part of the ACA, Kansas lawmakers just last week were forging ahead and now have a hurdle lifted with the law in place for the "foreseeable" future as Speaker Ryan said.
"We've learned that the FBI is investigating Trump campaign operatives for potential ties to Russian Federation", he said.
While Republicans are less likely than Democrats overall to say they approve of the 2010 health care law or to say that the government is responsible for ensuring health care coverage, there are key differences among Republicans on these questions, particularly by income and education.
Yesterday, the Republican party announced that they are no longer holding the vote to repeal Obamacare as they could not get enough supporters.

Global climate breaks multiple records in 2016: WMO
Last year, globally averaged sea surface temperatures were the warmest on record, following a record set the previous year. We are now in truly uncharted territory, said World Climate Research Programme Director David Carlson.
Along with health care, Warren highlighted immigration and the federal budget as the policy areas most critical for MA.
Earlier this week, Blackburn unveiled an amended version of the bill, saying changes were made after listening to Americans' concerns.
That's not going to happen this month. Under the new health care act, states can cut off Medicaid coverage for women who do not find jobs within 60 days of giving birth.
Nicholas Bagley, a law professor at the University of MI, argues that it's not actually clear how the repeal of the essential health benefits is going to work: whether it simply requires states to set the scope of the benefits in each of the 10 categories specified by the law, or whether they have carte blanche to start over and decide that, say, acupuncture is the only thing insurance must cover.
Yet Congress is now considering the American Health Care Act-a bill that would do just that.
An analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that five states - Alabama, Alaska, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Wyoming - have only one insurance company selling policies on the Obamacare exchanges. This year, my premium has almost doubled, and paying for coverage, plus the deductibles, is a struggle. To do nothing forgoes the opportunity to transform our health care system into something better. The Trump administration is chipping away at it. It would also increase flexibility for health savings accounts and would take a substantial first step toward Medicaid reform.
