Most young people say gov't should pay for health care

Gallup also found that 26% of those surveyed favored keeping the ACA in place as it is. Something this significant deserves more than one week of intensive coverage every few years - it warrants consistent communication between citizens, health care providers, lawmakers and everyone in between. "Absolutely. I think it's only fair for people who have had preexisting conditions, that they continue to be covered".

Recent news accounts indicate that the Trump Administration and House Republicans are attempting to revive legislative attempts that would repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

President Trump speaks on March 24, 2017 after the GOP health care bill failed to get enough votes.

The House of Representatives is set to leave town Thursday morning for a two-week break without reaching an agreement on health care.

"We have looked at it and you could argue it strengthens it in as much as it makes the bill much worse", responds Drew White, federal policy analyst at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. However, those who say the bill's failure was a good thing are split almost equally between those who don't want to see the Affordable Care Act repealed at all (31% overall) and those who want it repealed but had concerns about the Republican bill (29% overall).

Weather forecast: Mainly sunny, relatively warm skies to prevail
With the wind remaining gentle and skies staying partly cloudy, it will be a almost picture ideal day in Central New York. If this rain holds together, some rain totals, especially along and north of I-10 and I-12, could climb above 6 inches.

President Donald Trump has turned his focus to tax reform, but he's put Vice President Pence in charge of corralling Republicans to push a new revised health care bill through congress. And the 55 percent approval number is all the more dramatic because just five months ago, only 42 percent of Americans approved of ObamaCare, versus 53 percent who disapproved.

The Affordable Care Act was long considered a political liability, and opposition to it is thought to have helped the GOP take control of first the House and then the Senate from 2010 onwards. My understanding is that those who have insurance pay 10 percent to 15 percent of premiums for those who do not have insurance, so that the doctors and hospitals are there when we all need them. Trump and the Republicans will not plausibly be able to present themselves as bystanders to an economic trauma that they promised (and failed) to avert.

"Everybody wants it to be done - I would have loved to have had it done last week", Meadows told reporters.

It was already hard for them to decide which states to sell plans in and how to set rates in new marketplaces with consumers who in some cases hadn't been insured in years.
