The cost-sharing reduction payments subsidize insurers for keeping out-of-pocket costs down for low income consumers, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
The text is expected to allow states to waive out of a number of Obamacare's Title I regulations, which conservatives argue is the only way to bring premiums down in a meaningful way, while ensuring those with preexisting conditions remain covered. Roughly three-quarters of Republicans prefer repealing and replacing the ACA, but more than 6 in 10 independents and almost 9 in 10 Democrats favor working within its framework. Ryan's first stab at passing a replacement bill went down in flames last month, when he had to yank the bill off the floor because it lacked the votes.
On April 19, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) commented that lawmakers were negotiating "finishing touches" on their second attempt at overhauling the PPACA. "When you have a problem in business, you don't say 'I can't get it done, so I'll just close my doors.' Work hard to fix it".

"The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members.Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall, Trump said in a series of tweet".
Both sentiments echo criticisms of the ACA's 2010 passage on a party-line vote.

US President Donald Trump has reiterated his stance that ObamaCare - the healthcare policy of previous president, Barack Obama is in trouble. For several years, polls showed more opposition than support, but the law's popularity rose sharply after Trump's election. Polls this winter found widespread opposition to the GOP alternative.
Among the changes are waivers from a provision requiring insurers to cover "essential health benefits" such as mental health and maternity, as well as for a rule that prevents health insurers from raising premiums for people with pre-existing conditions. "Let's do what people agree with now".
Perhaps that should have bee worded differently, but yes, if TrumpCare becomes law, Americans will definitely see the quality of their health care coverage "tumbling down".
"Either this ends up costing the federal government more money, or there's chaos that leads to people losing their health insurance", said the Kaiser Foundation's Levitt. It's unclear if the revised plan alters the original's much-maligned Medicaid provisions. Just under half of Republicans (46 percent) favor federal requirements, with support at 67 percent among independents and 80 percent among Democrats. Currently, the federal government is spending $7 billion a year to lower deductibles and co-pays for about 8.4 million customers. But as a two-time cancer survivor, the independent worries what coverage would be available for people like her.
During the past seven years, states have diverged in their approach to a central aspect of the ACA, with most Democratic-led states accepting federal funding to expand Medicaid and most Republican-led states resisting.
