Republican backlash over Trump-backed health care bill

Republican backlash over Trump-backed health care billUS President Donald Trump faced mounting concern from fellow Republicans Tuesday over their party’s plan to replace Obamacare, with conservatives warning the bill was too similar to existing controversial health care law. Several far-right lawmakers said the Republican plan abandons conservative fiscal principles by maintaining government subsidies of the Affordable Care Act, but under the guise of “refundable tax credits” for people to purchase their own health insurance. “This is Obamacare Lite, it will not pass,” fumed Senator Rand Paul on Fox News.
