Rep. Andy Barr of Kentucky is also now on board after the changes promised at the White House meeting.
52 million people would be uninsured under the Republican plan in 2026.
Some moderate Republicans are nervous that the plan would cause struggling families to suffer, a prospect highlighted this week by a damning congressional projection that 24 million people could lose insurance within a decade under the new bill.
The ACA requires insurers to cover mental health and substance abuse services on par with the coverage extended for other medical care.
Will these - should these - estimates compel GOP leaders to change the bill? Opponents say it will severely limit the number of people who will have access to Medicaid because once the money runs out, it's out. The CBO found that some of the most negative effects of the AHCA would be for Trump voters.
But costs by 2026 would remain some 20 to 25 percent higher for people age 55 to 64, CBO said. To help offset new costs, the law required that all people of a certain income buy health insurance. But it's important to remember that it does not mean that premiums would decline by 10 percent, just that they would increase at a lower rate than now projected.
21 million more people would be uninsured by 2020.
Rep. David Brat, R-Va., for example, claimed that "the CBO has scored everything wrong, forever". According to the CBO, the net effect of eliminating both Obamacare's subsidies and tax increases is a $337 billion surplus from 2017 to 2026 (that is, spending drops about $1.2 trillion and nearly $900 billion of tax increases are cut). They aren't the final word on whether the current GOP plan would succeed or fail.
The official national figure of 12.2 million does not include an additional 765,000 people signed up under an option in the Obama-era law called the Basic Health Plan, which is used by two states, NY and Minnesota. The CBO didn't calculate the bill's impact on mortality. The fact that right now senators are skeptical, party activists are angry, and the health care industry is opposed are not, by themselves, unusual.
Baldwin's tweet is misleading. The cap applies to how much corporations can deduct - not the individual executive's tax liability, as PolitiFact Wisconsin noted.
The GOP plan now offers some Americans less generous subsidies but would bring market-based reforms that could encourage moreAmericans to buy insurance. The number of healthy "young invincibles" who need to sign up for Obamacare insurance policies to stem the tidal wave of red ink for insurance companies has fallen again. That panel's meeting - usually a prelude to bringing legislation to the House floor - is expected to produce amendments aimed at securing votes.
In general, other types of businesses face a $1 million deduction limit for executive compensation. They also support giving states flexibility to use work requirements and asset tests for people trying to enroll.
At least seven Republican members of the Budget Committee have made public statements in the past week indicating they want a full repeal of Obamacare, but it's unclear whether four of them will decide to go out on a limb and vote no. But Baldwin contends that the bill includes "provisions that make that far from a certainty". The chief executives of Aetna and Cigna received $17.3 million in 2015, UnitedHealth's chief executive had $14.5 million in total compensation, and Humana's chief executive received $10.3 million, CNNMoney reported.
