Trumpcare revival talks falling apart ahead of Pence meeting

The Freedom Caucus and conservative group perspective: The bill’s text is changing for the worse, and it no longer looks like some of the Obamacare regulations will be waived. Conservatives are growing doubtful that the White House and House leadership are willing to get rid of Obamacare’s ban on charging sick people higher premiums. Conservatives also want to know what leadership has to say about the “medical loss ratio,” or the Obamacare regulation limiting how much of insurers’ revenue can be profit.

They’re also not happy about the accusation that getting rid of the Obamacare ban on charging higher premiums would nullify its protections for pre-existing conditions.

A Freedom Caucus source: “We’ve never ever wanted to go after pre-existing conditions. That’s spin (well a lie) meant to undermine us. Pence said he supports our plan of reforming, and funding changes to high risk pools, specifically to deal with pre-existing conditions.”
