Two prominent Republican opponents of the House GOP’s Obamacare repeal bill reversed course and backed the measure Wednesday morning, after negotiating a last-minute amendment with President Donald Trump at the White House.

Reps. Fred Upton of Michigan and Billy Long of Missouri, whose defections this week rattled rank-and-file Republicans, emerged from their session with the president and said an amendment to add $8 billion to help cover people with pre-existing conditions would return them to the “yes” column on the bill.

Though there were concerns the revised measure might repel conservatives already reluctant to back the GOP plan, early signals suggested most would remain on board.

“I believe they will find broad support among [House Freedom Caucus] members for their amendment,” said caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) in a statement to POLITICO.

    These politicians are making it sound like they are doing something so good when they know they are only trying to protect a failing medical health system. The only way this gets fixed is through a few years of pain by stopping all insurance plans and pay as you go. The medical system was destroyed by health insurance plans.
    I am old enough to remember my parents giving the doctor a check when we left his office. This amount of money was well within our budget to pay. Today young parents could never pay a medical bill because the insurance industry has raised the costs to a rate that is not realistic to pay. This is why insurance has gotten too expensive.
    The number of people getting services now exceeds the medical monster they have created. You can not make a new insurance plan that will cover everyone and cost less money UNLESS you control the services it provides.

    Medical care centers are only getting a percentage of there billable charges because this is the way the insurance industry has it setup. They need to show extremely high rates for the non insured patient so they can claim their standard procedure pricing.
    Stop this viscous cycle and drop insurance for everyday items. Create a catastrophic insurance policy for hospitalization events only. Make the medical system be honorable again and work for the benefit of humanity and not for the all mighty dollar.
