A panel discussion that includes local health officials, a former Maryland Health Connection navigator and a former Carroll doctor who is a member of the Maryland Health Care is a Human Right campaign and has been a staunch critic of Obamacare should make for lively and informative discussion on the topic.
Trump's remarks came on a day when he met with state politicians who were concerned about constituents losing their health coverage if the us government repeals the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as "Obamacare".
It has taken forever to finally make it to the public eye, but thanks to a leaked draft bill, Americans are finally getting a view of what a GOP replacement plan for Obamacare may look like. "This is not what we are asking for".
"People are madder than hops about this".
Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said he agreed with his fellow Republicans in Congress that "the federal government shouldn't have to pay for it (Medicaid) alone". "I think you're going to like what you hear", Trump said.
Republican governors from Iowa, Indiana and MA declined to discuss the details of their meetings with Trump, congressional leaders and health care industry officials.
Under the White House proposal, Trump will request $54 billion in the upcoming defense budget - a 10 percent - and is expected to request another $30 billion in additional military spending in the still unapproved fiscal year 2017 budget, The Washington Post reports.

Healthcare providers, hospitals and physicians alike, are confronted by patients who are now payers: paying first-dollar coverage out-of-pocket whether in high deductible health plans, working through health savings accounts, or paying @retail without insurance or under-insured.
Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky, a critic of Medicaid expansion in his state, argued the Affordable Care Act has been hurting health care affordability overall.
The report said the combination of phasing out Medicaid expansion money from the USA government, plus transforming the overall program from an open-ended federal entitlement to one that operates under a cap would likely result in state funding gaps.
"The first priority in this should be making sure we're protecting the most vulnerable Kansans", Jordan said.

Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows both cited concerns over the plan's refundable tax credits, saying it amounts to the creation of a new entitlement program.
