Protesters rally against GOP's health care plan in MemphisBy Darlene Powers Mar 21, 2017
As Vox notes, the manager's amendment does not even attempt to fix the core problems with the widely unpopular legislation. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said his boss "shares (governors') concerns about the need to protect the Medicaid expansion population and give governors more flexibility to ensure they can design programs that meet the needs of their states".
Conservative-leaning members have been especially irked since Obamacare expanded Medicaid to 11 million able-bodied adults without children.
The debate over health insurance in America comes down to this: Which will we be: a nation that provides all its citizens affordable health care or a country that views its people's health as an issue of Darwinian economic survival?

John Barrasso did offer a tepid endorsement, saying the plan was an "important first step" and that the CBO estimates don't tell the full story of what Congress and the White House will do to help Americans buy insurance. He told CNN the change would help bring along other members of his state's delegation who are now wavering on the bill.
