According to Speaker Paul Ryan on Sunday, House Republicans are working on changes to their Obamacare replacement bill to provide more generous tax credits for older Americans. For lower-income people age 50 to 64, Ryan said of the tax credits, "We think we should be offering even more assistance than the bill currently does." He then went on to say that the GOP is working on changes in the American Health Care Act that would allow federal block grants to states for Medicaid. Even though Ryan says he feels "very good" about the health bill's prospects in the House, there are currently 40 Republican "no" votes against it.
