House Leadership Seeks to Revive Health Care Bill - Protection for pre-existing conditions now is in jeopardy. As Congress begins its two-week spring recess, the leadership of the House of Representatives is trying to revive the health care bill that was pulled from a vote on the House floor late last month in the face of widespread opposition. The legislation, called the American Health Care Act (AHCA), was roundly condemned after projections from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office and others said it would lead to a loss of coverage for 24 million Americans over the next decade, drive up premiums dramatically for people ages 50 to 64, weaken Medicare, and give tax breaks to the tune of $200 billion to insurance companies, drugmakers and other industries.
