Top House Republicans have released a slate of revisions for their Obamacare replacement that they hope will draw more support. The American Health Care Act has been sharply criticized by members of both parties; an analysis from the Congressional Budget Office estimated that nearly 24 million people would lose their coverage under the plan. RELATED: Who wins and loses under the GOP's health care proposal?  Why a proposed Medicaid cut terrifies the parents of a severely disabled man Do high-deductible plans make the health care system better? A House vote on the changes is expected Thursday night. About 20 members of the Freedom Caucus — some of the most conservative people in the House — are not happy with the measure, arguing that it’s not enough to undo Obamacare. If those folks hold firm, then this bill will struggle. In the meantime, here’s a look at some of the proposed changes: Tax credits: The House bill gives the Senate the option to grant Americans age 50 to 64 more generous federal support for insurance premiums. Republicans in the House are setting aside $75 billion in additional tax credits.  But net premiums (the amount paid out of pocket) would rise by thousands over the next nine years. The House bill would have to provide lower-income older people with around $13,000 in tax credits by 2026 in order to compensate, according to the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.   These amendments will also end most of the Obamacare tax credits a year sooner. Work requirements: There are a number of changes to Medicaid, a program for low-income Americans, children seniors, and people with disabilities. States could require that some Medicaid recipients work or take part in job-training programs or community service. But lots of people on Medicaid who can work already do work. Seventy-eight percent of Medicaid recipients are in families with at least one worker. Lump sums: This legislation cuts funding to states by nearly $1 trillion over the first decade. For decades, conservatives have wanted to shrink the size of Medicaid. The amendment gives states the option of receiving a lump sum of money from the federal government, also known as a block grant, instead of the per-person payment cap.  However, this could also mean fewer dollars from Washington. Under the current system, the federal government matches payments from the state without funding limits.

As Bloomberg describes tonight, H-1B visa applications are due at the beginning of April, so if the Trump Administration fails to implement its fixes by then, it's at least a year before they'll have any effect. Moreover, the lack of apparent momentum on this front does not bode well for meaningful changes. ... the program has moved almost entirely away from its original goals. One aim was to import workers when employers couldn't find qualified Americans. The second was to cap the number of H-1B holders, since both the bill's drafters and industry lobbyists wanted companies to bring in

Trump may just be blowing smoke when he talks about tariffs and border-adjustment taxes....The collapse of American manufacturing towns, and the old industrial middle class, has gone hand in hand with a staggering 40-year rise in the dollar, Klody observed.

The second important factor in real estate is financing.  Not everyone has money, so what can they do?  The answers were shocking.  Be ‘creative' was the first response.  Pool your money, borrow from friends and family, own just 5% of a house, get the money however you can and just do it - remember, it only goes up.  Other financing suggestions were get cozy with a lender and they will ‘bend the rules' for you!  The fact that the biggest condo developer in Canada (Brad Lamb) said lenders will bend (but not break, apparently) rules to get you financing in front of 15k people with

``The new version of the program would ... devolve Medicaid to the states and reimburse them using a predetermined formula that, as the Congressional Budget Office and other experts have concluded, would not actually keep up with the cost of care. As the federal contribution toward Medicaid eroded over time, states could make up the difference on their own or ― more likely ― they could make cuts in who or what the program covers. The federal guarantee would be over, and with it, the Medicaid program as we know it. ''
