Hoping to appeal to more conservative members of Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) submitted amendment packages to the Republican health care plan on Monday night, three days before the scheduled vote on the House floor. The changes include sharper cuts to Medicaid, including giving states the ability to impose work requirements for recipients, repealing tax increases this year instead of in 2018, and letting the Senate approve tax credits for people between the ages of 50 and 64. While Ryan's camp believes this will help him get to the 216 votes needed to pass the bill to the Senate, several conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus say there still are not enough votes.
