GOP, Dem governors agree with Trump, call health bill 'mean'

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:45

The Affordable Care Act repeal bill passed by the House in May, which has helped guide the Senate discussions, would slash federal health care assistance to low- and moderate-income Americans by almost $1 trillion and increase the number of uninsured by 23 million over the next decade, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

"It was the worst piece of legislation, frankly, against working class people that I can remember in my political life in the Congress. Throwing 23 million people off of health insurance is beyond belief", said Sanders.

The group's 30-second ad, which features a financial adviser speaking to a couple older than 50, says the House bill imposes an "age tax" and allows insurers to charge "thousands more" for people with pre-existing conditions such as asthma.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Republican from Kentucky, has been under criticism for writing the Senate version of the overhaul bill behind closed doors. It was a startling slap at legislation that was shepherded by Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and whose passage the president lobbied for and praised. But it's a move that would likely alienate the more conservative wing of the GOP, and the Republicans can only afford to lose two votes if they want to pass a healthcare bill through budget reconciliation.

House Republicans said they supported both maintaining the Medicaid expansion and the bulk of majority Democrats' plan. Another said Trump used a vulgar phrase to describe the House bill and told the senators, "We need to be more generous".

"The House bill is just unacceptable to me, " said Governor John Kasich of OH, a Republican.

It would also placate, somewhat, the numerous activists concerned that Democrats are not fighting Republicans in their attempt to take health care away from millions of people.


Republicans in Congress are bumping up against a harsh reality: "Repeal Obamacare" might sound good on the campaign trail, but it doesn't look so good when you find out who gets hurt.

CNN reported on Saturday, citing unnamed sources, that Democrats are considering steps to halt Senate business to protest Republicans working on their health bill in secret. "My constituents expect me to know, and if we had utilized the process that goes through a committee, I would be able to answer not only your questions but my constituents' questions".

"They're ashamed of the bill", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor on June 12.

Besides Bullock and Kasich, whose states Trump won in 2016, Republicans Brian Sandoval of Nevada and Charlie Baker of MA signed the letter. The Democrats who added their names were John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, John Hickenlooper of Colorado, and Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania.

AARP also has expressed worries that the House health care bill will cut Medicaid funding, which provides support for the disabled and elderly, as well as the poor. "This is a small cost to bear to ensure that most people in our state have health insurance".

Although specifics, to the extent there are any, have largely stayed secret, some of the policies under consideration have slipped out, and pressure points of the debate are fairly clear.

More than 2.5 million people in the seven states were enrolled in Medicaid under the expanded access allowed by the 2010 law as of previous year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
