Barack Obama slams Republican health bill and warns millions will lose care

Parmenio Sano | 23 Giugno, 2017, 22:12

Former President Barack Obama lashed out against the Republican healthcare bill that was finally unveiled to the public after being drafted in secret for weeks.

McConnell, eager to approve the legislation next week, indicated he was open to changes before it reaches the Senate floor, but he said it was time to act. Meyers exclaimed. "That's like your doctor saying, 'I think your liver transplant was successful, but I don't know, I was at the movies'".

"It requires more time". That's a health insurance company in OH that provides coverage to thousands of Medicaid patients in the state.

The battle lines are forming tonight in the Senate over replacing Obamacare. So we're very concerned about it. And while I know that division makes it hard to listen to Americans with whom we disagree, that's what we need to do today. And like the House bill, it would restructure Medicaid, imposing per capita spending caps. Discrimination based on pre-existing conditions could become the norm again. Wisconsin Medical Society President Noel Deep says any proposal should continue affordable, quality coverage. It would allow insurance companies to charge seniors more, and sell plans that don't offer the basic care Americans expect.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will release its forecast on the Senate draft next week.


Kaiser's survey additionally revealed that strong majorities of Americans, regardless of political stripe, have favorable views of Medicaid, the government health coverage program for the poor.

You can read an in-depth analysis of the Senate version of Trumpcare here, but I warn you that it's trash. Last but not the least, when it comes to employer affordability mandate, the Senate Bill wants large employers to provide affordable coverage to most Americans. With Democrats - including U.S. Sen.

For the next two years, the Senate would also provide money that insurers use to help lower out-of-pocket costs for millions of lower income people. "The guaranteed protections and care that you have today are weakened and now, politicians in Madison will decide whether you keep the care you have, or whether it is taken away". If passed in its current form, the Senate bill would greatly weaken Medicaid, the federal-state program that provides insurance to almost 69 million people, more than any other government or private program. And she says cutting Medicaid will cost health care jobs, could force rural hospitals to close and eventually cause private insurance premiums to rise.

Democrats said the bill would result in skimpier policies and higher out-of-pocket costs for many people and erode gains made under Obama that saw roughly 20 million more Americans gain coverage.
