Colorado to take $15 billion hit under Senate health care bill

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 05:07

"I looked at the bill that was released this morning by the Senate", said Air Force veteran and Hendersonville resident Kelly Gregory. It also prompted an outcry from centrist senators and medical organizations anxious that it takes on the law, known as Obamacare, too aggressively and would lead to millions losing their health care or receiving fewer benefits...

Trumpcare 2.0 throws millions off healthcare, cuts Medicaid & weakens protections for pre-existing conditions.

The U.S. House of Representatives' version of the Obamcare repeal bill includes a provision in which customers must maintain coverage or pay more, but Democrats argued that conflicted with Republican President Donald Trump's promise to keep the guaranteed insurance provision of Obamacare.

Assuming every Democrat is a no vote, the GOP can't afford more than 2 of their own senators to vote against the bill. Deep said lawmakers should work to preserve several parts of Obama's signature health care law.

So right now, Senate Republicans do not have the votes to pass their own bill. Senate leaders are aiming for a vote before July 4.

A comparison of the Senate health care bill with the Affordable Care Act. 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. Obviously that means his vote could change once the bill gets amended, but it might be slightly tricky considering his reason for opposing AHCA: Medicaid. Rand Paul (R-KY) made the argument that those who might lose their Medicaid coverage due to any Obamacare repeal should be offered an affordable option for coverage.


The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that under the House bill, 23 million fewer people would have coverage by 2026.

Republicans can hide their bill, for now.

In a statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics said, "The bill fails children by dismantling the Medicaid program, capping its funding, ending its expansion and allowing its benefits to be scaled back".

Let me see if I can convince the skeptics to give the "Better Care Reconciliation Act", which is the official name of the Senate's new health care bill, a chance. In a statement, Hupfer says the necessary solution is "patient-focused, not government-controlled" health care.

Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst is suggesting Iowans would not be losing Medicaid coverage even as the Senate GOP health care bill would phase out financing to expand the low-income insurance program. How will the new Republican plan affect coverage for substance abuse treatment and care?

PEARSON: The Medicaid cuts are even more draconian than the House bill was, though they take effect more gradually than the House bill did.
