So, it's fair to ask, what he would gain by pushing through health coverage reforms that would not just alienate, but also inflame, his Senate opposition and countless voters. He said he wouldn't vote for a bill that that "takes insurance away from tens of millions of Americans", which is sort of the bread-and-butter of Republican health policy.
The problem is Republicans will likely be heading the wrong direction if they try to pick up hard-line repeal advocates Sens.
In a press conference with Nevada governor Brian Sandoval today, Senator Dean Heller joined his colleague Susan Collins in taking a very negative, and possibly irreconcilable, position on the Senate version of the American Health Care Act.
Heller expressed particular concerns about the bill's impact on Medicaid, and especially on states, such as Nevada, that expanded Medicaid under Obamacare. A fourth said he anxious the process was rushed.
But the measure landed in rough seas ahead of a vote that Sen.
The federal government's share of funding for Medicaid, which is jointly run with individual states, would fall over the course of seven years to end up at around 57 percent of the cost of that program, which offers health coverage to the poor.
But Trump said the exact same thing about the House version of the bill, which, while mirroring numerous House's goals, was far more conservative. They also say the draft legislation does not do enough to lower health care premiums.
Democrats were hoping to scare off as many Republican votes as possible by planning efforts around the country to criticize the measure.
As he has multiple times since the ACA's passage in 2010, Obama conceded that the bill was less than flawless and vowed to support any Republican-backed bill that "is demonstrably better than the improvements we made to our health care system, that covers as many people at less cost". A capital-gains tax cut for the most affluent Americans would be retroactive to the beginning of this year.
Assuming every Democrat is a no vote, the GOP can't afford more than 2 of their own senators to vote against the bill. They were Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas. Three of them said they anxious it does not go far enough in repealing the ACA, known as Obamacare.
President Donald Trump keeps revealing he either doesn't know or doesn't care about the effects of the health care bill making its way through Congress. "It's the only way I'm going to vote yes". "We'll have to see".
Several GOP senators pressed Senate leaders, unsuccessfully, to include additional funding for addiction treatment to compensate for the spending cuts to Medicaid.
The House's health care bill passed in the first week of May, and Trump celebrated with a party in the Rose Garden. It is, to borrow President Trump's behind the scenes assessment of the House's bill, mean.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects to release its analysis of the Senate plan early next week. The Senate version is, in some respects, more moderate than the House bill, offering more financial assistance to some lower-income people to help them defray the rapidly rising cost of private health insurance. The enhanced federal financing that pays for the expansion would disappear entirely in 2024. The subsidies help reduce deductibles and copayments for people with modest incomes.
Andy Slavitt understands the inner workings of the USA health care system better than most.
That would focus the aid more on people with lower incomes than the House legislation, which bases its subsidies on age. Congressional Republicans have vowed since its introduction in 2010 to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act .
Rand Paul (R-KY), Ron Johnson (R-WI), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) say they "are not ready" to vote for the bill. That means funding will increase more slowly than cost of care, resulting in deep cuts to the program over time.
And we have one goal: "winning in 2018". "We just don't have either one of those in the present leadership". And control of the House of Representatives could still be in play in the 2018 midterm elections .
