Medical Groups Hate the 'Literally Heartless' Senate Health Care Plan

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 07:08

Dean Heller said at a news conference this afternoon that if the current draft of the Republican health care bill were brought to the Senate floor, he would vote "no".

"In this form, I will not support it", Heller said.

Olson said the move shifts more risk to states and may prompt them to rethink who is eligible to receive care under Medicaid, putting coverage for low-income and elderly Wisconsinites at risk.

The Republican Senate's draft of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), the effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was revealed to the public this week after it was negotiated in secret.

In a separate statement, Cruz added that in its current format, the bill "does not do almost enough to lower premiums".

Appealing to Congress and the U.S. people, Mr Obama said the 142-page plan had a "fundamental meanness" at its core and was "not a healthcare bill".


The Republicans' proposal is a mean giveaway to the wealthy at the expense of Americans who rely on the Affordable Care Act.

A group of four Senate conservatives issued a joint statement saying they are dissatisfied with the health care reform bill introduced by the leadership but did not rule out negotiations to change the bill more to their liking.

Assuming every Democrat is a no vote, the GOP can't afford more than 2 of their own senators to vote against the bill.

But that ended Thursday after Senate Republicans unveiled their health care bill. It did not sound like a lengthier phase-out of the Medicaid expansion would satisfy Heller the way it might satisfy, say, Ohio Sen. And like the House bill, it would restructure Medicaid, imposing per capita spending caps. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell smiles as he leaves the chamber after announcing the release of the Republicans' healthcare bill. Before the expansion, he said 18 percent of children were without health insurance.

He wrote, "It remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need". The Senate Bill, however, will allow insurers to provide less than needed coverage in states that get waivers for essential health benefits. Early next week, the Congressional Budge Office will submit a report evaluating how many people would lose their insurance due to the bill as well as its impact on the federal budget. Here's a breakdown of the percentage of federal funding each state receives, with those in dark blue receiving the most support.
