Mitch McConnell Seeks Votes to Help Push Health Care Bill Through Senate

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 04:57

McConnell was "basically writing it by himself behind closed doors and nobody is ever doing anything good behind closed doors", Meyers said. Each move he makes to one of the two sides risks losing support from the other. Few senators were included in the secretive drafting process, which McConnell oversaw alongside a small conclave of aides, lawmakers, and lobbyists.

"I agree with President Trump that the House bill needed more heart, and it seems that the Senate bill needs more soul", Manchin said.

Mr Obama said that though repealing and replacing Obamacare has become a core issue for Republicans, "we fought for it because we knew it would save lives, prevent financial misery, and ultimately set this country we love on a better, healthier course".

"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor".

Already conservative GOP Sens. Federal policy would continue to push people away from low-cost catastrophic coverage.

He noted that there "isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", and that to say otherwise would be a "lie".

The group said in a statement Friday it's encouraged that the Senate bill would take immediate action to stabilize shaky insurance markets by guaranteeing billions of dollars in subsidies under jeopardy due to a legal dispute and political maneuvering. Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, will put the bill up for vote in the Senate next Thursday.

It is hard to see right now what could be done to appease him. At least try it in the states that voted for it. Obamacare expands Medicaid eligibility to include Americans who are 133% above the poverty line.

As of 2017, 31 states and Washington, D.C. adopted the Medicaid expansion.

West Virginians for Affordable Health Care executive director Chantal Fields called the Senate draft "a disaster waiting to happen". "When you're talking about, for instance, nursing home care, which can be more than $10,000 a month, that's $100,000-$120,000 a year, that's expensive care", Carroll says. Only a commitment to more government payments to offset losses would keep Anthem in the Buckeye State's individual insurance marketplace. But the immediate problem is getting rid of Obamacare's Medicaid expansion. Under the Senate bill, these enrollees would no longer be covered after 2023.

A day after saying he had "serious concerns" over the Senate's health care reform bill, Sen.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which represents health insurers covering more than 100 million people in the US, said it will continue to push for a replacement for Obamacare's coverage requirement as well.
