Senate Republicans release bill to cut Medicaid

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 07:11

The Senate then took the House bill and, in a rushed, closed-door process, made it harsher. "The bill fails all children by leaving more families uninsured, or without insurance they can afford or that meets their basic needs".

Under the Senate's bill, titled the Better Care Reconciliation Act, that expansion would be phased out, meaning those who gained coverage through the expansion would be without once again, though they could access coverage through the individual insurance market. People could tap newly created federal tax credits.

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer called the new Bill "heartless", warning it would eventually cut Medicaid even more steeply than the House legislation, which slashes it by US$800 billion (S$1.1 trillion) over a decade.

"The chaos the Republican Party is wrecking across our health care system won't just be felt in our insurance markets but in doctor's offices, ER's and clinics across the state of in", says Myers.

The Senate bill puts the burden back on states to make up the cost, something that could be tough in Colorado, where voters have to approve all tax increases.

Flake is politically popular but faces a primary challenge from a conservative.


The bill would make significant changes to the Affordable Care Act, which Obama signed into law over seven years ago. Iowa opted to expand, and has added more than 150,000 people to its rolls since 2014. Members from the right and left ends of the Republican Party's spectrum have criticized the measure, with some denouncing its steep cuts to Medicaid and drug addiction efforts and others saying it's too similar to the ACA.

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., said Friday he will not vote for the Senate's Obamacare replacement bill as now written. Sandoval introduced Heller at the press conference with remarks explaining how the Senate bill would lose Nevada hundreds of millions of dollars to cover its low-income population.

Medicaid - the program created to help poor Americans get healthcare - will stop being expanded by 2021, meaning millions of them will not be able to access treatment.

The proposal, worked out in secret by a group led Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, aims to deliver a campaign promise of President Donald Trump by rolling back former president Barack Obama's healthcare law, which has provided coverage to millions of Americans since it was passed in 2010. But a defeat would be a bitter and damaging blow to Trump and his party.

Senators are likely to have only a handful of days to decide whether to support or vote against the 142-page bill, which was unveiled on Thursday.

"Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo", McConnell said.
