From Public Protests to Internal Opposition: Will GOP Health Bill Survive?

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 18:19

"This bill ... is not the answer".

Menendez gave his remarks at the Newark Community Health Center, a federally-funded health clinic where over 60 percent of patients rely on Medicaid to fund treatment. Elaine Rodriguez spoke for many parents saying her disabled daughter, Leandra, depends on Medicaid for medicine and oxygen. I have no idea what's going to happen.

Some of the steepest cuts would be to the commonwealth's Medicaid expansion, which covers 716,000 lower-income people statewide.

After weeks of heated discussions and arguments, Senate Republicans unveiled the text of their health care refurbish plan.

"I think we're going to get there", Trump added. It would deny coverage to many people with pre-existing conditions.

ACA: Subsidies to insurers help people pay deductibles and copays.

The state could opt to keep up the coverage, but Wolf administration officials have said the costs would be astronomical-likely more than $4 billion.


"Yes, I'll consider partial repeal", he said. With Democrats universally opposed to the Obamacare repeal efforts, Republicans can lose only two votes from their own caucus if they are to meet the 50-vote threshold required to pass the bill.

Democratic Rep. Peter Welch, who voted against a House-passed bill that would similarly roll back numerous Affordable Care Act components, said the Senate bill is even worse.

The only "improvement" the Senate version offers over the House plan is that it would wait longer to destroy Medicare recipients' coverage.

Other advocacy groups, including the American Medical Association, AARP, the American Hospital Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Association of American Medical Colleges have also criticized the bill. Controversial, because it defunds Planned Parenthood for a year and could also gut programs to treat opioid addiction - a cause championed by Gov. Chris Christie. But Portman is concerned about Medicaid policies in the bill, especially those that impact addiction treatment as OH faces a drug epidemic. So I have a feeling that the insurance they sell you on the day you have the heart attack might have a few loopholes - like not covering hearts.

McConnell wants the bill passed next week, still with no public hearings or opportunities for health care experts or advocates to have a say.

At least a half-dozen GOP senators - conservatives as well as moderates - have complained about the proposal, the secrecy with which McConnell drafted it and the speed with which he'd like to whisk it to passage.
