New poll shows majority of Americans are unaware Trumpcare slashes Medicaid

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 14:55

"It should scare every American that the Senate plans to vote on this bill without understanding the true ramifications". The Republican-majority House passed a similar version of health care legislation last month. "And I believe the leverage on account of four people is enough that hopefully those who wrote the bill will say 'we want some, or all, of their votes, and therefore we'll try to make the bill look more like a repeal bill, and less like a reiteration of Obamacare bill'". Toomey should help fix them instead of taking us backward. Almost three-quarters of Americans, 74 percent, said they favored Medicaid. S. Toomey must vote no on the Senate bill.

For instance, the Senate GOP proposal would still forbid insurance companies from raising premiums or withholding coverage to people with preexisting medical problems - one of the hallmarks of the Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare.

- Eliminates most of the Obamacare tax increases. "However, it is also critical that strong incentives for people to keep continuous coverage be included to ensure a balanced market", the lobby group said.

States will be allowed to seek waivers from certain Obamacare requirements.

The Senate health-care bill will be up for debate and amendment, and could be improved. It would put health care out of reach for many middle-income Americans. She was asked about the bill's impact on lower-income Iowans now covered by Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.


It differs with the House version in a few places, such as providing income-based tax credits to give some financial support to people with lower incomes.

Perhaps the most sweeping move, however, is that the Senate plan follows the House lead in completely changing how the government pays for health care for the poor and the disabled - and goes even further.

To get a better sense of what that would mean on a state-by-state basis - and who might be hardest-hit by a rollback - we charted out some of the key aspects of Medicaid and the expansion under the ACA.

But Medicaid has been eating up an ever-larger share of federal spending. "It's simply not the answer", Heller said at a press conference in Las Vegas for Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican. "The program has been a great success and a model for other states to follow". The question doesn't distinguish between House and Senate bills, and doesn't identify the effort with a specific party.

The Republican senator told reporters Friday, "I wouldn't say they are losing it". The Kentucky Republican aims to have a vote on the proposed legislation next week, prior to Congress' July 4 recess.
