Senate Health Bill: What You Need To Know

Former President Barack Obama criticized a Republican Senate bill proposed Thursday that would repeal and replace parts of his signature Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, calling the measure bad for Americans and saying that it has "fundamental meanness" at its core.

Senator Bill Cassidy, who is still studying the proposal and has not yet decided how he will vote, said in several television interviews it was a good beginning. And like the House bill, it would restructure Medicaid, imposing per capita spending caps.

Overall, as rightly pointed out by Spencer Perlman, director of health-care research at Veda Partners, the Senate plan has the "same architecture" but with "nicer furnishings".

Obamacare had assured coverage to people with pre-existing ailments and restricted insurers from charging them based on health conditions.

GOP Sens. Rob Portman of OH and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia also expressed concerns about the bill's cuts to Medicaid and drug addiction efforts.

"There isn't anything in this bill that would lower premiums", Heller said.

He said now that leadership knows there are not 50 votes for the bill, he hopes a negotiation can begin. "I think there will be a lot of agreement on it, there will be some questions because it is a very hard thing with a lot of moving pieces". "And I think the Senate wanted it that way".

Yet it faces an uncertain fate in the Senate.

An analysis of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office, highlighting its expected costs and effectiveness, is expected early next week. Then, if he sticks to his timetable, Sen.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has an impossible task, which is why he is very likely to fail. If it passes the Senate, it will go to the House.

The Senate health care bill has some differences from the American Health Care Act that passed the House last month on a party-line vote without any support from Democrats.

The S.C. Hospital Association said Friday the U.S. Senate's plan to repeal and replace Obamacare "will lead to an increase in uninsured South Carolinians and disproportionately impact the state's poor, elderly and disabled community, as well as healthcare providers".

The bill was hashed out behind closed doors, a process that's dismayed many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, according to The Takeaway's Washington correspondent, Todd Zwillich. Others worry it goes too far. People would need to be lower-income than ACA to be eligible.

The Senate Republican bill is a tax giveaway to the wealthiest Americans; the top one-tenth of the one percent would receive thousands upon thousands of annual tax cuts while some individuals with disabilities lose coverage.

"We continue to share our story, Emilie's story as much as possible, to ensure the Medicaid program does not receive any cuts of any kind", Renee Saltzman said at the rally.
