Tell your senators to kill secret health care bill

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 23:59

Heller spoke at a news conference in Las Vegas with Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican who has also assailed the House and Senate health care bills for cutting Medicaid.

The latest Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act is being shunned by U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow.

McConnell, R-Ky., can not pass the bill if he loses more than two Republican votes.

The four are sticking together to get changes such as fewer government subsidies created to make health insurance more affordable. "And now the Senate doubling down on that I think means, it's extra mean". He said Friday he would vote against the bill in its current form but did not rule out supporting a revamped, final version of it. "There's still an opportunity to make this bill better", he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been criticized for drafting the bill in secret with just a dozen Republican Senate colleagues, says the proposal - which he calls a discussion draft - will stabilize insurance markets, strengthen Medicaid and cut costs to consumers.

"I have very serious concerns about the bill", Collins said in an interview with ABC's This Week. "Well, they're also four good guys, four friends of mine, and I think that they'll probably get there", he said.


The GOP-controlled Senate bill introduced Thursday would phase out federal money to states which opted to expand the low-income health insurance program.

Meanwhile, a new poll published by the Kaiser Family found 51 percent of Americans view the existing Affordable Care Act favorably compared with 30 percent who favor replacing it. If it fails to reduce the deficit sufficiently or results in too many people losing insurance coverage, McConnell could fail to secure the 50 GOP votes he needs to secure passage. He said the Medicaid cuts contained in the Senate bill are even deeper than the House version.

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". Several other Republicans, including moderate Susan Collins of ME, are still undecided about the legislation.

House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that he hopes to bring the bill - which was unveiled Thursday - to the floor for a vote as early as next week. That likely would end the program in MI, one of eight states that expanded Medicaid with the caveat that the expansion would end if federal funding declined.

"At its core, this Senate plan is very similar to the House plan in its contours and shape", Zwillich says.
