What the Health-Care Vote Means for the Midterm Elections

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 20:34

Republicans view the law, formally known as the Affordable Care Act, as a costly government intrusion and say individual insurance markets created by it are collapsing. He said it only benefits millionaires.

The Senate proposal is broadly similar to the bill passed by House Republicans last month, with a few notable differences.

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had some strong words for the Republican Party on Friday, saying that if Congress manages to pass the Senate health care bill, the GOP will become the "death party".

Whether these protests are enough to kill the bill, or are anything more than political theater, remains to be seen. It's really scary. She's going to die, it's a reality.

"There's been no indication from the current administration, or from Congress, that the subsidies that are now going to insurance companies will continue", said Vilsack.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., speaks to reporters at the Capitol after Republicans released their long-awaited bill to scuttle much of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, at the Capitol in Washington, Thursday, June 22, 2017.

Obamacare extended coverage to some 20 million additional Americans through both subsidized private insurance and an expansion of Medicaid.

- Protects those with pre-existing conditions from getting charged more, but their coverage could be reduced. The deep cuts to Medicaid likely mean about 20 million Americans will lose their health insurance, including 4.5 million Californians.

- Restricts subsidies that help lower-income families afford premiums.

If three Republican Senators vote no on the Senate legislation, the measure will fail.

"I want to get to yes, and the way to get to yes is to fix the underlying problems".

He said the bill would also jeopardize addiction treatment programs for people with opioid addictions. Veteran Senator John McCain said the draft bill was better than Obamacare in "100 ways", but like many Senators wanted to study the bill further and consult with his state's governor.

"And it doesn't have to be 100 percent repeal", said Mr. Paul. Because they also painted over the part that sets certain minimum standards for insurance policies. That includes those who provide health care every single day - doctors, nurses, hospitals - and most importantly, the people who rely on our health care system. They oppose the bill, but only on paper. Maria Sanchez gets treatment for drug addiction through Medicaid.

"We have to protect our citizens and this is going to be very hard for us", he said. We're going to end up right back on the street.

"She has been living in a group home for 21 years, all their funding comes from Medicaid", Stuart said.

"We are encouraged that the draft Senate legislation funds cost-sharing reductions, which help those who need it most", BCBSA said in a statement.
