Not 'That Far Off' From Passing Health Overhaul

Parmenio Sano | 26 Giugno, 2017, 03:47

Heller said it is a "lie" that the Senate Republican health care bill would lower premiums.

Dean Heller said at a news conference this afternoon that if the current draft of the Republican health care bill were brought to the Senate floor, he would vote "no".

Portman has said he would support a gradual rollback of Medicaid expansion.

Medicaid funding is at the heart of the protester's complaints.

The Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, which was released by Republicans in the U.S. Senate on Thursday, would significantly cut federal funding for the low-income Medicaid program. "Well, I've done in five months what other people haven't done in years", he said. Johnson said in an interview with WLUK-TV, "I'm saying I haven't gotten the information yet to convince myself that I'm a 'yes'".


Before the election, Obamacare was working well enough to keep down the overall cost of health care. "We have not addressed that adequately", Sen. We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare.I don't think they're that far off. It disregards women's reproductive health and other special health care needs. 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. "But I think they're going to get there". "A tax cut the Republicans insist on of about $700 billion for the wealthiest people in America and pharmaceutical companies".

"Every indication suggests that the plan unveiled by Senate Republicans yesterday will be even more devastating to New Jersey than the mean-spirited unpopular bill passed by the House of Representatives earlier this year".

Medicaid - the program created to help poor Americans get healthcare - will stop being expanded by 2021, meaning millions of them will not be able to access treatment. "And policies contained in the discussion draft will repeal the individual mandates so Americans are no longer forced to buy insurance they don't need or can't afford", McConnell said. However, the four senators do appear open to negotiations and amendments that could turn their "no" to a "yes". Johnson said, "It's freaky what we've done to our healthcare markets".

"It shifts the cost from healthy people to sick people, it shifts the cost from younger people to older people, there's a lot of cost-shifting going on but not cost-reduction, and that's the problem", he said.
