Senate's version of health care plan is very bad

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 Medicaid Changes a Flashpoint in Sen. Pat Toomey's Home State of Pennsylvania

From 2015 to 2017, he ran the Affordable Care Act, sometimes called Obamacare, as head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The Republican Senators now expressing their displeasure with the plan could easily thwart it.

Paul, along with three other GOP senators, said the secretly crafted Senate health care plan is dead on arrival unless they see some major changes.

"The chaos the Republican Party is wrecking across our health care system won't just be felt in our insurance markets but in doctor's offices, ER's and clinics across the state of in", says Myers.

Another was Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, also a Republican.

Obamacare has been credited with expanding health coverage to many more Americans.

Cruz, in a separate statement, said, "As now drafted, this bill draft does not do almost enough to lower premiums". In fact, people who are over 50, many of them would be asked to pay as much as 50 percent of their income [for health insurance], and that's all in order to make the policies cheaper for younger people.

In the eyes of most expert analysts, the House and Senate's bills don't even meet those minimal tests.


Millions, who liked their plans and their doctors, couldn't keep them. Witnesses from rural organizations testified about the potential impact of Medicaid cuts for the disabled and the impact of removing mental health coverage requirements. She also stated that the counsel tried several times to communicate with both Trump and HHS Secretary Tom Price, but received little more than a "lackluster" response.

Under the Senate bill, these enrollees would no longer be covered after 2023.

President Donald Trump will help lead talks to get the reluctant Republicans on board. At that point, the rates at which the federal government assists states changes and becomes tethered to the consumer price index. Medicaid overhaul has been a point of motivation for health care reform. Iowa opted to expand, and has added more than 150,000 people to its rolls since 2014. "That's what I want, make sure that we're taken care of here in the state of Nevada", said Heller.

Supporters of the Republican plan say the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate forced people to do something they often didn't want to do.

Under special rules McConnell is using that will block Democrats from using a filibuster to kill the bill, the legislation can not include provisions that make policy changes that don't primarily affect the budget.

Charlie Baker, the Republican governor in heavily Democratic Massachusetts, and Tom Wolf, a Democratic governor in Pennsylvania, had similar concerns. "What would happen to them if they don't have that access go into a nursing home because that is their only way of getting care?" In 2016, the expansion accounted for 43 percent of Ohio's Medicaid spending on behavioral health, a category that includes substance abuse treatment, according to the Associated Press. "Well, who is even going to pay for that?" Whatever instability Obamacare now has, this will make it far, far worse.

Health care reform is a personal policy area for nearly all Americans, and the president's blind support for "repealing Obamacare" is putting millions of lives at stake - all for a bill that, ironically, conservative members of Congress say doesn't even really repeal Obamacare, which Trump has been using as his consistent reason for support.
