Senate GOP health bill would cut Medicaid, erase tax increases, reports say

"It's been demeaning for the people who hired him to do his job", said Lizzie Anderson, one of the demonstrators who say they are sending a message to Toomey, camping outside his office on Grant Street in downtown Pittsburgh overnight.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has pledged to hold a vote on the Senate bill before the chamber adjourns for the July 4 recess. "Because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo". And at least a half-dozen Republicans - both conservatives and moderates - have complained about it.

Mr McConnell has only a thin margin of error: The bill would fail if just three of the Senate's 52 GOP senators oppose it.

In the same way, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer declared on the Senate floor "the way this law cuts social security is heartless". They are Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Without the votes of Democrats and the four Republicans who are withholding support, the measure will not pass the Senate.

When a reporter asked if the president would support the defunding of Planned Parenthood, Sanders responded, "I'm not sure". Though he celebrated the passing in a Rose Garden event, Trump reportedly called the House bill "mean".

So why did the congressman vote for the American Health Care Act, the House Republicans' repeal of Obamacare? Those additional funds would continue through 2020, then gradually fall and disappear entirely in 2024.

Ending Obama's expansion has been a major problem for some GOP senators. States would eventually receive a fixed amount - unlike the current open-ended funding requirement - in the form of a block grant or a figure based on the number of enrollees. The program now gives states all the money needed to cover eligible recipients and procedures. It does a number of things, like extending the ACA subsidies to help people afford the cost of insurance.

He said on Wednesday he wanted a health plan "with heart". "And the tax credits in the bill will also be better designed".

It also would make it harder for states to provide insurance companies the ability to charge sick people and those with pre-existing conditions more for coverage.

The Republican Senate plan to replace Obamacare would dramatically change the country's largest public health insurance program, Medicaid. The Republican-led effort was largely seen as negatively impacting some of the most vulnerable Americans.

"To put the American people through that pain - while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return - that's tough to fathom", Obama said.

Several other Republican senators could end up opposing the bill for completely different reasons. It would also let insurers mark up premiums by 30 percent for those who have a lapse in insurance coverage of about two months or more. The bill has not yet been scored by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office on its possible effects.
