Senate's 'Secret' Health Care Bill Cuts Medicaid, Eliminates Taxes for Wealthy

23 Juin 2017

Democrats are united in opposition.

The bill which is quite similar to the version of the House passed last month which the President called "mean". Under the Affordable Care Act, that number was 9.69 percent.

Trump welcomed the Bill but indicated that changes may be in store. Look forward to making it really special!

But Trump has made a slight about-face about health care reform since cheering the House bill during a Rose Garden ceremony. "I've been talking about a plan with heart". "The top one tenth of the one percent would receive thousands upon thousands of annual tax cuts while some individuals with disabilities lose coverage".

Another vocal critic was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who declared, "this is a bill that would end Medicaid as we know it". "The additional cuts proposed in the Senate bill released today -including a reduction in provider assessments that alone will result in billions of dollars less to skilled nursing care each year - are deeply distressing", Parkinson said. "Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family - this bill will do you harm", he wrote.

Corker said that it would be "irresponsible" for lawmakers to take a position, saying that "this draft we're looking at is not necessarily the draft that's going to be entered into the record" and could could be subject to "significant amendments". Remember, ObamaCare is dead."In an interview later with Fox News Channel, Trump was asked about the four conservatives opposing the bill". The way the size of those credits is determined would also change, and according to Bagley, it would change in such a way that people would get less health care for their buck. "I want to hear from my bosses, the people of Montana, about what they like and don't like about this legislation", Tester said.

The draft bill unveiled by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell met a mixed reaction on Capitol Hill from his own party and severe criticism from Democrats.

Republicans view the law as a costly government intrusion into the private marketplace.

The next big showdown will come early next week when the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office releases its analysis of the bill.

Senate Republicans are one step closer to overhauling America's healthcare system - and it's not good news for women.

Obama, who has weighed in sparingly on public policy since leaving office, posted a scathing critique of the Senate bill Thursday on Facebook, urging voters from both parties to lobby senators to slow down and renegotiate the measure.

As proposed Thursday, the new Senate bill maintains numerous provisions of the House bill passed last month-removing numerous taxes that allow the Affordable Care Act to pay for itself, limiting the expansion of Medicaid while extending the timeline for halting expansion, and declining to mandate individual and employer coverage-while tempering some of the original bill's more controversial measures.

The new formula would be stingier in terms of how much federal money is sent to the states for Medicaid, and would require states to either pony up extra funds or cut services.

She said she's also anxious about what happens to lower income people within 250 percent of the poverty line who qualify for subsidies under Obamacare but could find themselves facing costs that would basically leave them uninsured.

The Republican Senate plan to replace Obamacare would dramatically change the country's largest public health insurance program, Medicaid. "Most are the working poor, they work in hourly jobs that don't provide access to health care, so we're always concerned about that".

It would also bar the use of the bill's health care tax credits to buy coverage that includes abortions, a major demand for conservatives.

"Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor", read the message of disapproval.

Cruz, who has a history of creating trouble for GOP leaders, has positioned himself in recent weeks as something of a consensus-builder within the Senate GOP conference on health care.

Unfortunately, there is little agreement among Republicans, as ihave said, as to what they want the bill to do.

More significantly, ends Medicaid's longtime status as an open-ended entitlement, with Washington paying a share of what each state spends.
