Mayor Landrieu Issues Statement on Senate GOP Health Care Bill

24 Juin 2017

Criticism after criticism that Republicans have lobbed at Democrats over the years about how the Affordable Care Act was passed apply to a far greater extent to the health-care bill the GOP leadership has been drafting covertly. It would let insurers provide fewer benefits, offer less generous subsidies than Obama to help people buy policies and end the statute's tax penalties on people who don't buy policies and on larger firms that don't offer coverage to workers. The estimate was released Friday by Arizona's Medicaid agency, which analyzed the effects of the legislation on the state health insurance program for low-income people. Three of them said they anxious it does not go far enough in repealing the ACA, known as Obamacare.

As debate continues over the Senate health care bill, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) stood strong Friday in his decision not to vote for the bill as written. He supports the expansion of health savings accounts and giving Americans more freedom in choosing plans that are right for them.

Some lawmakers in Washington are wondering if one week will be enough time to consider a draft of the Senate Republicans health care bill released Thursday.

KODJAK: But Caroline Pearson of the consulting firm Avalere Health says the bill bases its tax credits on lower-quality insurance.

If the bill passes, Schumer told Newsday, Long Island could see an estimated $1 billion in Medicaid cuts over the next four years, out of about a $7 billion hit statewide.

"The protections around preexisting conditions are still in place in the Senate bill, but the waiver authority gives states options that could include limiting coverage for people with preexisting conditions", says Pearson.

The Democrats oppose it and several Republican senators have objected, making its passage uncertain.

An analysis of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office, highlighting its expected costs and effectiveness, is expected early next week.
