What's in the Senate's new healthcare bill?

24 Juin 2017

The Affordable Care Act for the first time is now viewed favorably by more than half of all Americans, according to a new poll released a day after the introduction of a Republican-drafted Senate bill which would gut that major health-care law better known as Obamacare. Hogan, a popular governor up for re-election next year, does not have direct influence over what is playing out in Washington and has largely avoided weighing in on national politics.

"If you want to use the president's formulation 'mean, ' then this bill is a little bit meaner than the House bill", said Hanel.

Former Indiana State Health commissioner Woody Myers says the bill worsens an already-weakened health care situation after large insurers this week left Indiana's Obamacare marketplace - something Myers blames federal Republicans for.

"As I have consistently stated, if the bill is good for Nevada, I'll vote for it and if it's not - I won't", Heller said.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the bill, drafted in secret by a handful of lawmakers and aides, at a closed-door session with party faithful.

Dr. Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, said: "Millions of Americans would lose health insurance coverage under this plan".

"It's a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America", Obama said on Thursday in a 1,000-word post on Facebook.

— The Senate bill differs from the House health care measure, so the legislation would have to be reconciled in a House-Senate conference committee.

But Sanders stopped short of saying that the bill enjoys Trump's full backing, hinting more tweaking down the road.

Democratic Rep. Peter Welch, who voted against a House-passed bill that would similarly roll back numerous Affordable Care Act components, said the Senate bill is even worse. Right now, Republicans don't have the 50 votes needed to pass their bill.

McCoy has concerns about the insurance division's plan because it will mean older people in the marketplace will pay more.

"The cost of coverage for seniors and low- income Americans would increase", he said.

It takes hundreds of billions of dollars now allocated to care for the working poor, women, children and elderly, and gives it to rich Americans in the form of a huge tax break. Four conservative senators-Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin-announced they would oppose it without changes, which is more than enough to bring it down.

Those still able to get insurance will pay much more in many cases. It defunds Planned Parenthood-which provides family planning and birth control for millions of low income women for one year. Trump has since called it "mean", despite celebrating it at the Rose Garden with House Republicans.

States could not get exemptions to Obama's prohibition against charging higher premiums for some people with pre-existing medical conditions, but the subsidies would be lower, making coverage less affordable, Pearson said. And the main liberal criticism of the bill - that it would leave too many people uninsured - is misguided: We suspect that the Congressional Budget Office will find that most of the reduction in insurance rolls results from people's choosing not to buy insurance when they're not being threatened with fines.
