United States health-insurance bill faces stiff opposition

The VA is the second-largest department in the USA government, with more than 350,000 employees, and it is charged with providing health care and other services to military veterans.

The Connecticut Democrat conceded that both sides had used the "nuclear option" to change precedents to eliminate the need for supermajorities on nominations, but legislation should be a different matter. Assuming no Democratic senator votes in favor of the bill, the Kentucky senator can afford to lose only two Republican senators and still pass the bill. "There are a lot of bills that we move, you know, the committee that I chair, there's a lot of activity over there that's very bipartisan, and I hope that we see a lot more of that". It's the major issue with Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, etc.

"For my part, I'm very concerned about the cost of insurance for older people with serious chronic illnesses and the impact of the Medicaid cuts on our state governments, the most vulnerable people in our society, and health care providers such as our rural hospitals and nursing homes, most of whom are very dependent on the Medicaid program". Instead, Republicans propose a per-beneficiary cap. About 11 million are covered by the expansion. Better Care would also limit government spending on the rest of the Medicaid program, giving states a set amount to spend per person rather than the insurance program's now open-ended funding commitment. "This is a step backwards for cost, coverage and care". The idea was a relatively late addition to Trump's talking points.

Dr. Mott Blair of Wallace, N.C., recalls a patient who got a colonoscopy that found a polyp, which undetected could have led to colon cancer.

And that's where I think, given the extent of what the damage would be 10 years out, is what would happen - is we would have to reduce the amount of money we offer providers.

ROVNER: It's somewhat similar to the House bill, although the cuts would go even deeper.

Private Insurance Changes Republicans would make no significant changes to employer-provided coverage, which remains the mainstay of private insurance. And that's very important to the 12 million people in the exchanges. If the risk pool is healthier, premiums would rise more slowly. The situation varies from state to state, with healthy markets in some and others struggling to hang on to insurers. That's because his premiums would be higher and his subsidy would be smaller, the analysis said.

That the Koch network quickly panned the Senate bill is no surprise.

Over the long run, premiums for younger people are expected to come down.

But it's not only older enrollees who would see big hikes.

The Louisiana Budget Project, which advocates for low- and moderate-income families, panned the Senate health proposal as devastating for the state's families, health providers and budget.
