Hoeven, Heitkamp talk health care in Bismarck appearances

08 Juillet 2017

Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller released a statement criticizing Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey's recent comment supporting a repeal of the Affordable Care Act without a replacement in place.

Facing defections from within their own party, Republican leaders in the US Senate decided on Tuesday (June 27, 2017) to delay a vote on their health care bill until after the July 4 recess.

Senate legislation to overhaul Obamacare that was unveiled last month - together with the Cruz amendment - was submitted to the Congressional Budget Office late last week for an updated score, according to a GOP aide. Twenty-two million Americans would lose their insurance under the Senate bill.

The study estimated there would be 1.45 million fewer jobs nationwide in 2026 because of changes under the law.

Trump, McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and other Republicans have all said Obama's law is failing, citing markets around the country where insurers have pulled out or sharply boosted premiums. And even if you get your health insurance through your employer, you could be paying more for less care.

Alabama now has 480,000 children on Medicaid, representing more than 40 percent of the state's kids, Ernest says.

Another Minneapolis resident, Tina Webb, said the Medical Assistance program also helped her. The second-term senator and former North Dakota governor said he's been meeting with health care groups and individuals along with participating in media interviews, and Kapener said he planned to do another radio town hall.

"We undo the price controls, we undo the mandates, so young and healthy people can get back in the insurance pool with lower premiums", said Lewis, in his first term representing Minnesota's south-suburban 2nd District. "And without the benefits and services of Medicaid he would have to be in an institutional setting at over $300,000 a year".

The Senate version cuts even more from Medicaid, but over a longer period in order to fund a massive tax cut for the wealthy and funnel more money to insurance companies and the drug industry.

Overall, 44% said that the United States healthcare system would be worse off under the GOP legislation, while 28% said it would improve.

Waylon Hedegaard, president of the North Dakota AFL-CIO, told Hoeven the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, isn't flawless but Congress is moving too quickly.

At a Minneapolis news conference Wednesday, Gov. Mark Dayton and U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, both Democrats, railed against the proposed health care bill in the U.S. Senate. But if that is not likely, she called on them to seek input from state doctors on what kind of changes the system needs.
