McConnell: GOP Healthcare Bill Will Be Simple Majority Vote in Senate
09 May 2017, 07:54 | Cynthia Sparks
The long-running US health care debate now moves to the Senate, where the fate of the repeal effort is uncertain.
Obama made the remark Sunday night in Boston while accepting the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. Even for an opponent of Obamacare, it is hard to understand why House Republicans chose this path to revamping the nation's health care system.
Critics of the GOP bill say it amounts to a huge tax cut for wealthy Americans at the expense of coverage for those with low and modest incomes. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., pointed to the working group of Senate Republicans trying to write their own measure - "13 white men, when you have five Republican women who are excluded", she said. The bill now heads for the Senate, where it is expected to change, and the plan leaves many important coverage decisions up to the states. The Affordable Care Act, which remains in place, does not permit this.
THE FACTS: One of the bigger changes to health care under the Republican plan is that it would allow insurers to consider the health risk of customers applying for new coverage if they had a recent gap in coverage.
The ad will appear on national cable and in Ryan's Wisconsin district.
As a result of the bill which passed the House, more than 20 million Americans will lose their health insurance; millions more will pay an average of nearly $4,000 more each year for less coverage. Enter The Hangover. Taking on the roles of Ed Helms' Stu, Bradley Cooper's Phil, and Mike Tyson's tiger are House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and President Trump, respectively.
The bill would end Obamacare's individual mandate, already too weak as a policy mechanism, and impose a fee on those who go without coverage and want to re-enter the insurance market - creating an incentive for relatively healthy people to remain uncovered. She says a high-risk pool in ME worked only because it had a clear source of funding. They'll find that they'll pay substantially higher premiums compared with prior years, and many of their plans are no longer available.
The bill as passed by the House moves in the opposite direction, but Mr. Trump presented it differently.
No analysis was done by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office before the vote so that lawmakers - and the public - would know its effects on USA health care. Coverage would be disrupted for millions nearly immediately, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis of a previous iteration of the legislation. She says senators will "come up with a whole new fresh approach".
And, yes, despite the spin, it would allow insurers to charge thousands of dollars a year more to individuals with pre-existing conditions like pregnancy, cancer, asthma, diabetes and many others - not denying coverage, but making it unaffordable.
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, in an appearance on "Fox News Sunday", also defended the health care bill, pledging that President Trump "will not let you down" if you have a pre-existing condition.
The American Health Care Act, which was narrowly passed in the House last week, would worsen Obamacare's problems rather than fix them. Sanders said the administration is not putting an "artificial timeline" on passing the bill through the Senate and reiterated that the President wanted to get the bill right.
