NM senators decry health care proposal

Though the bill keeps the hotly debated taxpayer subsidies in place for those who purchase an insurance plan through the Obamacare marketplace, it changes the criteria that determines whether an enrollee is eligible for a subsidy.

However, according to NBC News, some key components of Obamacare will remain unchanged, such as protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions, and adults (up to age 26) will be able to maintain their parents' insurance coverage.

President Trump urged the House of Representatives to pass a similar bill in May, only to criticise it in private as "mean" once it passed.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Obama said there is a "fundamental meanness at the core" of both the Senate's and House's health care legislation.

Majority Leader: It's time to act, because Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo. McConnell has only a thin margin of error: The bill would fail if just three of the Senate's 52 GOP senators oppose it.

In the same way, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer declared on the Senate floor "the way this law cuts social security is heartless".

Shares of hospital companies and health insurers rose on the bill's release, with the overall S&P 500 healthcare sector closing up 1.1 percent at an all-time high.

Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), Sen.

Next week, the Congressional Budget Office will formally score the Senate bill.

"When we look at the bill, we actually find that with the ObamaCare subsidies, not only are we keeping them, we may actually be providing more subsidies than ObamaCare has", Sen.

The Senate bill would take all federal funding from Planned Parenthood for a year, which provides 2.4 million men, women, and children annually with birth control, sexually-transmitted disease treatment, and preventative checkups. And because this administration and those who believe in it don't care about poor people (that includes poor white people who voted for this oligarch!), low-income people would pay higher prices for less coverage.

Collins also said she would have to hold off final judgment until after the amendment process, but she laid out her criteria. Members from the right and left ends of the Republican Party's spectrum have criticized the measure, with some denouncing its steep cuts to Medicaid and drug addiction efforts and others saying it's too similar to the ACA. "Not only will the bill ration health care for millions of Americans, it is a massive giveaway to the wealthy at the expense of our kids".

The bill lets states waive required coverage of essential health benefits.
