Senate's version of health care plan is bad

Senate's version of health care plan is bad”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said he hopes to bring the GOP bill to a vote before Congress breaks for its Fourth of July recess.

Nevada Senator Dean Heller announced he will not vote for the American Health Care Act as it is now written, making him the fifth GOP senator to say they won't vote for the bill since it was released Thursday morning. "However, it is also critical that strong incentives for people to keep continuous coverage be included to ensure a balanced market", the lobby group said. In May, 67 percent of Republicans found the measure favorable compared with 56 percent who say the same today. Veteran Senator John McCain said the draft bill was better than Obamacare in "100 ways", but like many Senators wanted to study the bill further and consult with his state's governor.

The Senate bill would make the payments through 2019, but then cut them off.

"Well, they are also four good guys and they are four friends of mine", said Trump.

Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Ron Johnson probably hold the fate of the Senate Obamacare repeal-replace bill and staked out their own position on what needs to happen for them to get behind the effort. And like the House bill, it would restructure Medicaid, imposing per capita spending caps. Three of them said they anxious it does not go far enough in repealing the ACA, known as Obamacare. The bill would kill a variety of taxes right away, but the subsidy and Medicaid cuts would not phase in until after the 2018 midterm election.

Senate bill: Tax credits primarily based on income, age and geography, but would cover a simpler plan.

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

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office expects to release its analysis of the Senate plan early next week. Most people who use Medicaid are pretty thrilled with it because, in a shocking turn of events, people really enjoy having affordable effective health insurance. "After the 2020 drawback of Medicaid expansion, what this bill does in the out years, is it establishes a Medicare reimbursement rate for the states that's pegged to inflation". Under the Senate bill, these enrollees would no longer be covered after 2023. Obamacare, in the meantime, provided tax subsidies to help people with a certain level of income; the Senate Bill being largely in line with it. Obamacare also aided young people to get insured by allowing them to stay on their parent's insurance until they turn 26.
