Local Senators React To Senate GOP Health Care Bill

Local Senators React To Senate GOP Health Care Bill”

Moderates are concerned that the bill places caps on federal Medicaid funding, impacting millions of low-income Americans who rely on the Medicaid programs administered by their states. Senate Republicans would cut Medicaid, end penalties for people not buying insurance and erase a raft of tax increases as part of their long-awaited plan to scuttle Barack Obama's health care law.

The draft bill was unveiled on Thursday by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as the upper chamber's response to the American Health Care Act, the Obamacare repeal legislation passed by the House in May.

"I have to start off by, I guess first congratulating all of the millionaires on the incredible gift that they're about to get", Danielson said. The GOP holds a 52-48 advantage over Democrats in the Senate, with Vice President Pence standing ready to break ties in the GOP's favor. His office said Friday the senator had no further comment for now.

"We have a very good plan", he said.

Realizing they're outnumbered, Democrats and their liberal allies were planning events around the US over the next few days aimed at building public opposition to the bill.

As we know, the bill was written behind closed doors by Senate Republicans and many Americans, including Sen. "I will study the bill to determine whether it fulfills President Trump's campaign promises to lower premiums, maintain coverage and protect those with preexisting conditions without mandates", he said. He recalled the tangled legislative process under Obamacare, pointing to the "Cornhusker kickback" as proof that it took a lot of work for Democrats to get enough votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. Rand Paul, one of the GOP holdouts on the Senate health care bill, said Sunday he would be willing to support a partial rollback of Obamacare, saying he might even vote for an 80 percent repeal.

President Donald Trump says he doesn't think congressional Republicans are "that far off" on passing a health overhaul to replace what he's calling "the dead carcass of Obamacare".

The CBO announced Thursday it would release its analysis, commonly called a "score", early this week and Axios and other news outlets reported Monday is expected to be the day.

And in a separate statement, Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown says the GOP Senate bill would hamper the state's progress in slowing the opioid epidemic, calling Medicaid the "number one tool" in the fight against opioids.

"Senator Durbin doesn't want to talk about the fact that in IL they are way down on the number of people even selling insurance and prices are way up", he also said. "And unless it gets fixed, I would - look, I'm against it".
