Burgum signals support for Republican health care effort

Burgum signals support for Republican health care effort”

Murphy said this effort is vexing because it comes just as the parties were beginning to come together around health care, with a bill aimed at stabilizing the Affordable Care Act, being written by Republican Lamar Alexander and Democrat Patty Murray.

The Graham-Cassidy proposal would eliminate the expansion and the premiums subsidies in 2020 and instead give states a smaller amount of money they can use for lowering premiums, or any health-related goal they choose.

At the same time, it would institute per capita caps on all federal government funding for the entire Medicaid program, resulting in dramatic funding cuts.

Critics say that, like other GOP proposals, the plan would mean millions fewer Americans would be insured.

Jones, who appeared before the committee for an update on a Medicaid-financed program to serve people with serious mental illness and substance use disorders, confirmed that the cost to Virginia of the new Senate proposal "is still over a billion dollars".

The Affordable Care Act was not flawless, but it was a big step in the right direction.

With Republicans holding only a two-vote majority in the Senate, they can afford no more than two defections.

"Sen. Ernst is still going through and evaluating how this would impact Iowa", Leigh Claffey, a spokperson said Monday in an email. If this bill becomes law, it would completely destroy Medicaid, which covers 74 million Americans including 45 percent of children under the age of 6 and seniors who require long-term nursing home care.

"We need alternatives to Obamacare, which hasn't worked", Grassley said.

Republicans have promised their constituents for years that they would repeal Obamacare, but their most recent effort ended in failure when three Republicans voted against the legislation.

"Especially given how disruptive and harmful the Graham/Cassidy proposal will be for patients, we oppose any effort to try to rush it through the legislative process so a vote can occur before the current reconciliation measure expires on October 1", the letter stated. Why not a single-payer system?

Open enrollment for Affordable Care Act insurance dates to enroll in federally run from November 1 to December 15.

The Congressional Budget Office - whose damning evaluations of previous GOP plans have been instrumental in rallying opposition and swaying those in Congress with a conscience - will have only time for a "bare bones" evaluation of the current plan prior to the September 30 deadline.

The Avalere report followed similar findings by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal research organization. IL would lose $1.4 billion in 2026, it said.

She noted that the bill would also repeal the Affordable Care Act's requirements for people to have health coverage and for large employers to provide it, requirements that she said "have harmed families and business owners".

Why is the GOP on the verge of passing such a horrific bill? According to one estimate, the state stands to lose about $4 billion in federal funding in 2027, when the bill's temporary block grant system would expire. Throughout the debates this year we have consistently recommended that any proposals to replace portions of current law should ensure that individuals now covered do not become uninsured. It also would have reduced funding for subsidies that lower premiums for another 10 million people. Meanwhile, just one company, Medica, has said it would be willing to sell policies in Iowa's marketplace next year and only with markedly higher premiums from this year.
