Concerns Over Senate Health Care Would Impact Medicaid In Arizona

Share

Heller, like four other GOP senators who announced their opposition to the Obamacare repeal bill that was unveiled Thursday, left the door open to negotiations. One example of those tax benefits - Warren Buffett last month in an interview on CNBC said that if this bill goes into law, he'll get a tax break to the tune of $680,000.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has finally unwrapped his plan for dismantling President Barack Obama's health care law.

The Senate legislation would phase out extra federal money Nevada and 30 other states receive for expanding Medicaid to additional low earners.

Trump welcomed the bill but indicated that changes may be in store.

Collins said, "I can't support a bill that is going to greatly increase premiums for our older Americans or out of pocket costs for those who aren't quite old enough for Medicare yet". Look forward to making it really special! That could happen as soon as next week, meaning differences with a House-passed version would have to be worked out before a final bill could hit Trump's desk. "The way this bill cuts health care is heartless". It concluded that ultimately 23 million Americans would lose insurance by 2026 if the House plan becomes law.

Republicans hold 52 out of 100 seats in the Senate and the latest bill is created to thread the needle to find an agreement between the party's conservative and more moderate wings. The Senate bill would repeal the tax in 2023.

Obama weighed in on Facebook. "So, we have 142 pages to go through", she said.

SEN. JOHN CORNYN, R-Texas: They can read the bill.

Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) said they would not vote on the Senate Republican plan in its current form.

Hospital groups came out against the bill on Thursday.

Democrats said the GOP measure would take coverage away from people and raise their out-of-pocket costs, all in the name of paring taxes on the wealthy.

The measure largely uses people's incomes as the yardstick for helping those without workplace coverage to buy private insurance. Fewer than one in 3 Americans supports it, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling.

Like the House bill, the Senate measure would block federal payments to Planned Parenthood. Unlike the House plan, it does not allow states to apply for a waiver to opt out of those rules.

Senate Republicans' new health bill cuts taxes by almost $1 trillion over the next decade, mostly for corporations and the richest families in America. The Senate bill has not yet been scored but will likely be in the same ballpark.

The House and Senate bills contain two identical anti-abortion provisions.

"For the next couple years, the ACA regime will continue, but then it will transfer to a different set of tax credits", Senator Bill Cassidy said.

"Republicans believe we have a responsibility to act, and we are", he said. She said they were later reunited with their wheelchairs. No Democrat is expected to vote for the bill.

ABC News also reported that as the GOP bill was being released Thursday morning there was a "large protest gathered outside McConnell's office, with people in wheelchairs staging a 'die-in, ' and protesters chanting that no changes be made to Medicaid". Almost the exact same number of Democrats said they don't.

Some conservative and moderate GOP senators have their doubts about the bill. But several said they would check with home-state constituents before taking a position.
