New blow to GOP health bill: Nevada GOP Sen. Heller opposes

Gov. Jay Inslee also attacked the Senate Republican proposal, writing in an online post that Medicaid-funded ACA services help more than 32,000 people with developmental disabilities and 65,000 low-income seniors and vulnerable adults.

"I hope that our Senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what's really at stake and consider that the rationale for action, on healthcare or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did", he wrote. Time is of the essence! The House bill and the Senate offering isn't just a step backward, it blows up the road.

Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has a challenge on unifying his party to successfully repeal the Affordable Care Act.

States could not get exemptions to Obama's prohibition against charging higher premiums for some people with pre-existing medical conditions, but the subsidies would be lower, making coverage less affordable, Pearson said. Instead, insurers would be allowed to charge a 30 percent penalty above original premiums if an insured person's coverage is interrupted for 63 days.

GOP leaders made clear "this isn't a take-it-or-leave-it proposition", said Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

And yet, there was the Republican president yesterday, throwing his support behind a Senate GOP bill that won't cover everybody, would increase consumer costs, and cuts Medicaid by hundreds of billions of dollars.

The four are sticking together to get changes, such as fewer government subsidies created to make health insurance more affordable.

"If we get to impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes, I'll consider partial repeal", he said. The measure resembles legislation the House approved last month that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said would mean 23 million additional uninsured people within a decade and that recent polling shows is viewed favorably by only around 1 in 4 Americans.

Sandoval said if the bill were to become law, Nevada's costs for its newly eligible Medicaid patients would balloon from $120 million per year.

Senate Republican leadership released their highly anticipated health care bill this week, but as of now, there's a lot of uncertainty over whether it will pass the Senate. If the four senators - Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ron Johnson, R-Wis., Mike Lee, R- Utah, and Rand Paul, R-Ky. - join Democratic senators in opposing the bill, it will be defeated. But the end may be in sight: Sen McConnell has said he could call for a vote on the bill next week. As of now, there are at least five senators who have said they can't vote for the bill in its current form. In the House version of the bill, health care subsidies were tied to age, so the older a person is, the more assistance he or she would receive in paying for health insurance.

For years, Republicans have been looking for ways to undermine America's three core social insurance programs - Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.
