House Republicans Face Attacks Over Health Care Vote

Malita Javier | 09 May, 2017, 05:25

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn dismissed criticisms the 12-person team selected by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to re-write the House's Obamacare repeal-and-replacement bill lacks female voices Monday. Coverage would be disrupted for millions nearly immediately, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis of a previous iteration of the legislation. As a result, the instability that already exists in Obamacare's exchanges as insurers scale back around the country would only be increased.

Even if it gets major revisions in the Senate, the House bill is serving as a baseline for a task force in New Jersey organized by Joseph Vitale, chairman of the state Senate's health committee.

Wrangling on the bill now shifts to the Senate, where Republicans, who hold a slim majority there, say they are readying their own health care measure.

Ryan noted that under the Republican plan "you can't charge people more if they keep continuous coverage". "So by giving the states the ability to customize their Medicaid population their program to work for them".

Joan Larsen, who now serves on Michigan's Supreme Court, will be nominated by Trump to serve on the 6th Circuit Court of Ap0peals. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit drew rave reviews for broadcasting a similar hearing last month on the travel ban.

Officials in CT have set up a similar task force, and NY lawmakers say they are prepared to hold a special session later this year to deal with any fallout from the health care changes.

The bill received zero support from House Democrats who say the AHCA jeopardizes lives by cutting funding for Medicaid and limiting protection for citizens with pre-existing conditions. In states with waivers, there would be what are known as high-risk pools to help cover the sickest people.

"The fact of the matter is AHCA does not deny coverage for pre-existing conditions", Rooney said. But under complicated Senate rules, it also limits what can go into the legislation.

In a statement immediately following the vote, Upton said the status quo is unacceptable and that the legislation is a first step in the right direction for ensuring quality, affordable health care.
