We need single-payer health care

Irune Rengel | 19 May, 2017, 14:33

Reminder: Obamacare is the same as the Affordable Care Act.

"I am encouraged by what we are seeing in the Senate".

"Sabotage is the operative word", said Sen. An earlier version of the Republican bill would have exempted members of Congress, drawing an outcry, but the House voted 429-0 to include themselves. "We're seeing senators working together in good faith". Other Republican senators reportedly agreed. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.

Celtics win draft lottery
Boston acquired the Nets' 2014, 2016 and 2018 first-round picks, as well as the rights to swap in 2017. This is an even bigger topic of discussion at the moment because the NBA Draft lottery was last night.

The AHCA plan was a poor attempt to change parts of the ACA and obviously was created to allow the Republicans to say they did something to repeal and replace Obamacare. Medicaid provides health coverage to 1.2 million - or half of all OH children - and more than 30 million children nationwide.

Cost and quality of care also improved Kentucky and Arkanasa, where patients were 41 percent more likely to have a regular source of care, spent $337 less out of pocket annually, and were almost 23 percent more likely to rate themselves as being in "excellent" health. Instead of tweaking the House-passed bill, AARP, which has announced its opposition to the replacement legislation, is urging the Senate to simply toss the House's work and start over. Now the Senate is reviewing the healthcare initiative, called the American Health Care Act, for approval. The legislation is moving under special budget rules known as reconciliation, which means it is not subject to usual filibuster rules and can not be blocked by the minority party.

States that waive community-based rating for health insurance premiums would be required to set up high-risk pools or make reinsurance arrangements, which the bill backs with $100 billion for such aids, including cost-sharing subsidies for consumers. The bill will go before the U.S. Senate in the coming days, where it is expected to undergo major changes.

Nanaimo MLA says election uncertainty means anything is possible
Johnston said if the results remain a Liberal minority with the Greens holding the balance of power, Weaver has to be careful. However, the Greens' and New Democrats' stance on electoral reform may be a deal breaker with the Liberals, Harrison said.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told reporters last week that Republicans are still in the early planning phase of crafting a bill. "There is a certain awkwardness, though, in pushing the idea of ACA waivers at the same time they're working to repeal and replace the law itself". "Tip of the iceberg", as they say.

When Kinsey, now 57, learned he had cancer, he was able to sign up for a plan with a $629 monthly premium because the agency he was working for offered group coverage that became effective nearly immediately. Grow up, stop being selfish and have some courage to offer us the peace of decent health care. Insurers face less pressure to drive down prices to attract customers, and they have to raise rates because they must cover all the sick patients who apply. "It doesn't bother me, the leaders have the right to choose whoever they wish", said Collins. Pay careful attention. Your health care may need you to pay attention and actually learn the facts. Collins and Bill Cassidy, R-La., were organizers of the meeting.

Public health researchers are still trying to understand the effects of the Affordable Care Act even as the Republican-controlled Congress and White House plot how to dismantle the law, also known as Obamacare.
