Latest on the AHCA is mostly talk

Irune Rengel | 05 Junio, 2017, 17:44

Last week, a Republican House candidate in Montana put his candidacy in serious jeopardy on the eve of Election Day when a reporter from The Guardian pressed him about an unfavorable Congressional Budget Office analysis of the GOP health care bill.

35 percent of the 1,205 people surveyed between May 16 and 22 felt that the bill fulfilled none of Trump's healthcare promises, while 40 percent said it fulfilled some promises.

Half of Americans want the Senate to make changes to the American Health Care Act (AHCA), according to a Wednesday poll by Kaiser Family Foundation.

The findings track those of other polls conducted since the Republican House passed the bill.

Fiscal chavista interpuso acción legal contra Constituyente convocada por Maduro
La convocó el 1 de mayo y poco después el Consejo Nacional Electoral ( CNE ) anunció una elección para fines de julio para elegir a 545 miembros de esa Constituyente .

Congress may need to put plans to fully overhaul the U.S. health care system on the back burner, and instead prioritize a short-term measure to stabilize individual health coverage markets in certain states, U.S. Sen. "It's also not a good plan", the senator said.

Parts of the GOP bill at least as many people are "more likely" to support as "less likely" included allowing states to require adults without disabilities to be working or searching for work to qualify for Medicaid coverage and providing federal funding for states to cover people with preexisting conditions through separate high-risk pools.

Roughly 31 percent of respondents said they either had a very favorable or somewhat favorable view of the American Health Care Act, and about 55 percent said they had a very unfavorable or somewhat unfavorable view.

The administration report found that premiums more than doubled since "Obamacare" took effect, but independent experts say it's not an apples-to-apples comparison, because prior to the Obama law, insurers were able to turn away people in poor health and offer plans that limited or left out benefits like maternity care and prescription drugs. At the same time, the public is increasingly pessimistic about these issues as well as potential cost.

Mayoría en Venezuela considera Constituyente como via para diálogo
Asimismo, instó al pueblo a prepararse para elegir el 30 de julio a los miembros de la Constituyente para que las "elecciones sean en paz, para que el pueblo decida, para que se reconstruya la paz".

AHCA conceals a tax cut for the wealthy. Almost half (45 percent) believe costs will get worse if the AHCA is passed as a law, while only 16 percent believe they will get better. "ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!" It is clearly written in the bill that if you have pre-existing conditions you will be charged the same amount as a healthy person for the same age.

"This is the kind of information that they've been dreading", Joe Antos, a resident scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, says of GOP leaders.

Senate Republicans are in the process of overhauling the House bill, but they are also struggling to bridge the many divides within the party.

And 58% of those surveyed said they were less likely to support the bill due to the Congressional Budget Office's estimate that costs would increase for older people and decrease for younger Americans. AHCA eliminates the additional 3.8 percent of taxes on incomes of over $250,000 which the Affordable Care Act used to pay for Medicaid.

Bahrain suspends independent newspaper for 'sowing division'
The decision comes amid a yearlong crackdown in which activists have been arrested or forced into exile while political parties have been disbanded.

So that leaves millions of Americans - more than 500,000 in North Carolina - in a vulnerable position.
