Obama: 'Fundamental Meanness At The Core' Of GOP Health Care Bills

Galeno Paniagua | 23 Junio, 2017, 20:37

Senator Paul is one of the reasons the GOP does not have the votes to push this through right now.

Now that the Senate Republican health care bill is public, it is clearer than ever why Majority Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans hid it for weeks. "It didn't", McConnell said.

"Obamacare is a direct attack on the middle class, and American families deserve better than its failing status quo - they deserve better care", he said.

In his statement, Obama said the Senate bill is "not a health care bill".

Obama has largely kept out of the political fray since his departure from the White House - weighing in on just a handful of Donald Trump's actions through written statements, such as his successor's travel ban on refugees and several Muslim-majority countries, and the decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris climate accord. She says she'd like to see a more open debate. Dean Heller and Susan Collins have also withheld support.

One number puts the Democrat loss in Georgia in stunning perspective
Handel backers, though, hailed Tuesday's results as confirmation that the district remains solidly in the party's grasp. While an honorable and ethical thing to do, in the long run, it has devastated the Democratic Party and Progressives .

"We have a responsibility to move forward, and we are", said McConnell, R-Ky. It represents a total failure of Republican policy imagination.Even more than the House plan, the Senate plan retains the essential structure of Obamacare's individual market reforms.

Obama went on to say the bill was "mean", quoting President Trump's thoughts on the House version of the bill. That is because the Senate bill would cap federal spending on Medicaid on a per-person basis. Those additional funds would continue through 2020, then gradually fall and disappear entirely in 2024. The program now gives states all the money needed to cover eligible recipients and procedures. The Senate nixed that idea, but its bill will let states waive essentially all other Obamacare rules, including basic things insurance plans must cover - like hospitalization, maternity care and prescription drugs - as well as caps on out-of-pocket costs.

The Senate bill recommends slowly undoing the Medi-Cal expansion starting in three years, which could ultimately leave 3.9 million Californians without insurance.

Will allow health plans to charge older people higher premiums. Over time, this would means states will get a lot less money than they do under current law.

He said he wants a bill that protects pre-existing conditions, yet provides flexibility so that if someone wants to purchase only catastrophic health insurance, that will be available as an acceptable option.

The bill contains some measures that might appeal to the GOP at face value, including major tax reductions.

Release of the 142-page proposal ended the long wait for one of the most closely guarded bills in years.

The bill would provide tax credits to help people buy insurance.

In reviewing the bill, Sullivan, a Republican, said he will look at whether Alaska-specific issues are addressed.

The Congressional Budget Office projected the House health-care plan would cost SC $2 billion over the next 10 years, Berkowitz said, estimating the Senate plan could cost even more. The budget office analysis of the Senate measure is expected early next week.
