Senate Republicans Unveil Secretive Health Care Bill

Irune Rengel | 23 Junio, 2017, 09:10

The bill was the product of lengthy negotiations between Republican senators, following the passage in early May of the American Health Care Act by the House, the Huffington Post reported.

He said he is reviewing the bill and confident that Murkowski and Sullivan will fight to protect Alaskans and the needs of a vast, remote state where high health care costs are a concern. Medicaid is a state program but it relies on funds from the federal government to support those who need the services. The Senate version maintains much of the structure of the House bill, but with modest adjustments.

Speaking on the Senate floor, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer asserted that the Senate's version would end Medicaid "as we know it" by decreasing federal support for the programme even more than the House bill, which cut it by more than $800bn, he said. It would allow states to opt out of essential health benefits and Obamacare's requirement that insurers charge sick and healthy people the same rates.

Several Republican senators have already said they oppose the bill, at least as of now.

These questions asked things like "Putin, do you really think that people believe in this circus with staged questions? ". Putin also noted that Moscow hopes that the USA could play a "constructive role" in helping settle the Ukrainian crisis.

That is a problem for the party leadership - Republicans hold 52 out of 100 Senate seats, so they can afford only two defections. The Senate plan also keeps protections for people with preexisting conditions, while the House bill would let states waive those.

The House legislation will roll back the expansion of Medicaid, the health care program for lower-income and disabled people, and slash Obamacare taxes on higher-income people and medical industry companies to pay for expanded coverage.

"It's going to be very good", President Donald Trump told reporters.

Through the ACA, Obama notes, more than 90 percent of Americans have health insurance.

Democratic voters are clustered in cities such as Milwaukee and Madison, while Republican voters are more evenly spread out. Twelve Republican-dominated states have already lined up to support Wisconsin's Republicans in defending the 2011 maps.

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

In a statement, Murkowski said changes to health care are needed but those changes must be "done right".

-Congressional Budget Office analysts review the bill and its effect, both on Americans and the nation's finances.

Four Republican senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Mike Lee of Utah, already said they can not support the bill as it's now written. According to the former Head of State, he expects senators to wonder themselves what will happen to USA citizens´ addition to Opioids and who suddenly lose their cover, or to pregnant women, disabled children or poor adults.

"Any senator who votes for this bill is clearly prioritizing a meaningless political victory over the health and livelihoods of the American people", Yarmuth said in a statement.
