Senate Republicans intend to ram through secret health care bill

Senate Republicans intend to ram through secret health care bill

"Our members and other Americans over age 50 are very anxious about legislation that would raise their premiums through what is, in effect, an age tax, weaken Medicare, undermine protections for people with pre-existing conditions and make changes to Medicaid that would put some of our most vulnerable citizens at risk", said AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond. The Congressional Budget Office also estimated that 23 million more Americans would be without insurance in 2026 compared to the current baseline.

"I've said from Day 1, and I'll say it again", said Sen.

"Senators have studied the House bill and listened to many interested individuals and groups and are now writing the Senate's own bill", the spokeswoman, Jill Gerber, said.

"All I know is what I read in the paper on that", he told Sen. "We think it's critical that Americans across the country understand what's at stake for them and their families if the U.S. Senate passes this bill".

However, Senator Casey says he's hearing from Republican colleagues that the Senate version of the bill matches the House version 80 percent. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) if the Senate bill keeps about 80% of the House approach. "We hope that this meeting will lead to Republicans abandoning both repeal and their repeated sabotage of our health care system, which has sowed uncertainty in the marketplaces", he said in a statement.

The bill passed by House Republicans last month would phase out in 2020 a Medicaid expansion to additional low-income people.

Governor Wolf said Pennsylvania stands to lose a lot if Medicaid is cut dramatically.

By the way, we now know what President Donald Trump really thinks of the House bill.

John Kasich (R), Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D), Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval (R), Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) and Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) signed the letter.

It would put the Medicaid program, an essential service for people in nursing homes or who have disabilities, on a glide path to inadequacy, leaving state budgets in shambles. The House bill retains that protection but lets states allow insurers to charge higher rates to people who have had coverage lapse.

Some moderate GOP senators are trying to extend the phase-out over seven years and ease some of the Medicaid cuts the House bill would make. President Trump has made a regular part of his attacks against Democrats in Congress by calling Senate Democrats "obstructionists", arguing they are slowing work on all of his nominations.

As GOP Senators left yet another health care meeting on Thursday, there were no predictions of an imminent deal - "not there yet" was what Sen. It suggests no specific policy proposals. The same group is increasingly tired of conservative Republicans in the Senate who are pushing for steep, drastic cuts to Obamacare's Medicaid expansion program.

The Senate is now considering the Obamacare replacement bill that narrowly passed in the House last month, despite almost universal opposition from health care advocates and organizations.
