Who wins, who loses with Senate health care bill

Share

-Delay a new "Cadillac" tax on high-cost health insurance plans until 2026. That language could be forced out of the bill for procedural reasons, which would threaten support from conservatives, but Republicans would seek other ways to retain the restriction.

Congressional Republicans have vowed since its introduction in 2010 to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. This is what he has to say.

Over time, the flexibility built into the legislation and the return to more market competition should slow the rise of insurance premiums. However, the draft of this bill contains a provision that disqualifies any health plan that provides coverage for abortions from being a qualified health plan. Those decisions in this legislation include what each state's insurers would have to cover and how much each state wants to spend on the Medicaid program.

Obama, who posted his response to the Republican-led effort to repeal what is widely regarded as his signature domestic achievement on Facebook, did not mince his words. It was enforced through the tax code. And sometimes people forget that this is also a tax bill, right? What does it do on that front?

When it comes to the process, both parties are bathed in hypocrisy.

The Republican plan essentially repeals all of that.

-Repeal a new Medicare payroll tax on high-income families, saving them about $59 billion over the next decade.

The 142-page draft was largely written behind closed doors, drawing criticism from some, and it would change key provisions in ObamaCare including making deep cuts to Medicaid.

"I'm pleased that we were able to arrive at a draft that incorporates input from so many different Members, who represent so many different constituents, who are facing so many different challenges", McConnell said while presenting the bill on the Senate floor on Thursday.

CORNISH: Polls have shown that the Republican proposal is fairly unpopular (laughter). So.

CORNISH:.Politically speaking, why are they pushing it? "So we're going to see very significant reductions in coverage in Medicaid and big cuts in federal funding that will result in significant budget gaps for states". The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll out today tells a part of that story.

[The proposal], at least in the near term, retains weakened versions of almost all of Obamacare's core features while fixing few if any of the problems that Republicans say they want to fix.

"We'd love to have some Democrats' support, but they're obstructionists", Trump said. Senate Republicans would c. However, the four senators do appear open to negotiations and amendments that could turn their "no" to a "yes". But four senators have announced their opposition: Ted Cruz (TX), Rand Paul (KY), Mike Lee (UT), and Ron Johnson (WI).

Pass this bill the way it is, and that is exactly what will happen. Moderates including Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, have expressed concern that the measure would cause many to lose coverage. "They can choose to keep standing by as their failing law continues to collapse and hurt more Americans, but I hope they will join with us instead to bring relief to the families who have struggled under "Obamacare" for far too long".
