GOP lawmaker cautions health care bill is Obamacare 'tweak'

She - along with most House members - has probably not read it, as was the case with the Affordable Care Act. For comparison, the temporary high-risk pool, created by the ACA for the 3-1/2 year period preceding implementation of the ACA's prohibition on pre-existing condition exclusions, exhausted its $5 billion in funding earlier than expected and had to curtail new enrollment before the program ended.

The ad refers to a provision that will allow insurance companies to charge adults five times more for insurance than younger people buying on the individual market. Many Republican-led states refused to set up their own state exchanges.

What about the small number of people who have pre-existing conditions who can not afford health insurance in the normal markets, and who are not covered under Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, or their employer provided coverage? But those moves - while they may win consensus among Senate moderates - are unlikely to sit well with House conservatives. For example, AHCA would cut Medicaid, which helps fund health care for the poorest Americans, by $880 billion, according to the AARP. The past will once more swallow us up by underfunding Medicaid both throwing many Americans off of Medicaid coverage and shrinking the pool of physicians who will see Medicaid patients.

State Sen. Charles Scott, R-Casper, was a leader in the Wyoming Legislature in opposing expanding Medicaid under Obamacare. We have to hold Republicans accountable for causing millions of Americans to lose insurance coverage. In Georgia, running for the seat vacated by Trumps Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Democratic candidate Joel Ossoff has openly assailed the House-passed bill.

"It's clearly needed", he said.

Congressmen Rob Wittman and Scott Taylor know the health insurance issues and did the right thing voting "yes" for passage of the bill.

Rep. James Byrd, D-Cheyenne, disagrees.

Even though the House plan lowers the subsidies, Paul said in an interview on Fox News he's "not that interested in subsidizing the profits of insurance companies".

"It's maintaining the profitability and protectionism of those industries to the detriment of the average Wyoming citizen", he said.

So I ask again: Don't they get sick?

The AHCA also plans to support discrimination against those with preexisting conditions.

The House bill is now in the Senate, and McKinley says he's open to whatever changes they may make. The Democratic Party has spent almost 10 years lying to the American people on health care, and it is to the detriment of the American people that they continue to do so, and get away with it. "When we leave 90 percent of the language in the bill, I would not call that personally a repeal". I will gladly support a tax cut ... once all Americans are ensured affordable health care, clean air and water, a quality education, modern infrastructure and protection against the devastating effects of climate change.

"We're opposed to this bill as it's now written", she said.

The American Health Care Act comes as Obamacare enters the last leg of its death spiral. In 2015, 90 percent of Wyoming residents enrolled under Obamacare received subsidies, which Cartwright said is because of Wyoming's high insurance rates. The ACA has reconfigured the fundamental structure and culture of how health insurance operates in the United States.

Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner of IL, a state that expanded coverage under Obama's law, said he will push senators to change the legislation so the impacts are not as dire for the state. He said he's confident Wyoming's senators listened to his concerns. In its score before the House withdrew its first attempt to pass the American Health Care Act, the CBO estimated as many as 24 million people could lose their health insurance by 2026 under the American Health Care Act. It has everything to do with an enormous shift of wealth from working people to the richest Americans.

These EHBs also are helping to transform our health care system from one focused exclusively upon disease to one with a more balanced focus on prevention and care. No Democrat voted yes.

Next the bill will head to the Senate, where Trump is confident the bill will pass. "We do expect that the Senate will take more time".

Of all the people who will be harmed if the bill becomes law, children may be the hardest hit. The EHB provision mandates that most insurers cover mental health care, along with a variety of other services. Tough luck, say the Republicans, "get a better job".
