Shimkus calls vote for health care change a promise fulfilled

The Latest Texas senator interviewing for FBI director

I don't care who you are - we're all going to have a pre-existing condition at some point in our lives. Except that it's not.

If you think the healthcare bill Republicans passed last week won't affect you, think again. Mostly the "losers" of the act are lower-income people, older people, people with pre-existing health conditions, Planned Parenthood, hospitals and state governments. For starters, it would cut $900 billion from Medicaid over 10 years.

"Senate Republicans, increasingly unnerved by President Trump's volatility and unpopularity, are starting to show signs of breaking away from him as they try to forge a more traditional Republican agenda and protect their political fortunes".

"With so many people depending on Medicaid, it's obvious this is something that our state needs and she needs to fight for for our state", Carey Jo Grace with West Virginia Healthy Kids and Families Coalition said. They must be living in a cave.

It's also important to remember that the health-care plans in the ACA and the AHCA are not necessarily comparable.

As the Senate reviews House Republicans plan to overhaul Obamacare, a handful of conservative senators are pushing for some steep cuts to the federally-backed health insurance program Medicaid. Maybe Gov. Hogan might have a lengthy career in politics after all. It's usually called passing the buck.

If you're like most Americans, you're a few years (or more) behind on your retirement savings. We have Canadian friends who complain about the system being somewhat slow to provide non-emergency care.

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".

So, Senators, get to work. It's a nice idea but not realistic. On top of that, they are not really even getting rid of the individual mandate. And while they earn more than the federal poverty level, they are well below what is considered minimal household income levels.

It moves 7 million Americans off of employer-sponsored insurance and into uninsured status.

Since Republicans have the leadership, how about trying for a bi-partisan bill with an amended (bipartisan) name: "The Affordable American Patient Protection and Health Care Act" with the best from both plus improvements (such as including dental care).

Formed in 2016, Save My Care is affiliated with Eric Kessler, a former White House appointee who helped to manage conservation issues during Bill Clinton's administration. It is not between the AHCA Medicaid reforms and pretending that Medicaid as we know it can continue indefinitely. Next week we celebrate National Women's Health Week. Susan Collins and Bill Cassidy, which, according to The Hill, would keep Obamacare's current taxes and give states the option to remain with Obamacare or to form something different while continuing to receive federal funding.

Republicans were determined to kill Obamacare, and now they are going to sink under the weight of their own failure.

They can no longer do that.

The U.S. Senate could rewrite the bill before a final vote.
