Draft Obamacare Repeal Plan Targets The Individual Mandate, Medicaid, And Abortion Coverage

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, in a letter to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., last month estimated the state's portion of Medicaid expansion will amount to $1.2 billion over the next five years.

Tensions emerged Saturday between Democratic and Republican U.S. governors over a GOP-led proposal for a major overhaul to Medicaid, with Democrats saying the changes would take away people's health coverage to finance tax cuts for the wealthy. More than half said Medicaid is important to them or family members.

Under Obamacare, states can choose to take additional federal funds to expand Medicaid.

If the federal Affordable Care Act is repealed in its entirety, the county would have to once again absorb the costs of providing health care to several thousand indigent residents who now receive health insurance through the act's expanded Medicaid program - called Medi-Cal in California. Those would be replaced by tax credits based on a person's age. It would rise to $4,000 for those over 60. One month after unexpectedly finding themselves with a Republican in the White House and a majority in both chambers of Congress, it's become apparent that Republicans aren't going to quickly coalesce around a plan to overhaul the USA health care system.

Walker supports congressional Republicans' efforts to repeal Obamacare.

And.... That's a no to Republican ideas for Medicaid.

Trump vows to treat DACA recipients with 'great heart'
Trump has indicated on several occasions that people who qualify for DACA would be excluded from his immigration crackdown. At the detention center, it was determined he Ramirez Medina was a DACA recipient and did not have a criminal history.

In San Diego County hundreds of people have protested weekly outside of Congressman Darrell Issa's office, and have organized their own town hall in Vista. More than 84,000 people signed up or renewed health coverage under the ACA in the area that includes Norfolk, Newport News and Portsmouth, the agency reported.

Spokesmen for the House Energy and Commerce, and Ways and Means committees, which are drafting the legislation, declined to comment on the leaked bill. The draft bill does not prohibit providers from offering abortion coverage.

But, it also said: "Obamacare's Medicaid expansion for able-bodied adult enrollees would be repealed in its current form".

The signature project of former President Barack Obama, the ACA created state Marketplaces that offer health insurance plans.

The replacement plan would have no individual mandate. Johnson Supervisor Rod Sullivan said that those on Medicaid are the people who are most in need of health care. People who elect not to buy insurance at the outset would pay a surcharge when they do, and could end up paying more if they've been ill. So far, Republicans have not agreed on a replacement that is best, but work is still being done to replace the ACA.

The first step also could enact some elements of a new system, such as expanded health savings accounts popular with many Republicans, GOP aides and lawmakers said.
