Senate Group Draws Fire for Lack of Women Working on Health Care

As most people in MA know, the plan had its start here in the Bay State as a compromise between a Democratic Legislature and Republican Gov. Mitt Romney. The Congressional Budget Office's analysis of an initial version of the House bill predicted that it would result in 24 million Americans losing coverage. It would allow insurance companies to charge higher premiums for the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions and limit Medicaid coverage, among other changes. There are several Republican senators who are not on board.

For one, Senate GOP leaders have chose to write their own version of the healthcare bill instead of trying to pass the version that the House GOP passed.

"I think the more voices that we can put on a panel to help get this done, the better".

President Donald Trump walks from Marine One across the South Lawn to the White House in Washington, Sunday, May 7, 2017, as he returns from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

A separate news article in the same paper reports that phased funding reduction of Medicaid expanded under President Obama would not start until 2020 under this bill.

He said that if Republicans "deflate their base" by not following through on their promises, Democrats will "for sure" walk away with a victory in 2018. Ryan also addressed some Republican House members' admissions that they did not read the AHCA in its entirety, often leaving it up to staff members. In fact, they hoped that the Senate would soften the blow to millions of their constituents who would be negatively affected by their vote. All told, it would decrease federal spending on the program by $880 billion over the next decade, the CBO estimates.

Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, are conservative firebrands who represent states that didn't expand Medicaid but want additional funds for that program. "So, to the extent - I'm not going to tell Leader McConnell or the White House is not going to tell him how to conduct a panel", Spicer said.

Insurers in states like Iowa and Virginia have announced exits from some of the Affordable Care Act's individual insurance markets in recent weeks.

State Medicaid data also show that OH schools would lose about $8 million a year in Medicaid funding for special education services under the House bill.

Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., was set to appear on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" after saying any GOP bill must pass "the Jimmy Kimmel test".

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who is fresh off winning reelection and has been willing to buck party leaders in the past, is also not in the working group.

If you've only followed coverage of the Republican health care bill loosely in the media, you might believe that House Republicans, after much effort, passed legislation to deny people with pre-existing conditions health insurance. In many states, premiums have been rising and insurance choices dwindling.

"I'm already having those discussions", Collins said. The legislation maintains a federal baseline of protection in such cases, and says only that states can apply for a waiver from it, provided that they abide by certain conditions meant to ensure that no one is left out in the cold.

This is particularly important as the nation grapples with health care policy and Republicans attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act - colloquially known as Obamacare. But some say it's out of character for Republicans to replace the ACA with a system that bears any resemblance to single-payer health care, which Republicans historically oppose.
