Support universal health care

But at least two of the women in the Senate, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, aren't keen on messing up health care and, according to The New York Times, are less likely to go along with the new plan simply to show party unity. In addition, instead of the federal government's reimbursing states for Medicaid expenses for each person, states can turn the money into a "block grant", which would cut the program still further by enabling states to kick people off Medicaid coverage, charge premiums, and cut benefits for children.

After Trumpcare fails, Senate Republicans are going to be looking to make a deal with Democrats to get a health care bill passed.

The measure also would cut nearly $840 billion from Medicaid, the federal-state health care program for the poor, disabled and elderly. But the District of Columbia may not seek such a waiver.

After the media discovered that the AHCA would still guarantee congress members affordable insurance, regardless of what their states do, McSally quickly introduced a separate bill to remove the exemption. Some use their spouse's insurance, or insurance held over from a previous job.

Among those polled, 48 percent of Americans said the legislation was a bad idea, and 43 percent felt strongly about it. "The fact is, this is working".

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., was treated for breast cancer past year.

"We have to fix those things that are broken", he said Thursday, "but we also have to protect the people that are covered under the Medicaid expansion". Jones said that could have improved the legislation and built public support for it.

"I think it is safe to say that the Affordable Care Act has brought billions of dollars to our economy and if those dollars were to go away we would see dramatic impacts to our entire health care system", she said. We will get more details later this month from the President on what he wants to do on the budget, as he starts to fill in all sorts of fine print on spending, cuts and even taxes.

Republicans are less enthused, noting that premium costs have risen for some.
