Defending Senate Repeal Effort, Trump Trashes Obamacare

In a tweet, the former secretary of state wrote, "Forget death panels".

In the same tweet, Clinton linked to a story by the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan policy institute.

"We will certainly be watching health care legislation as it develops", Dollar said.

The Republican vote on the bill could come down to that assessment in question which would determine aspects such as how many citizens stand to lose their insurance coverage, how the premiums would be impacted, and its effect on the federal budget deficit.

It is now up to us to let our Senators know that this bill is unacceptable. Despite promises to the contrary, it will leave millions of people without health coverage, and others with only bare-bones plans that will be insufficient to properly address their needs.

The move to repeal Obamacare has already created chaos in the insurance market; the replacement proposed by Congress would destroy the market entirely.

The bill, which was written behind closed doors, is facing its fair share of criticism from Democrats who say that it negatively mimics the House's plan. Sen. That should be the central issue for Republicans-repealing Obamacare and making health care more affordable.

With Republicans in the Senate holding only a 52-48 seat edge, they can afford only two defections to get to a 50-50 tie, allowing Vice President Pence to then presumably break any logjam. More than half a dozen GOP senators have expressed problems with the measure, and a defeat would be a humiliating setback for Trump and McConnell on one of their party's top priorities.

And they would bar people from using tax credits to buy policies that pay for abortion and also block Planned Parenthood from getting any money from Medicaid for a year. "While we are still waiting for final numbers, every indication is that the plan unveiled by Senate Republicans will be even more devastating". "And I'm announcing today that in this form, I simply will not support it".

"We're anxious about the burden it creates for the states", Kristine Grow, spokeswoman at America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), said on Friday. However, the legislation can be amended before it's put up for a vote, so it's still possible that it will be tweaked enough to gain the support of enough Republicans to pass. "So we're going to see very significant reductions in coverage in Medicaid and big cuts in federal funding that will result in significant budget gaps for states". It would erase taxes on higher earners and the medical industry that helped Obama's law expand coverage by roughly 20 million Americans.
