Governors wary of Medicaid cost shift in Senate health bill

"Little negotiation, but it's going to be very good".
US President Donald Trump acknowledged that a lack of support from four Senate Republicans leaves the party's healthcare overhaul on a "very, very narrow path" to win passage, but signalled a willingness to work with them to make changes. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he hoped for a Senate vote by the end of next week.
Predictably, Democrats were firm in their opposition to the GOP bill. Sen.
"There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current healthcare system but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their healthcare costs", the quartet continued in their statement.
Graham said he feels "comfortable" that the Senate bill will not deny insurance coverage to people with pre-existing medical conditions, a point of contention in the House measure. Even if a trashing of Obamacare turns out as badly as liberals expect, Republican members of Congress in safe, gerrymandered districts could be insulated from the heat.
"If there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family - this bill will do you harm", Obama wrote.
"Unimaginably, the Senate today took a bad House health care bill and made it much worse for the American people". Meanwhile, health insurers that provide Medicaid coverage stand to lose if millions of the program's recipients become ineligible.
Republican leaders in the Senate crafted the 142-page draft during weeks of closed door meetings.
"It's a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America", Obama said on Thursday in a 1,000-word post on Facebook.
For the past seven years, Republicans have worked to repeal the landmark health reforms of Trump's Democratic predecessor Barack Obama.
"It's not surprising that this was has been kept secret, It's meaner than the House bill", Wagner said in a conference call with reporters Thursday sponsored by Policy Matters Ohio. The Senate parliamentarian will make that decision. Governors in states that expanded Medicaid are wary of a bill reveale.
"Republicans believe we have a responsibility to act, and we are", he said. That would focus the aid more on people with lower incomes than the House legislation, which bases its subsidies on age.
"I haven't read the text yet", he said. "We can not allow Washington to rip the rug out from under OH communities", Brown said.
Rebecca Farley David, vice president of policy and advocacy of the National Council for Behavioral Health, says the bill is worse than her group feared, leaving states like Missouri that already have budget problems to provide services with fewer dollars.
"We live in the wealthiest country on earth".
The Senate bill would phase out extra money Obama's law provides to 31 states that agreed to expand coverage under the federal-state Medicaid program.
Asked several times at the Thursday briefing at the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she had nothing more to add to Trump's tweet. Bill Cassidy, R-La. "The Senate Bill may be even meaner".
Democrats and some insurers say Trump has sabotaged the Affordable Care Act, in part by threatening to withhold subsidies paid to insurers so they can reduce deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs for millions of low-income people.
In his signature fashion, he lauded his efforts thus far. As the nation's medical schools and teaching hospitals see every day, people without sufficient coverage often delay getting the care they need. "And the reason that Medicaid is being cut is to finance these tax cuts, and everybody needs to be clear about that".
McConnell said Democrats chose not to help frame the Bill, which Republicans say would fix a collapsing health marketplace.
Hoff, who studies healthcare implementation, noted that the Senate measure is a "bit softer" than the House bill. States would manage the program, and Washington would help with some of the funding. Starting in 2025, the cap would be allowed to increase at the rate of inflation in the economy. "If the final legislation is good for OH, I will support it".
