Arizona's Republican Gov. Doug Ducey said Friday the Senate GOP bill falls short of what his state needs. A handful of Republicans senators have already come out against the bill in its current form, and with so little time to make amendments and so many voices in opposition, the BCRA might not make it to Trump's desk.
"If President Trump thought the health care bill in the House was mean, I can tell you that the Senate Republican plan is downright nasty", Menendez said. "It isn't that much different than what was proposed before", he said.
"My team and I will continue to work with Vermont's congressional delegation and other Governors who are advocating to protect the progress we've made in health care".
It's the Republicans latest attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. So I have a feeling that the insurance they sell you on the day you have the heart attack might have a few loopholes - like not covering hearts. "We have not addressed that adequately", Sen. "I think they'll get some points".
Right now, some counties in Missouri, Ohio, Indiana and Washington will have zero health care options in the Obamacare markets next year.
The draft bill comes nearly two months after the House passed its own measure. I think they saw that when the Democrats tried to write a big health care bill just with Democrats it didn't end up being a good policy.
"The Senate bill may be even meaner". His office said Friday the senator had no further comment for now. The bill would create a new system of federal tax credits to help people buy health insurance, while offering states the ability to drop numerous benefits required by the ACA. She said she's focusing on senators who previously said they didn't want to cut Medicaid.
Small business owner Molly Connor is one of 70,000 Hoosiers who may lose her insurance on Indiana's exchange. The measure also repeals the mandate on individuals to purchase health insurance.
"As we estimate the cost of the subsidies to buy insurance, we actually believe they may exceed, or at least equal, the subsidies that are under Obamacare", said Paul. Johnson said, "It's weird what we've done to our healthcare markets".
