Democratic Senator May Defy Party to Vote for AHCA

08 Mai 2017

"The Senate is starting from scratch".

"I think we'll get it through", Trump said Thursday during a photo op with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York City.

Moderate Senate Republicans are expected to reject or tweak several elements of the bill.

"They have this vote tattooed on them".

Republicans must now try to maneuver the measure through a Senate terrain that is different politically and procedurally from the House.

"Trumpcare battle is just beginning", added House Democrat Joe Kennedy III, urging liberal senators like Elizabeth Warren to lead the upcoming fight. "Obamacare premiums and deductibles are way up - it was a lie and it is dead". It encourages young people to buy insurance by offering an age-based tax credit for people making less than $75,000 a year. The AHCA also defunds Planned Parenthood and could make a myriad of serious and common health conditions, as well as sexual assault a pre-existing condition which could cause Americans to be denied coverage by insurance companies.

Mr Obama defended his signature achievement in Boston on Sunday night while accepting the John F Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

Without it, "a number of these people would prematurely end up in nursing homes", Graddy says.

"But it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable, and the sick and the infirm". "The bill passed by the House today doesn't do that".

NBC News is only aware of one CBO score that the GOP had received for its health care legislation, and that was provided for an older version of the bill that failed to make it to the floor of Congress.

"Not only would the AHCA eliminate health insurance coverage for millions of Americans, the legislation would, in many cases, eliminate the ban against charging those with underlying medical conditions vastly more for their coverage", Dr. Andrew W. Gurman, president of the American Medical Association, warned in a statement Wednesday, May 3.

Price said during appearances on two Sunday talk shows that Medicaid was fundamentally flawed.

The Raimondo administration says the Republican plan, if it holds, could mean a loss of nearly $200 million in federal Medicaid funds over four years and drive up the number of uninsured people.

Kasich said 700,000 people in OH use Medicaid, and many them have a mental illness, drug addictions or chronic diseases.

Krista Stark, an organizer and executive director of Southwest Missouri Democrats, said the protest was an effort to voice disappointment at Long's flipped vote on the bill.

Vote in the unscientific, informal poll below and tell us why in the comments. Democrats are positioning health care as the issue that will help them regain control of the House.

There can be no doubt that this legislation would erode protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
