Reader has questions about the health care vote

"Republicans gave up on their first attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare when a March 23 Quinnipiac University poll showed 17 percent of American voters supported their bill", said Tim Malloy, the poll's assistant director. What's more, setting aside $8 billion for high-risk pools for those with pre-existing conditions doesn't go almost far enough and will make coverage unattainable for many self-employed entrepreneurs. And 52 percent of those polled agreed with the statement that "it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure all Americans have health care coverage". The proposed funding limits mean states will have less money to support the benefits and services outlined in their Medicaid plans, including assistance for Medicaid-eligible children who receive health care at schools. Before passage of the Affordable Care Act, the Senate held a thorough, collaborative, and deliberate process.

The entire behavioral health community is extremely dismayed by the recent vote in the U.S. House (217 to 213) to approve the discredited American Health Care Act (AHCA). Some governors already have begun pressing their senators to soften the bill in ways that would lessen the financial blow to the states.

Rep. Stefanik also said there was "misinformation" about cuts to Medicaid and said the new bill "modernizes it". "Make no mistake about it", Trump said at a celebratory White House appearance with House Republicans.

As the Senate takes up the House bill to replace Obamacare, Republican control of Congress likely hangs in the balance.

"First, GOP leadership and rank-and-file members are united in their desire to repeal as numerous ACA's taxes as possible - particularly the 3.8 percent net investment income tax - as part of healthcare reform and NOT tax reform", the commentary said. So let's say the premium is $1,000 a month, your high risk premium would be $1,350 a month and now you can see why sick folks went broke. What will happen to the 75 million people now on Medicaid including the millions of seniors on long-term care? In other words, Republicans want to force states to change their laws in order to prevent women from being able to afford abortion services.

The way this bill was initially brought to the House floor for consideration was not as transparent as it could have been, and we should have had a final Congressional Budget Office score before passing it. "They're trying to put our hospitals out of business".

Michael Banerian is the youth vice chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. They also provide a foundational basis for parity of mental health and substance use benefits with medical care benefits.

Changes ("cuts") to Medicaid coverage and phase out of expansion. If so, I guess you are OK with not providing affordable health insurance options for people with preexisting conditions. That's roughly 712,000 people. And in so doing, Blum and others are understating the impact of the bill that, if enacted, could drop millions from their insurance by next year. "We're going to draft our bill and I'm convinced we will take the time to do it right", she said.

Our reporter found plenty of loopholes that could cost people their insurance, especially if your state opts out of the provisions. Unfortunately, after seven years those promises have been unfulfilled. Even that was a hard choice to make, he said.

Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., noted Trump comments about protecting people with pre-existing conditions and said, "We have to ask ourselves, are we serious about President Trump's pledge?" We know that because there were high-risk pools before Obamacare in certain states, and the outcomes were punitive.

Health care is personal and many have expressed concerns about protections for those with pre-existing conditions.
