Health care bill needs to be done right

With the current Republican proposed health care legislation the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) estimates that 22 million Americans will lose their health care insurance. "But the Senate Republican bill is cruel and would take us backward".

Senate Democrats, most Republicans and all women were denied admission.

Wright recently returned from Washington, where she and members of The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists lobbied Republican Senators on the fence about the GOP's health care plans. That's why I strongly oppose the Senate health care bill.

Health care is an issue that is very sensitive to Americans' daily lives.

Merkel picked the city as the summit host in part to show world leaders that protests play an accepted role in a vibrant democracy.

Many private insurance companies are bracing for losses should the Republican health bill be passed and major cuts to federal financial assistance and programs like Medicaid be made.

In a joint statement, the medical groups said they are not just speaking for doctors, but also "thousands of low-income Alabamians served by them", and they are concerned the Senate bill "fundamentally changes how Medicaid is funded".

"What I've been hearing the entire recess is people telling me to be strong, that they have a lot of concerns about the health care bill in the Senate, they want me to keep working on it, but they don't want me to support it in its current form", said Sen. Because, of course, if the Republican-controlled Congress passed a law putting Obamacare on a one-year sentence to oblivion, the same members who can not agree on a replacement plan now would be able to agree on one then.

You could convince me that they would feel under even more pressure to come up with a new plan.

Trump tweets fake video of him attacking CNN logo
While the origin of the edited version of the WWE clip was unclear, it was posted on a pro-Trump Reddit thread four days ago. The video's creator placed a CNN graphic over the face of McMahon, conveying the message of the president attacking CNN .

Like you, however, we can easily figure out that a Republican scheme that would take health insurance away from more than 20 million Americans over the next 10 years and remove $800 billion or so from Medicare funding isn't going to be particularly popular. What care would we decide they don't need anymore? Hospitals, especially smaller rural hospitals, would be hurt.

As one Trump administration official put it bluntly, "I really think they'll bribe off the moderates with opioid money and then actually move policy to shore up Mike Lee and Ted Cruz".

Conservatives arguing for Medicaid cuts contend the rate of spending growth is unsustainable; that if it isn't reined in, the program will imperil the millions of poor people, including children, who rely on it. There's no indication that health or access to health care would improve under this plan. Medicaid isn't required to cover those services, but it is required to cover nursing home costs for people with disabilities who can't care for themselves.
