Democrats see a winning issue in opposing GOP health bill

Which accounts for a whole lot of people in this state, some of whom most certainly vote Republican.

"We cannot allow people in this country to go with inadequate health insurance or with no health insurance, because no matter how old you are, something like this could happen to you", he said.

This just in: Health care is not a game.

Collins, however, said one of the problems with the tax credit in the House bill is that it's not adjusted for variations in income and geographic regions across the U.S. That "really hurts a state like ME, where we have an older population" living in rural areas where health care is more expensive, she said. Under Obamacare, the federal government gave the state $3 billion annually for the program, covering 80 percent of the cost.

Rubio, and his fellow senators, face a decision of a lifetime.

President Donald Trump urged Senate Republicans on Sunday to "not let the American people down", as the contentious debate over overhauling the US health care systems shifts to Congress' upper chamber, where a vote is potentially weeks, if not months, away. Some governors already have begun pressing their senators to soften the bill in ways that would lessen the financial blow to the states. The Republican plan would also bring back lifetime caps on coverage, which Williams says she would meet after only her first IV treatment.

"The issues with prices and premiums going up, hopefully, people will see that we are trying to solve the problem", he said.

Republicans pushed their healthcare restructuring through the House on a 217-213 vote, handing President Donald Trump his first major legislative success.

As soon as Trump was elected, state officials were on notice that changes were likely. This is the second time in the past several weeks that House Republicans have tried to unite behind a new health care bill.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a moderate Republican whose vote will be critical in getting a bill to Trump's desk, voiced concerns about potential higher costs for older people and those with pre-existing conditions. "Nobody dies because they don't have access to health care".

The Obama-era law expanded Medicaid with extra payments to 31 states to cover more people.

"I do small business roundtables all over the state of Texas and sit down over and over and over again, with small business owners, and I've never done a small business roundtable when at least half of the small business owners around the table didn't list Obamacare as the single biggest challenge that they face in their business", said Cruz. The House bill halts the expansion, in addition to cutting federal spending on the program.

"This waiver just made things worse but it was bad enough before the waiver", said Rep. But it also said implementing those changes by 2020 gives states little time to figure out what to do.

The House health-care bill "is a disaster for Hoosier families", Sen.

"It will kick 24 million Americans off their insurance coverage", Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) said.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a former Republican candidate for president, has been consistently critical of his own party's attempts to make deep cuts in the Medicaid program.

Two, if Senate Republicans cobble together a less politically charged health-care bill, it could be Senate Democrats on the defensive. "I think that the Republican Party will be rewarded", said Reince Priebus, Trump's chief of staff. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California has threatened that GOP lawmakers will "glow in the dark" over their vote. "I don't know what insurance options will be available to me when I am 26". That's roughly 712,000 people. "Now it's up to us to pass a bill 51 senators can agree to".

"Absolutely, I'm scared. I'm anxious I'm going to have to figure out what I'm going to do with all my side effects with my leukaemia if they take this away from me", she said.

A Congressional Budget Office estimate on an earlier version of the American Health Care Act estimated that 14 million people would lose their health care through the Medicaid cuts alone.

THE FACTS: The history of high-risk pools and broad expert opinion call all of this optimism into doubt.

The bill will undergo surgery when senators start to work on it, and therefore the future of the legislation remains uncertain. "Truman wrote in his memoirs that it was one of the most disappointing political defeats of his career".

TRUMP, on pre-existing conditions: "We cover it beautifully".
