Senators on defensive over all-male healthcare panel

People attending Rep. Rod Blum's town hall event in Dubuque, Iowa, this week held up red sheets of paper to show disagreement with what the Republican congressman was saying, and green to show they concurred.

Stephanopoulos brought up how some members of Congress didn't read the GOP health care bill in full before voting for it and how "there wasn't a CBO analysis of this bill". Constituents have been asking a lot of questions, and we've been fact-checking the answers given by some leading GOP lawmakers.

-It punches a hole in the required coverage of certain specific medical conditions like maternity and mental health benefits and the protection against higher costs for those with pre-existing conditions.

"No, no, no", Reed told the parent.

If the House bill becomes law, premiums will come down for some people, mostly young, healthy, affluent people _ but they'll rise for others, mostly the working poor.

Delaware trooper fatally shot outside convenience store
After shooting the officer, Sealy called relatives and told them what he'd done, McQueen said, and they reported that to police. Travers continues that he then saw a man exit the vehicle and shoot the fallen officer several more times before running away.

One of the earliest controversies in the House's health care bill was the issue of tax credits.

Many liberals, including Bernie Sanders, are now promoting the idea of moving in the opposite direction: a federally administered insurance and health delivery market. It is not clear which states might apply for such a waiver, or what the process would be for getting one.

Officials in CT have set up a similar task force, and NY lawmakers say they are prepared to hold a special session later this year to deal with any fallout from the health care changes.

Scalise, like Reed, is pointing to the language in the bill that retains the Obamacare rules that prohibit insurers from charging people with expensive medical conditions more than their neighbors of the same age for an insurance policy. "This measure would slash funding for this critical health care safety net and roll back a large portion of the benefits in states such as Arizona that expanded eligibility in recent years".

"Under the American Health Care Act, the individual and employer mandates are being removed, Obamacares taxes are nearly entirely eliminated — over $800 billion in tax relief — and there will be more choices, competition and affordability than under current law, while continuing to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions and allowing children to stay on their parents' policy as they can under current law". Insurance companies and government decides what you can and can't buy and what you pay in this totally regulated and bureaucratized business.

Federal Reserve Leaves Interest Rates Unchanged
What's more, inflation fell for the first time in more than a year in March, while consumer spending numbers were flat. The weak consumer spending and subsiding inflation pressures did little to change expectations of a rate hike in June.

The promise of protecting people with pre-existing conditions was at the epicenter of Trump's own campaign stump speeches. "But it's not helpful to suggest, you know, that we wanna get a single payer system". The entire health insurance market will financially implode unless it's changed. Bill Cassidy, R-La., on an alternative health care overhaul and with other senators on how to revamp Medicaid. Under the MacArthur Amendment, if a state opts for a waiver, essential health benefits now include mental health treatment, don't have to be covered by insurance companies.

They also might no longer be subject to restrictions on annual and lifetime spending caps.

"Millions of Americans are drowning right now under the tidal wave of Obamacare regulations and mandates that have destroyed our entire health care system".

But Ryan said it was necessary to replace Obamacare which he said is failing.

Blum's second statement - the one in regards to Medicaid - is false. This healthcare bill is NOT going to become law the way it's now written. "They should be calling their senators and making their opinions known that these are benefits they depend on for their health and their well-being, and they do not want to see these extreme cuts happen to Medicaid".
