Democrats in Legislature speak against GOP health care bill

It's the people we love - our children, friends and neighbors - who are the inspiration behind our American Health Care Act, which we passed in the House earlier this month.

Shortly after taking office, President Donald Trump set out to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and said what those of us in health care have known for a while: "Health care IS complicated". They led a coalition of 16 attorneys general in seeking to intervene in a lawsuit filed by Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives that undercuts the affordability of health insurance plans under the ACA. Don't believe it when he says the ACA is failing, the marketplace is thriving and more people are enrolled than ever.

An estimated 5 million people would lose Medicaid coverage in 2018 under the House health care legislation, according to the last analysis of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office. The next reporting date, in 90 days, will be after carriers have filed their rates, which is intolerable for the health care insurance market and is likely to undermine the health insurance market, harming states and consumers.

"This has been the biggest thing that's ever happened to us", he said. "It was introduced the night before, and only a few members of the Republican leadership took it up". "The actions of the federal government are a direct assault on NY and our values, and we will do everything in our power to stand up to the ultra-conservative agenda and ensure that all New Yorkers continue to receive the affordable, high-quality care they deserve".

"This was a very important piece of legislation, and the cost shift onto you, so that someone else can have a tax cut".

I would encourage our senators to respect the will of those people who voted for the president. Moreover, the newly drafted GOP health care bill would allow states to escape a requirement under Obama's 2010 law that demand insurers to charge healthy and seriously ill customers the same rates.

Jennifer Haberkorn, senior healthcare reporter for Politico Pro, discusses the plan being considered by Senate Republicans, and the CBO's findings of the healthcare bill. If 50 Republican votes are secured, the bill would pass due to a tie break by Vice President Mike Pence, according to the AP.

Senate budget rules require the AHCA to save $2 billion over 10 years in order to be taken up under reconciliation - a process that would allow Senate Republicans to pass the bill with only 51 votes.

"They will have a lot to say about what is going to be the final product", said Larson, who hopes to see a conference committee formed. They would no longer have to sign contracts with insurance companies and deal with the administration of health plans, he said. In New York alone, the state offered roughly 730,000 residents in cost-sharing reduction subsidies in 2017, principally through the Essential Plan, which is administered by the State with the assistance of private insurers.

Right before our eyes, under the influence of Trump, health care is now being commodified, and moreover being turned into something that is only accessible to the "have's", essentially denying the basic right of life to the "have-not's". "All too often, families are forced to face a cruel dilemma - pay for costly health care or put food on the table", he said.

Although he would support universal health care, said Larson, he needed to be realistic about the situation. The American Health Care Act is a major improvement because a federal one-size-fits-all approach to health care isn't the answer.

"I don't think we can get there now".

"While there is serious concern about the numbers in this study, I think that's moderated a bit by the belief that this is not the bill that's going to end up coming out of the Congress" said Chris Geehern, executive vice president at Associated Industries of MA.
