GOP owns health care dilemma now, and voter skepticism

13 April 2017

Mr. Trump and congressional Republicans say they haven't given up and are still working to assemble the votes needed to overturn major pieces of former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act. This was an inspiring, hard-fought win for everyone who believes health care is for all. The American Health Care Act would have also revoked the ACA's Medicaid expansion and reformed the Medicaid eligibility determination process. They aren't eligible for premium tax credits. We can't say the same thing about politicians. Opponents not only appeared among the Democratic members of the chamber, but all over the House Republican Conference. Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee and other progressive leaders.

The ads press moderates to back a revised version of the measure that the Trump administration offered last week in talks with conservative legislators.

The Trump administration says it is willing to continue paying subsidies to health insurance companies under the Affordable Care Act even though House Republicans say the payments are illegal because Congress never authorized them.The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to reduce deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs for certain low-income consumers. There could be renewed interest in a public option that could allow people to choose government-sponsored insurance rather than a policy from a commercial carrier. These proposals are also created to take resources from working and poor families in order to hand ever more wealth to corporations and the rich.

Congress and President Trump have a mandate, a historic opportunity and a responsibility to improve health care by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

On April 6, 2017, the House Rules Committee advanced another provision in an impromptu meeting.

I'm equally astounded that cutting health care for millions while giving tax cuts to millionaires could be considered good public policy. The future of the USA healthcare system may come down to how flexible congressional leaders, both Democratic and Republican, are in adopting these key words.

But insurers are looking at a longer-time horizon, as they need to make preliminary decisions about whether to participate in the exchanges by mid-June at the latest for many markets. But he suspects it has more to do with people learning more about the ACA.

These details aside, the fight is clear. While your members of Congress are home for recess, tell them to stand on the right side of this choice.

Republicans, insisting that the funds weren't explicitly allocated by Congress, thought they might be able to crash the insurance markets by using the courts to scrap the subsidies, making it vastly more hard for struggling families to pay for their medical care. Instead of cutting these programs, we should expand them to begin to serve the real need. He said the provision would effectively result in a return to the days before ObamaCare, when people with pre-existing conditions were routinely denied coverage.

To fix the deteriorating health care system, we should look to those who are on the front lines every day.

Make our health care stronger by making it more affordable and less profit-driven.
