House GOP repeats Obamacare mistake

Here’s who stands to lose the most if the GOP’s health care bill actually becomes law Digital Editor

The Congressional Budget Office estimated that 24 million would lose coverage under the original version of the AHCA. In order to keep the gears of Capitol Hill turning, the generous interpretation goes, House Speaker Paul Ryan had to move some sort of Obamacare replacement up to the Senate, where it is sure to be rewritten. Ryan said the House vote was one part of a "multistage process". Pence made many trips up to Capitol Hill for meetings on the bill, while both moderate House Tuesday Group members and conservative Freedom Caucus members brought up their requirements for earning "yes" votes on the bill. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., pointed to the working group of Senate Republicans trying to write their own measure - "13 white men, when you have five Republican women who are excluded", she said.

"This is a first step in fixing the issues of the high out-of-pocket costs of health care premiums and the bureaucracy of the ACA, though it is not a flawless bill", Stivers said in a statement regarding the bill. "This is going to be very hard to walk back from".

The American Health Care Act, which narrowly won passage in the House on Thursday, could transform the nation's health insurance system and create a new slate of winners and losers.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME, who has been working on her own healthcare plan, said she was reaching out to moderate Democrats to try to find common ground. Turner says the current law has led to young people in California, for example, going from paying $50 per month for coverage to more than $600. Kim raised more than US$43,000 [NZ$62,000] online over the last week for a possible run. They were also much easier to read than the bill they had just passed, even as they reacted as if it were about to be prom night in Washington.

Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who is not seeking re-election next year, warned that the bill "has the potential to severely harm the health and lives of people in south Florida". Among the vulnerable Republicans is two-term New Jersey Representative Tom MacArthur, who helped revive the bill by authoring a key amendment on pre-existing conditions. The television and online blitz is expected to seize on the more unpopular provisions in the GOP plan, which was opposed by the AARP, the American Medical Association, which represents doctors, and the American Hospital Association. He said repealing Obamacare is "critically important for Kentucky" citing few insurance carriers and more than 30% on Medicaid.




Republicans have blamed it for driving up healthcare costs.

"For the House leadership to proceed to a vote without an estimate, they are essentially arguing that the bill is so much like the previous one they don't need an estimate, and yet, it is so much different that many more people should vote for it", Elmendorf also told Politico.

Yet now that the Republicans control Congress, they haven't learned from this history.

Cannon: It's not like we have one side that wants people to have health care and one side that doesn't want people to have health care.

"The House bill is not going to come before us", she said.
