Amber Phillips: Republican governors could kill the GOP's health-care bill
30 June, 2017, 00:59 | Author: Marjorie Miles
West Virginia has the trifecta of health care problems; we are older, sicker and poorer than most states.
After the House passed a health care bill in early May, Republicans went to work drafting their own version behind closed doors. Just 11% of independents and 2% of Democrats feel that way.
Paul said one proposal he offered was to divide the bill into two, one of which would pass with the Republican majority and another on a spending bill, which could earn Democrat votes.
Under the draft Senate bill, healthcare subsidies would be tied to the cheapest ObamaCare plans that cover about 58 percent of costs. "I want to make sure that we're not in a situation where we're cutting taxes for the wealthy and at the same time, basically, for lower income citizens, passing a larger burden on to them", Corker said. While a member of the House, Capito voted multiple times to repeal Obamacare, but when given the opportunity in the Senate to actually vote for a replacement she couldn't do it. Wyden said he's anxious that the GOP's plan is to "to kind of double down on the flawed strategy of health care, which is just to do it in secret and then expect to see if maybe they can get a couple of Democrats to go along".

McConnell, with his reputation as a strategist on the line, met with a procession of Republican senators in his office on Wednesday. A 52% majority say they need more information before they can express a view.
"Mitch McConnell, announced that voting on the bill would be delayed until after the Fourth of July".
He said the bill provides "an enormous tax break for the rich" and would cause 22 million to lose insurance. Just 6% say that protection isn't important to them.
It's likely that should the Senate pass the bill, support would sharply increase among Republicans, which would push the overall approval number way up.
Cassidy said. He pointed to the alternative health care legislation that he and Collins had introduced, called the Patient Freedom Act, as an "earnest" attempt at bipartisan compromise. Just 10% say that isn't important to them.
If Obamacare remains intact, the government would spend an estimated $415 billion next year on Medicaid, and $624 billion by the year 2026, according to the review of the bill from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
In other words, federal funding would grow in raw terms as the U.S. population grows and the total number of people on Medicaid increases, but the amount per person would not be as generous as the current system. There's conservatives like myself who don't want new federal programs, we want to repeal Obamacare.
"There's a debate between the people who would like the program to be bigger".
Another 19 percent said they trusted President Trump the most on the issue, which lags behind his handling on other topics such as the economy and national security. These changes could leave numerous nation's seniors unable to afford or obtain health care.
