Backed Obamacare repeal bill disliked by 2 to 1 in poll

Divisions within the Republican Party ultimately led to the bill's being yanked as lawmakers failed wrangle enough votes on their side of the aisle for passage in the House.

Republicans long criticized Democrats for passing former President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law with no GOP votes.

"Proposals should maintain key insurance market reforms, such as coverage for pre-existing conditions, guaranteed issue, and parental coverage for young adults, as well as. adequately fund Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program, and other safety net programs", the AMA wrote.

"Today Republicans' core values were on full display, demonstrating the disgusting belief that only the rich are worthy of access to healthcare". The patient protections and essential benefits of the Affordable Care Act should remain in place for all Americans.

Both clubs thoroughly deserve to be here, having finished in the top two and having showed remarkable composure under pressure to edge their semi-finals.

We must provide health care to the countless hardworking New Yorkers who can't afford coverage or costly procedures, and could be most significantly impacted by recent federal legislative efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The House still passed the measure by a vote of 217-213. "We're seeing senators leading", said Sen. CHIP offers the health coverage through Medicaid and separate CHIP programs.

A new Kaiser Family Foundation analysis estimates that 6.3 million people - 23 percent of 27.4 million non-elderly adults with a gap of several months in insurance coverage in 2015 - could potentially face higher premiums under the House's American Health Care Act (AHCA), due to pre-existing health conditions.

Among those polled, 48 percent of Americans said the legislation was a bad idea, and 43 percent felt strongly about it. According to a recent report, "women have unique health care needs - and almost half of all women have an ongoing condition requiring regular monitoring, care, or medication". On May 8 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appointed 13 senators to a special committee that will focus on the bill. "Working alongside the administration, making health care more affordable and accessible for all Americans will continue to be our top priority and this legislation sets us on a course to achieve that". Community rating regulations under the ACA placed limitations on how much an insurance company could vary insurance rates for individuals in the same geographic area based on their health status.

But the House GOP bill would slash federal spending on Medicaid and wind down the expansion that was enacted under Obamacare ― and that 31 states plus the District of Columbia took advantage of.
