The Dangers of the Senate Health Care Vote

"We again urge the Senate to engage in a bipartisan process-through regular order-to address the shortcomings of the Affordable Care Act and achieve the goal of providing access to quality, affordable health care coverage to more Americans", said Dr. Barbe, a board-certified family physician from Mountain Grove, Missouri.

While many Americans across the country enjoy the traditional summer respite, there's no slowing down for members of Congress who face another packed week of hearings, meetings, votes and negotiations.

"The health care reform proposals now under consideration would harm millions of struggling Americans by leaving too many at risk of losing adequate health coverage and continue to exclude too many people, including immigrants", Bishop Frank J. Dewane of Venice, Fla., said in a statement.

Federal support for Medicaid would shrivel even more over time under the Senate bill, likely forcing states to tighten enrollment, cut benefits or reduce provider rates, the Congressional Budget Office found.

President Trump promised Americans he would improve our health care system.

GOP Set To Release Budget With Tax Reform Reconciliation Instructions
Members demanding tax reform details before agreeing to vote for the budget "isn't a fair understanding of the process", Rep. But it is still below the $668 billion that the conservative House Republican Study Committee had sought.

Senate passage of a health care bill would set up discussions with the House, which approved its version in May.

The organizers of the Women's March, the tax day protests and April 22's March for Science are involved - as well as Indivisible, a hub of left-leaning resistance with hundreds of local chapters; the Barack Obama-aligned Organizing for Action and Bernie Sanders' Our Revolution; leading progressive groups including Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress Action Fund and more.

"To date, the amendments proposed to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act fail to meet these basic requirements and would harm vulnerable patients in every state", said AMA President David O. Barbe, MD, MHA, adding that a potential partial repeal would be no different.

Researchers analyzed patient visits at emergency departments across Maryland both for an 18-month period before the Medicaid expansion took effect and an 18-month period afterward using data from the state's Health Services Cost Review Commission. These include multiple versions of the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act and a "repeal-and-delay" strategy, each of which is potentially doomed thanks to previously stated opposition from a mix of conservatives and moderates. All 48 Democrats voted against it, as did two Republicans-Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska-creating a 50-50 deadlock which was broken by Pence's vote.
