Protesters greet GOP health care bill

23 Juin, 2017, 19:22 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The Senate version of the bill proposes heavy cuts to Medicaid funding, gives states the right to weaken protections for pre-existing conditions, temporarily cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, and repeals taxes on wealthier Americans that were used to fund numerous Affordable Care Act's provisions. And it blocks federal funds to Planned Parenthood for one year and for health plans that cover most abortions. This long-awaited proposal marks a big step toward achieving one of the Republican Party's major goals - reversing a key part of President Obama's legacy.

Capitol police dragged away protesters from outside the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, right after the Senate released the details of its health care plan.

The Better Care Reconciliation Act would repeal ACA taxes on corporations and individuals who pay for insurance subsidies. And, today, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and three other Republicans said they oppose it as written.

"This is important and welcome news for New Yorkers that the Senate leaders have recognized the burdens placed upon taxpayers for far too long and included our amendment to force Albany to end its unfunded mandate on New York's counties once and for all", Collins said.

"We feel strongly this would set Georgia back from healthcare access for the most vulnerable people in our state and that is definitely something we don't want", says Beth Stephens from Georgia Watch.

The tax was part of Obama's health law, and it has always been unpopular among Republicans, as well as business groups and labor. But it then allows states to ask for waivers to opt out of that requirement.

It also would make it harder for states to provide insurance companies the ability to charge sick people and those with pre-existing conditions more for coverage.

"Senate Republicans weren't making the House bill better".

Mahaffey also criticized GOP leaders for not seeking enough input from the health care industry. The Massachusetts senator took to her social media accounts to accuse "cruel" Republicans of enriching those "who make a lot of money" by shortchanging "30 million kids who get their health care through Medicaid". It also limits the growth of Medicaid and eventually phases out the expansion, which has added more than 400,000 people to the rolls in Arizona. The House's bill factors in age, but not income, when determining how much financial assistance to provide people.
