PEARSON: The protections around preexisting conditions are still in place in the Senate bill, but the waiver authority gives states options that could include limiting coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
The Senate bill would also reduce subsidies now provided to help people without workplace coverage get private health insurance, said Caroline Pearson, a senior vice president of the health care consulting firm Avalare Health.
Under Obama's law, "many of those people would have gotten much more generous plans", she said. Jobs in the health care sector will be lost. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has stated that basing taxcredits on age would increase out-of-pocket costs for many low-income Americans, according to the Associated Press.
The Senate bill would eliminate the individual and employer mandates, scale back some of Obamacare'stax credits, and cut off Medicaid funding to Planned Parenthood for one year.
He ended the statement with a call to action, urging supporters of the Affordable Care Act to call their senators, visit their offices, and speak out.
Obama reacted to the Senate GOP's plan to repeal Obamacare in a post on his Facebook page late Thursday afternoon.

In 2015, they drafted the second best player in the draft with the No. 2 pick in Jahlil Okafor . Magic Johnson chose to stay home and drafted Lonzo Ball from out of UCLA with the #2 pick.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has already indicated that he will not support the bill in its current form because he said it doesn't go far enough to uproot the ACA, also known as Obamacare - the same reason many conservatives didn't support the GOP's American Health Care Act earlier this year.
Obama has largely kept out of the political fray since his departure from the White House - weighing in on just a handful of Donald Trump's actions through written statements, such as his successor's travel ban on refugees and several Muslim-majority countries, and the decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.
That could include the number of years the bill would take to phase out the extra money Obama provided to expand the federal-state Medicaid program for the poor and disabled to millions of additional low earners.
The proposal, which is dubbed the "Better Care Reconciliation Act", would change how states fund their Medicaid programs by shifting to block grants or per capita caps on spending.
MCEVERS: In the Senate bill, the rollback of the Medicaid expansion is more gradual than what it is in the House bill. "President Obama envisioned a day when consumers could shop for health coverage 'the same way you'd shop for a plane ticket on Kayak or a TV on Amazon'".
"The way this bill cuts health care is heartless. Cuts to Medicaid will lead to more asthma attacks".
By 2024, the bill would end Obamacare's federal money to expand Medicaid, which has allowed 4 million Californians to get insured.
Little wonder premiums and deductibles would both rise on the individual market - more broken Trump promises.
The Anti-Defamation League called on authorities to probe the slaying of a Muslim girl in suburban Virginia as a hate crime. She was reported missing to police, sparking an hours-long search by authorities in Fairfax and Loudon counties.
