Health Care Bill Likely to Spend More Time in Senate

Patient advocacy groups are warning the American Health

Collins said that any Congressman who claimed to have read the entire bill between when the final version of the legislation was posted Wednesday night and the Thursday vote was nearly certainly dissembling.

When asked Thursday by CNN's Wolf Blitzer whether he was aware that the bill cut a health program that served 635,000 in New York State, Collins said that while he had not read the bill.

Other key components of the bill include: Phasing out Medicaid expansion and allowing states to opt out of requiring insurers cover things like maternity leave and mental health treatment.

" Repeals Obama's taxes on people with higher incomes and on insurance companies, prescription drugmakers, some medical devices, expensive employer-provided insurance plans and tanning salons".

Rep. Jim Renacci, over parts of Cuyahoga, Medina and Summit Counties, sees no problems when it comes to pre-existing conditions.

Here is a summary of major provisions of the House bill, the American Health Care Act. "That is who's out there selling lies against my party". Here's what the GOP health care bill could mean for Latinas. Perhaps the American people should take their criticisms with a grain of salt. And in place of government-subsidised insurance policies offered exclusively on the Act's marketplaces, the bill would offer tax credits of $US2000 to $US4000 a year, depending on age. This time, Republicans were in such a rush to pass the bill - breaking their own pledge to release all legislation at least two days before any votes - that we don't understand the full impacts.

Many Republicans admitted they hadn't even read the bill. "We are protecting everyone with pre-existing conditions no ifs, ands or buts about it and so the final product here is really a healthcare plan that will serve America for decades", said Representative Chris Collins of NY, a Republican.

As Republicans crossed over the vote threshold to pass the bill, Democrats in the House began singing 'Na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye, ' a rowdy suggestion that Republicans will lose seats in the 2018 congressional elections due to their vote. "They are going to be able to have access to affordable health care", she said. That is likely to lead to more frustration for President Donald Trump, who has already expressed disappointment in the slow-moving ways of Congress.

Senate Republicans are openly questioning the process pursued by their House colleagues. "As far as I'm concerned, your premiums are going to come down".

"They all seemed to just burst into song".
